ACDI/VOCA is promptly seeking a Strategic Learning Lead for the upcoming USAID Title II Development Food Security Activity (DFSA) in Kenya. The DFSA in Kenya is anticipated to be a multi-year project to address the underlying causes of chronic food insecurity. The activity will aim to sustainably reduce levels of acute malnutrition and increase food security in the most vulnerable households in northern Kenya. To achieve this, the ACDI/VOCA team will ensure the implementation of interventions designed to increase incomes, ensure access to nutritious food year-round, improve household nutrition and hygiene practices, and strengthen governance in communities affected by shocks and stresses.
The Strategic Learning Lead, a member of senior management team, will play a critical role in translating formative and implementation research findings into an evidence-based activity design. S/he will be responsible for improving peer-to-peer learning, knowledge sharing and application, activity-based capacity strengthening, data utilization, and collaboration, learning and adaptation (CLA).
