In continuing with the compact development process, the Malawi Millennium Development Trust (MMD) working with the Government of Malawi (GoM) and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) are currently exploring the underlying root causes of the three key binding constraints to economic growth identified during the Constraints Analysis Phase of Compact Development. The key binding constrains are: rural roads/farm-to-market linkages; land access/land administration; and macro-economic stability. After the root cause analysis, Malawi will need to assess these sectors to identify promising areas of opportunity, identify and develop projects that are likely to yield high impact, and identify those impacts and beneficiaries of proposed projects.
To assist with this exercise in respect of the land access/land administration constraint, MMD seeks to recruit a Land Sector Lead who will work with GoM and MCC to identify feasible and sustainable solutions throughout the compact development period. The Land Sector Lead will engage substantially with senior officials and senior experts in various Government of Malawi stakeholder institutions, other donors, the private sector, and local authorities; effectively integrate a range of related technical disciplines and MCC requirements; and serve as the senior technical liaison with MCC on land.
To be successful, the Land Sector Lead must be highly motivated and highly organized; be able to develop relationships and sustain engagement with a wide range of stakeholders at the highest levels in government, the private sector, and other donor organizations; and be able to work collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams.
