Greetings Afrik-ITes!

The announcement below is ostensibly for an environmentalist.  I
think it's appropriate for this forum since, behind the scenes, I
know that information technologies will play an increasingly
important role in the work of the organization.

They are specifically looking for candidates who are "computer
literate".  I personally think they would do well to consider
candidates who are cognizant of the many ways information
technologies can be used to promote interactions among environmental
scientists in Africa.

Cheers!
Jeff Cochrane
USAID/AfricaLink Advisor

Bank, the World Bank, UNDP, USAID, DANIDA, GTZ and the Norwegian

independent.

In February 1995, NESDA incorporated in Cote d'Ivoire as a
international non-governmental organization. The network is governed
