Are you passionate about driving sustainability and climate resilience in developing nations? We are seeking a dedicated and innovative Monitoring and Data Program Officer to join our dynamic team!

The Organisation

The Global EverGreening Alliance (The Alliance) is an international NGO, which coordinates the development and implementation of large-scale land restoration programs.
