The Central African Republic is a landlocked country in Central Africa with an estimated population of five (05) million inhabitants. This country has been weakened by several years of political and military conflicts that have negatively impacted economic development and fostered the level of poverty of the population. National and international economic and commercial activities are hampered by the country's isolation and the inexistence of viable communication channels linking different parts of the country. At a time when the country is returning to stability, the economy in general and the agricultural sector in particular is struggling to recover. Agriculture, a major economic activity, occupies nearly 70% of the population, and is facing many challenges that constitute real bottlenecks at the root of the difficulties in reviving the sector. 

In order to seek solutions to the problems of the agricultural sector and to promote socio-economic development in the CAR, UNOPS and its partners plan to implement an integrated agribusiness project with a sub-component on "rehabilitation and maintenance of public infrastructures".

For the purpose of execution of an integrated agribusiness project with components on “rehabilitation and maintenance of public infrastructures” including rural roads, markets and other agribusiness infrastructures in the Prefectures of Ouham and Ouham Pende in the Central African Republic, UNOPS AFR CDOH CAR seeks to hire a Project Manager responsible for the day-to-day operations of the project(s) and provides services to the different donors, partners and beneficiaries.  He/she is expected to meet and exceed the organizations performance and delivery goals.
