The Hiring Department/Division

The Position
  • Water resources cut across four main sectors normally represented as a nexus, namely water/energy/food/environment security – water for human consumption, hydropower, agriculture and environment
  • These are interdependent and closely linked as use by one sector will impact available resources for other sectors at any given time
  • The “water nexus” functions as a tool to assist decision makers to best balance water uses at any given time. The objective is to maximize sustainable benefits of available water resources in the wider socio-economic context necessary for sustainable development.
The objective of the post therefore is to:
  • Provide strategic advice to the director and operational leadership to water experts and consultants responsible for producing policy briefs, conduct periodic country sector studies and designing toolkits to generate the knowledge necessary to support RMCs capacity building programs in the water resources sector.

  • Undertake water resources modelling on the basis of the “water nexus approach’ in order to advice RMCs in water resources decision making – allocation, equity, use and access
  • Develop water resources policies, strategies and plans for member countries through the preparation and administration of advisory TA projects.
  • Evaluate water resources policies and projects; intra-regional and regional cooperation activities in the water sector; and on the role of water in developing rural economies and poverty reduction.
  • Lead and participate in the production of key policy briefs, position papers and guidelines on water resources; by liaising with government, academia/research institutions, private agencies and NGOs on water use issues, and help the Center develop appropriate responses. This will include responding to enquiries from the media and public,
  • Organize, originate and/or participate in the production of knowledge management and dissemination of information related to water resources management, including the drafting of Terms of Reference (ToR), the selection of consultants and the supervision of the technical aspects of their work,
  • Collaborate with Country departments to elaborate Bank’s water resources management and development related policy and programs, and when necessary participate in related policy dialogue with RMC’s governments; including the promotion of sustainable water resources management and development
  • Identify major opportunities for strategic collaboration with multilateral and bilateral donors to improve the governance of water resources in Africa; by engaging with them on policy advice
  • Contribute technical inputs to the preparation of country strategy papers and portfolio reviews, with particular reference to the governance of water resources,
  • Provide technical guidance and mentoring to other NRM experts in the ANRC, the ECON Complex, other relevant departments and the Bank’s Regional and Country offices,
  • Support the Bank and RMCs in identification, preparation and appraisal of water resources management and development projects
