Intervention Officer at Enabel



Enabel is the Belgian development agency. It implements Belgium’s governmental cooperation. The agency also works for other national and international donors. With its partners in Belgium and abroad, Enabel offers solutions to address pressing global challenges – Climate Change, Urbanisation, Human Mobility, Peace and Security, Economic and Social Inequality – and to promote Global Citizenship. With 2,100 staff, Enabel manages about 170 projects in twenty countries, in Belgium, Africa and the Middle East.

Its staff members in Brussels and overseas embody the commitment of the Belgian State and other development partners to international solidarity.

Enabel is preparing the implementation of the recently signed five-year bilateral cooperation program (2024 – 2029), with a total budget of 95 million euros, in three priority development sectors in Rwanda: health, agriculture, urbanization and support in public financial management.

One of the key sectors supported is Agriculture, due to its contribution to food and nutrition security, incomes and employment among the population. Enabel implements or supports implementation of projects or programs that are financed within a country portfolio i.e. direct cooperation between the Belgian Government and the Government of Rwanda or financed by third party partners like the EU , SIDA or GCF.

The Partnership for Resilient and Inclusive Small Livestock Markets (PRISM 1) (2019-2023) was part of the country portfolio 2019-2023. In this project, the supported value chains were pig, poultry and animal feed . In January 2024, a new 5-year country portfolio (2024-2029) was signed. Under this program, the specific objective for the agriculture intervention is: “access to and the consumption of quality food for the growing urban population is strengthened, through developing sustainable, resilient and inclusive agricultural value chains within an enabling environment for food system transformation.” A second phase , PRISM 2 will be part of this program within which GoR has prioritised pig, poultry, rabbits and bee keeping value chains.

As part of 3rd party financing, Enabel is implementing the 4 year Kwihaza- Transformation towards sustainable food systems intervention (2023-2026). This project is funded by the European Union and the Government of Luxembourg through the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade (MFEA), represented by LuxDev, the Luxembourg Development Cooperation Agency. The target value chains for this project are the aquaculture, horticulture and -to some extent- fisheries value chains.

To support implementation of the agriculture programs, Enabel seeks to recruit an intervention officer (f/m).
