Current Hiring Practices and Trends in the Development Sector
- BY David Mackenzie
I am a sustainable development consultant with post-graduate qualifications (PhD) and international experience, specializing in integrated approaches to climate compatible development and sustainable resource governance and management. I have more than 25 years progressive experience that combines technical knowledge, strong conceptual and analytical skills, and inter-disciplinary, applied policy research.
My experience over the years has been gained from working for and with international organizations, national and local governments and for specialist research organizations (UNEP; Institute for Security Studies; Government of SA; ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability) and it has embraced both urban and rural development. I have enjoyed working in challenging environments across the African region.
