Internship opportunity: ALiSEA website content manager (full time, Vientiane, Lao PDR)

Application Deadline: 30/11/2017

Goal of the ALiSEA Website

ALiSEA website (http://ali-sea.org) is an attractive and user-friendly regional online knowledge-sharing platform on agroecology.

This website is instrumental for ALiSEA as a regional network since it fosters information and document sharing, enhance visibility of its members’ initiatives, and contributes to a better credibility of agroecology practices towards farmers’ federations, consumers and policy makers.

In the long run, ALiSEA’s goal is to enable local and regional agroecology stakeholders to leverage one another’s expertise to produce evidence based studies and share them broadly to support a regional transition towards agroecology.

Research dissemination and analysis, updates on local, national and regional agroecology related events, mapping past, current and future field level initiatives…—all shared via the ALiSEA website—are meant to make this possible.

The ALiSEA website must stay dynamic, informative, and appealing—adding value to members’ work—if it is to successfully persuade busy members of the governmental and nongovernmental agroecology community to join, participate, and sustain their interest over the long-term.
