Researcher Vacancy in Governance and Delta Ecosystem Services
The University of Dundee (United Kingdom) is currently recruiting a researcher interested in working in a major inter-disciplinary research project at the UNESCO-IHP/HELP Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science. The project focuses primarily on the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna delta, but aims to produce results that are more broadly applicable to larger deltas.
The Researcher will assist UNESCO Centre research staff in fulfilling their obligations under this NERC-DFID-ESRC project, funded as part of the Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) programme. In particular, the successful candidate must be able to assist in
- Contributing to the development and application of methodologies to assess governance relevant to the sustainable provision of ecosystem services as they relate to poverty alleviation in large deltas; and
- Establishing and maintaining active engagement with key policy actors and stakeholders.
The UNESCO-IHP/HELP Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science is a Category II UNESCO centre that seeks to develop and share knowledge and expertise in international, national and transboundary water law and policy.
