World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organization, seeks a Program Associate for Enduring Earth. Enduring Earth is an ambitious partnership between the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Pew Charitable Trusts, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and ZOMALAB intended to help governments around the world expand and sustainably protect Nature and benefit communities with the target to conserve more than 500 million hectares in 20 Project Finance for Permanence deals over the next 10 years.
Experts have identified the need to protect 30% of the world’s natural habitat for the benefit of people and nature. According to a recent report by the Paulson Institute, a major barrier to achieving this goal is long-term financing. Enduring Earth utilizes a proven model, known as Project Finance for Permanence (PFP), that employs private sector finance principles to ensure entire systems of protected areas are sustainably managed and financed.
Under the supervision of the Managing Director of Enduring Earth, the Program Associate will assist with the coordination, management, communication and implementation of program priorities and activities. The Program Associate will be specifically responsible for coordinating amongst the four organizations, supporting and leading aspects of knowledge management and learning and providing administrative support to the core Enduring Earth team members, including the Vice President of the initiative.
