Gender Project Officer

Tanzania Natural Resource Forum
11 April 2016

In support of the Responsible Investments in Property and Land (RIPL) project, Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) is in need of a gender project officer who will join RIPL team to undertake all gender related project activities. As such, these Terms of Reference (TOR) describe the background, tasks and deliverables for the gender project officer to provide related services.
1. Background
With global attention focused on inequitable land-related investments, governments, donors, civil society, and the private sector have come together to improve land governance and investment practices. The African Union’s Guiding Principles on Large Scale Land Based Investments, the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), and other standards and principles are emblematic of the international community’s commitment to improving policy and practice leading to socially responsible land-related investments.
The RIPL project contributes to these on-going global efforts by supporting the participation and empowerment of communities, governments, and investors in such investments. Significantly, RIPL is committed to facilitating gender-equitable investments in land to ensure that women and men are not harmed by such investments and that women and men share equally in the benefits of investments.
The primary output of the RIPL project, in partnership with local land tenure experts, is the development of how-to guides, called “Playbooks,” for each stakeholder group (one for communities, one for investors, and one for government). The Playbooks will be developed in two focus countries—Tanzania and Ghana. These country-specific Playbooks will, in turn, inform the development of Model Playbooks that can be used as templates in other countries.
Thus, the services under this TOR are intended to provide the RIPL team in discharging all activities under the program.
