The COP will provide overall vision and leadership for the USAID Combating Conservation Crime in Honduras project, an Associate Award of the Targeting Natural Resource Corruption project, being implemented by WWF.
The purpose of this project is to improve environmental governance in Honduras by addressing corruption related to wildlife and timber trafficking, illegal logging, and wildfires. The project will seek to study and understand the drivers, risks, actors, and institutions involved in natural resource corruption in Honduras, and will implement pilot activities to strengthen institutional oversight and monitoring mechanism; strengthen capacity of investigators, judges, and prosecutors to prosecute environmental crimes and corrupt practices; and promote engagement of civil society to reduce conservation crimes. This project will focus on wildlife and timber trafficking, illegal logging, and wildfires.
The COP provides managerial and technical leadership and directs the project’s core team of staff and partners responsible for planning, coordination, design, and delivery of all project activities. The COP represents the project to USAID, partners, stakeholders, and government, and ensures the project is well coordinated with other WWF initiatives and USAID efforts. The COP applies a participatory, adaptive management approach to ensure that the program is efficient, effective, and achieves planned results. With support from WWF US HQ, the COP ensures that the project is implemented in compliance with USAID policies and regulations, including subgrants and subcontracts. The COP establishes and maintains good working relationships with project partners, participants, stakeholders, beneficiaries, and other relevant organizations in the region, including government partners and USAID personnel.
