Within the framework of the Declaration for the Conservation and Sustainable Use of the Pantanal of 2018 celebrated by Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia, regional collaboration actions are being implemented within the framework of the upper basin of the Paraguay River that include a GEF international waters project that has as objective “Promote water security by strengthening transboundary water governance, sustainable development, balancing multiple uses and promoting integrated management of the Pantanal - Upper Paraguay River Basin for the social and economic well-being of the population and for the conservation of the freshwater ecosystem, its services, its biodiversity and connectivity”. For the execution of the Project, a technical team is required in the three countries of which the Regional Project Coordinator and Technical Advisor is part.
This position is a core position located within the PCU to be hosted by WWF. In order to optimize the use of project resources while providing the right skills set to the project, the responsibilities of the Regional Project Coordinator and Technical Advisor are a mix of technical and managerial ones consolidated into one position. In addition, since the position is full-time, the incumbent will be motivated to stay with the project throughout its duration and ensure retention. Furthermore, the incumbent’s focus could switch from project management to the technical matters in support of the job with ease which ensures greater efficiency in the conduct of activities.
Given that the PCU also counts a Technical Programme Assistant, National Technical Coordinators and part time technical consultants/experts to support the Regional Project Coordinator and Technical Advisor in its technical role, just like the Knowledge Management and Communications Specialist, an Administrative and Financial Management Officer will support the Regional Project Coordinator and Technical Advisor on project management tasks, the time of the Regional Project Coordinator and Technical Advisor is divided into 11% project management and 89% technical coordination, which is an indicative distribution of his/her time that could vary depending on the realities and demands of the job in the implementation of project activities
The Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program (EFN) is a conservation capacity development initiative by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). For the past 30 years, EFN has provided financial support to individuals and institutions worldwide to enhance local conservation science capacity, education, and leadership necessary to preserve biodiversity and natural resources. Today, EFN alumni work at the national, regional, or global levels, contributing to successful conservation outcomes.
EFN is currently seeking proposals for consultancy services to create a strategic plan for building a vibrant alumni network and engagement framework. This plan will help us expand our reach to alumni across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean who have been previously supported at various career stages, coordinate and foster partnerships within the alumni community, and ensure that EFN's initiatives adaptively evolve and continue to align regional and local priorities in WWF's priority areas.
EFN will consider proposals on a rolling basis until March 4, 2024, 11.59pm, US ET. Due to the constrained timeline, proposals received earlier will likely receive preferential review. Proposals should be submitted in PDF format via email to EFN@wwfus.org and copied to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email your queries three days before the closing date for any clarification.
WWF's Education for Nature Program (EFN) has been a champion of conservation leadership for three decades, providing financial support to over 3,000 individuals pursuing PhDs, Masters, undergraduate degrees, and short-term courses, as well as over 600 institutions working in 60 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. These investments have been critical in developing the capacity for conservation science and education to advance local leadership in the stewardship of natural resources.
EFN believes building a robust conservation science capacity and leadership network is essential to achieving more significant equity in local and indigenous-led conservation efforts. A strong and supported alumni network would connect and organize conservation scientists and practitioners across the regions on shared priorities, support individuals in their efforts to accelerate conservation outcomes and provide strategic guidance to WWF on the conservation priorities within the regions. In creating this network, EFN will bolster a two-way relationship that engages the EFN alumni in significant ways to ensure WWF is responsive to the specific conservation science capacity, education, and leadership needs.
