We are looking for a Team Leader (f/m/d) (100%) to develop and implement our applied research program on inclusive and climate-resilient urban and peri-urban agriculture. Cities hold a great potential for food system transformation. Current urbanization trends make cities a focus of food security policies, embedding cities in landscape approaches is key to achieving climate resilience. This new program is also a response to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, as physical distancing measures reduced food access. On-going efforts to mitigate the impact of the pandemic offer the opportunity to contribute to more sustainable and inclusive urban and peri-urban food systems.
This project is financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
