Young Expert at ICCO Cooperation - Myanmar
YEP period 2018 - 2020, batch 15
As Programme Officer Inclusion & Innovation based in Yangon Myanmar, my role is within the ICCO Myanmar team is quite diverse, flexible, and combines process and content-related elements. I have three kinds of projects I contribute to. The three main programmes I play a role in are the ‘Pulses, People, Planet, Profit (P4)’; ‘Civic Engagement Alliance’ (CEA); and ‘Kerk in Actie (KiA) portfolio’. For P4 my role is to engage in monitoring and results management of a public-private collaboration to support development of Myanmar mungbean sector. This means guiding the learning agenda, gathering data, ensuring the programme moves toward impact and captures its effects. For CEA my role is to support coordination of local civil society partners implementing lobby and advocacy for smallholder empowerment and responsible agribusiness. This entails facilitation, communication and partnership building. For KiA, my role is to act as Programme Officer (contracting, monitoring, funding) a number of small-scale development projects implemented by local partners all over Myanmar. Finally, with the time I have left I am able to engage in action research and business development activities.
