Natural Resources Officer Position with USAID


The Supervisory Natural Resources Officer will support LRG by advancing USAID’s core land and resource governance programs and research agenda objectives, with a specific focus on advancing USAID’s existing and emerging programs on climate change, Indigenous Peoples’ and local community (IPLC) land rights, combating illicit mining and promoting responsible supply chains for critical minerals, and addressing the development, environment, human rights and social risks associated with programming designed to mitigate climate change or support green energy mineral production.

USAID’s Land and Resource Governance Division (LRG) within the Bureau for Resilience, Environment and Food Security’s Center for Natural Environment (CNE) works to clarify and strengthen the land tenure and property rights of all members of society, especially women. LRG collaborates with global partners to ensure that land and resource governance systems are effective, accessible, and responsive. CNE/LRG has expertise in the aforementioned technical areas and in geospatial information system applications, economics, rigorous impact evaluations, and legal and regulatory reforms to secure property rights and maximize resource productivity. It is also the home of USAID coordination and technical support for critical minerals programming, an emerging and rapidly growing area of work across the Agency.
