Background

CORAF is an international non-profit association of National Agricultural Research Systems (NARS) from 23 countries, covering over forty percent of the African population, making it the largest sub-regional research organization on the African continent. It was established in 1987.

Digital technologies—including the Internet, mobile technologies and devices, data analytics, artificial intelligence, digitally-delivered services and apps—are changing agriculture and the food system. Examples abound at different stages of the agri-food value chain: farm machinery automation allows fine-tuning of inputs and reduces demand for manual labour; remote satellite data and in-situ sensors improve the accuracy and reduce the cost of monitoring crop growth and quality of land or water; and traceability technologies and digital logistics services offer the potential to streamline agri-food supply chains, while also providing trusted information for consumers.

In that aspect CORAF which is the West African leader in agricultural research and funding seeks to implement a new digitalization initiative, iCORAF, of its services and platforms. That initiative will require changing, upgrading, and improving its technological tools, platforms, and public-facing outlets.

CORAF is therefore seeking an experienced Web Developer to help upgrade his web architecture platforms and implement its new digital strategy.
