Are you a qualified Engineered Wood Processing expert with passion for supporting the growth of local wood industry through provision of technical assistance?
Opportunity exists for an experienced wood processing expert to work in an incubation program whose objective is to facilitate and stimulate investments and improve market access and penetration for Tanzania wood products through the provision of technical support for local investors in the engineered wood products value chain.
The Forestry Development Trust (FDT) is an independent Tanzanian institution that aims to transform the commercial forestry sector in Tanzania by facilitating changes at the sector level that will enhance and build competitiveness, inclusiveness, and resilience.
The Trust works with several actors including the central and local government, local and international partners, and all levels of commercial forestry tree growers (Large, medium and small). To implement its work effectively, Forestry Development Trust has four main departments being genetic resources, tree grower services, wood product markets and policy and institutions.
In the current state of investment into engineered wood products, there is minimum participation by local processors and investors. One major reason for low participation among local investors is limited access to technology and the required technical skills to operate EWP processing. To address this challenge, reliable technical support and advisory services to these local investors is key to improving quality and increasing access to export lucrative export markets.
Forestry Development Trust (FDT) is seeking to identify and engage a pool of local and resident wood processing experts who will provide technical support and advisory services to local investors under a proposed EWP investment incubation program.
