World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, is making a concerted effort to contribute to the post-2020 area-based conservation (ABC) targets that are likely to be adopted by the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) in 2021 or 2022. To this end, WWF-US is establishing a new initiative on 30x30. It has developed new principles for its ABC approach, is currently deeply reviewing ABC in selected landscapes and seascapes, and is scaling up its efforts to work with teams in its priority places to enhance ABC for nature and nature’s services to people for current and future conditions. This important work takes a science-based approach and includes improved management effectiveness of protected areas and other effective area-based conservation measures (OECMs); renovation of degraded areas; redesign of both landscapes/seascapes and individual areas; and expansion to new areas. Throughout this work, WWF ensures an inclusive, equitable approach that respects the rights and aspirations of Indigenous peoples and local communities. The programs promote sound governance practices, support populations in reaping enhanced benefits from their localities while adapting to changing conditions such as climate change and withstanding unwelcome external threats to biodiversity and ecosystem services. Combining this ABC effort with complementary work on durable finance including Project Finance for Permanence, the 30x30 Initiative team will promote long-term financing for networks of protected areas and OECMs.   WWF-US seeks to recruit a Senior Program Officer (SPO) for our Washington, DC office to support planning, coordination, communication, research and analysis, implementation and monitoring of program activities in the area-based conservation workstream under the new 30x30 Initiative. This workstream will support a portfolio of seascapes, landscapes and river basins, and the SPO will provide specific support to this process, managing specific components of the workstream while working closely with WWF-US goal and influence teams, place-based programs, and staff in other WWF offices.   WWF-US has had large past investments in area-based conservation in the Amazon region. Given the importance of this biome for global biodiversity, Indigenous peoples and local communities and stabilization of global climate, the Amazon is expected to remain a geographic priority for area-based conservation in the future.
