Job description

Digital and green transformations are enormous drivers of development. But only when combined do they unleash their true power. Launched by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the European Commission (EC), the #SmartDevelopmentFund (#SDF) was initially launched to scale 8 digital solutions to support the global south addressing the COVID pandemicโ€™s challenges. Leveraging its learnings from its first project phase on the potential of digitization in strengthening local resilience and fostering female empowerment, the #SDF is currently paving its way towards untapping the opportunity for digitization in driving a twin transition that is just and inclusive.
