POSITION NOW CLOSED. The World Bank is seeking an analyst for a short term consultancy on their Enabling the Business of Agriculture (EBA) project.
The EBA project seeks to generate information which will enable policy makers to make more informed choices in the agricultural sector. The program combines the annual monitoring of comparative indicators across countries with periodic studies covering broader policy related issues and performance parameters identified as particularly critical. Special attention is given to those issues which are judged to be restricting the growth and development of the broader agriculture sector, and in particular of the family farming sector in developing countries. The project focuses on 10 sectoral topics, and this position will support the team working on Access to Water, seeking to inform and encourage policy and regulatory decisions that support inclusive, efficient and sustainable governance for the allocation and utilization of water resources for agriculture.
