Accounting & Business Management Jobs in Ethiopia 2024

Overview of the Organisation

With more than 30 years of expertise, Research Triangle Institute (RTI) has helped the public, commercial, and community sectors. RTI is an independent, not-for-profit research institution with headquarters in North Carolina, USA. It employs over 5,000 people and has expertise working on international development projects all over the world. Within the International Development Group, RTI’s Sustainable Growth & Resilience (SG&R) technical section brings together RTI specialists and skills in the areas of food security, agriculture, energy, environment, water, governance, and economic opportunity. SG&R will take use of RTI’s technological solutions and multisectoral programming design and delivery expertise to address climate change, foster resilience, and advance global economic development.

The Global Food Security and Agriculture portfolio of SG&R aims to address the twin burden of malnutrition worldwide, develop agricultural markets, and include women and youth as vital leaders of the on- and off-farm workforce. By reducing hunger in all its manifestations, strengthening food systems, fostering resilience, and involving the next generation of food security leaders, RTI’s work is contributing to these goals. Currently, RTI is collaborating on about 30 projects across East Africa, some of which are focused on market systems development in Kenya and private sector-driven agricultural growth in Rwanda.

Overview of the Project

The goal of the Feed the Future Ethiopia Transforming agricultural initiative is to make nutritious meals more accessible, especially to women and children, by enhancing the food and agricultural system’s resilience, inclusivity, and competitiveness in Ethiopia. Over the next five years, Feed the Future Ethiopia Transforming Agriculture is expected to generate up to 40% more revenue from agriculture. The initiative must closely cooperate with other USAID-funded programmes in the food and agricultural sector in order to achieve its objectives.
