The Land Portal Foundation seeks six dynamic and highly motivated regional consultants to conduct research about the land governance context in specific countries, as well as, to develop partnerships and to communicate land information. These are part-time (5 days a month) for a 12-month period,  with the possibility of renewal based on performance and depending on funding availability.
