Job Vacancies at Mwambao Coastal Community Network. Mwambao Coastal Community Network was established in 2010 to help communities in Tanzania’s coastal areas develop strong and effective local resource management systems that support livelihoods and sustain marine ecosystems. Mwambao employs a human-rights based approach and works to empower local communities and enable them to learn from each other through a community-based network spanning different coastal areas and communities. The network structure fosters learning as well as collective action on shared interests such as influencing policy. Mwambao has emerged as a leading actor in facilitating community-based marine management in Zanzibar as well as in north-eastern Tanzania working with a number of key international partners whose relationships need confident and sensitive mentoring. The team has expanded significantly in recent years in terms of funding, geographical spread, and diversity of approaches.

Mwambao currently has 63 full-time staff and established offices in Tanga, Pangani, Pemba Island and Unguja Island Zanzibar. Mwambao is currently engaged in a 5 years project entitled ‘Biodiversity Offsetting and Livelihood Restoration for communities of the MCHOMAPUNDA Community Fisheries Management Area’ with majority funding by the East African Crude Oil Pipeline Project. Overall, the project aims to address biodiversity offsetting and livelihood needs while promoting sustainable practices and resilience in the targeted communities.

The project goals are Livelihood Development, Increased Climate Change Resilience, and Ecosystem Reinstatement through increased capacity for sustainable community-led marine co-management in five communities within the MCHOMAPUNDA CFMA, Tanga by 2027. As pressure grows on marine resources, even when applying conservation and fisheries management measures, simply taking a business-as-usual approach can sometimes be insufficient to meaningfully increase household income. At the most basic level, reducing post-harvest loss could drastically improve incomes with estimated losses in marine fisheries in Tanzania at ~40%. In order to help lift the incomes of coastal livelihoods reliant on fish and other marine products, there is an opportunity to make improvements to the value chain and value addition enterprises.
