Driver & Administrative Assistant | Dar es Salaam, Tanzania | 2023
Driver & Administrative Assistant at Chemonics International Inc. December, 2023
Chemonics seeks
a Driver & Administrative Assistant for the USAID/Tanzania Heshimu
Bahari (Respect the Ocean) Activity. The activity is a five-year project
that aims to improve the ecological resilience and productivity of
Tanzania’s high marine biodiversity areas. Tanzania’s coral reefs are
among the world’s fifty most climate-resilient reefs based on biological
and oceanographic characteristics, and Tanzania’s marine and coastal
ecosystems support a diverse range of coral reefs, seagrasses,
open-ocean pelagic habitats, and mangroves.

Not only do the
ecosystems support species such as dugongs, sea turtles, and sharks and
rays, but they also support a variety of livelihoods such as artisan
fishing, aquaculture, and marine/coastal-related tourism activities.Overfishing,
poorly planned infrastructure projects, and climate change all threaten
not only these ecosystems and their fauna and flora, but also
livelihoods and food security. These obstacles, together with the lack
of a functional marine management area (MMA) framework, underdeveloped
governance systems, insufficient funding, and an unincentivized private
sector, severely limit effective management and measurable impact in
marine biodiversity conservation.

To help address these
challenges, Heshimu Bahari aims to establish an enabling environment and
science-driven framework for sustainable MMA and wild-caught fishery
co-management by government, communities, and the private sector. The
Activity has four integrated objectives:

  • Strengthening the
    enabling framework for a network of Marine Management Areas (MMAs) and
    Fishery Replenishment Zones (FRZs) to support biodiversity conservation,
    climate resilient communities, and sustainable wild-caught fisheries.
  • Community co-management of MMAs/wild-caught fisheries and climate resilience strengthened.
  • Private sector investment in MMAs and wild-caught fisheries expanded.
  • Integration of relevant science to MMA and fisheries policy and management improved.
