New rural sanitation position in Morocco with GIZ (in German) - Beschäftigungsförderung im ländlichen Abwassermanagement und Sanitärversorgung - by: christine http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/13642-new-rural-sanitation-position-in-morocco-with-giz-in-german-beschaeftigungsfoerderung-im-laendlichen-abwassermanagement-und-sanitaerversorgung#13642 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/13642-new-rural-sanitation-position-in-morocco-with-giz-in-german-beschaeftigungsfoerderung-im-laendlichen-abwassermanagement-und-sanitaerversorgung#13642

Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

Es gibt Orte, die verströmen eine Magie, die mit Worten kaum zu beschreiben ist. Marrakesch gehört dazu. Die wohl bekannteste Stadt Marokkos zeigt sich vor allem in der Altstadt, der Medina, von ihrer faszinierendsten Seite. Die Stadt ist eine einzigartige Mischung aus klassischer Urlaubsoase, trendiger Metropole und 1001 Nacht.

Dennoch ist das Leben vieler Menschen in den ländlichen Regionen Marokkos von Armut geprägt. Die Beschäftigung in der Landwirtschaft ist meist informell und unterliegt saisonalen und jährlichen Schwankungen. Das Einkommensniveau ist nicht existenzsichernd. Eine fehlende berufliche Qualifizierung verstärkt die Perspektivlosigkeit, insbesondere für junge Menschen. Unzureichend ist auch die Versorgung mit moderner Infrastruktur.

Die GIZ engagiert sich mit einem Projekt zur Beschäftigungsförderung im ländlichen Abwassermanagement und in der Sanitärversorgung in Marrakesch - einer Sondermaßnahme des BMZ -, um die Beschäftigungsmöglichkeiten im Abwassermanagement und in der Sanitärversorgung des ländlichen Raums in Marokko zu verbessern und zu nutzen.

Wenn Sie Ihr fachliches Know-how im Bereich ländliches, nachhaltiges Abwassermanagement und Sanitärversorgung einbringen möchten, dann freuen wir uns auf Ihre Bewerbung bis 28.06.2015.

Leiter (m/w) des Projekts Beschäftigungsförderung im ländlichen Abwassermanagement und in der Sanitärversorgung
