About the Position

The position fills a central role in the ACIAR funded project FIS/2020/172 on “Coalitions for change in sustainable CBFM programs in the Pacific”, where a key focus is on scaling CBRM in support of the priorities of Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources (MFMR) and provincial Governments in Solomon Islands.
