The National Drought Management Authority (NDMA) is a State Corporation established under the National Drought Management Authority Act, 2016. The NDMA Act (2016) mandates the Authority to exercise overall coordination over all matters relating to drought risk management and to establish mechanisms, either on its own or with stakeholders, that will end drought emergencies in Kenya.

The Ending Drought Emergencies (EDE) is a strategy of the Kenya Government which recognises that droughts become emergencies because the foundations needed to support sustainable livelihoods in drought-prone areas - principally security, infrastructure and human capital (education, health and nutrition) - are often weak. The EDE strategy seeks to accelerate investment in these development foundations, as well as strengthen the institutions responsible for managing drought risks.

Towards realisation of these objectives and with the support of the European Union, NDMA seeks to recruit a Knowledge Management Officer to be based in Nairobi with frequent travel to the field.

Primary functions of the position
The Knowledge Management Officer will be responsible for:
1. Design, development and adoption of learning and knowledge management practices.
2. Development of information products and systems.
3. Strengthening of institutional/stakeholder learning and sharing to improve practice.
4. Manage information to ensure sound investment decision-making and guide the formulation of policy and programmes.
