International land coalition seeks two long-term consultants

Deadline: 30/08/2015

Country: Italy

The International Land Coalition is a coalition of 207 organisations from 64 countries.  ILC’s function as a network brings together diverse but complementary efforts, particularly between intergovernmental and civil society organisations. ILC supports its members through its three strategic Objectives: connecting members with each other and with change-makers beyond the Coalition; mobilising members by reinforcing and equipping their efforts with the necessary knowledge, capacity, and opportunities; and influencing governments, their partners, and corporate actors

Members of the International Land Coalition (ILC) in Africa, Latin America and Asia are organized into regional platforms. Each regional platform meets once a year to approve ILC’s priority actions for the region, which are subsequently integrated in ILC’s global work plan. For each regional platform, a light regional coordination unit hosted by a member and headed by a Regional Coordinator supports the implementation of the regional component of the ILC work plan, under the oversight of a regional Steering Committee.

Moreover in 2012, ILC launched a new approach to country-level work (“National Engagement Strategies” – usually referred to as NES) to better serve one of ILC’s main objectives of influencing land-related policies’ formulation and implementation at national level  to realize people centered land governance.

Regional and national platforms are becoming more prominent in ILC.  In support of the effective functioning and strengthening of the regional  and national platforms, a regional contact point is established within the Global ILC Secretariat for each regional platform.

ILC Secretariat is Looking for:
