CIRDI is currently seeking experts for several short term activities for the SUMM Ethiopia project.
The Supporting the Ministry of Mines (SUMM) Ethiopia project is a five-year, $15-million project funded by Global Affairs Canada. The project is designed to strengthen the capacity and organizational management of Ethiopia’s Ministry of Mines, Petroleum and Natural Gas (MoMPNG) at operational and strategic levels.
SUMM’s ultimate objectives are to improve resource governance and sustainable long-term management of the Ethiopian mining sector. The project aims to enhance data acquisition capacity of the Geological Survey of Ethiopia (GSE), and strengthen mineral licensing and administration institutions of the Ministry.
CIRDI is calling for a variety of international experts to support this project. The work will include needs assessments, analysis of systems and operational structure, bench-marking to global leading practices, curriculum design, and training. A major portion of the role will involve working closely with MoMPNG and the GSE by advising, mentoring and supporting technical teams.
Many of the assignments will be undertaken remotely, while some will require travel to Ethiopia. The final definition of the scope of work and level of effort will be determined in consultation with the SUMM Project Director, to whom all experts will report. These opportunities may be ongoing engagements and could include multiple assignments over the course of the project, until its conclusion in 2021.
Please see the attached document for more information. Expressions of interest will be accepted on an ongoing basis until the current needs are filled.
