Environmental degradation and biodiversity loss are occurring at an alarming rate. Since 1970, global populations of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles have dropped by 68%.1    Although environmental degradation impacts everyone, evidence suggests that women bear an unequal burden from its impacts.2 For example, in regions where women are responsible for gathering firewood, local forest loss forces women to walk farther each day searching for wood.3 Similarly, women in Southern Africa must walk farther to fetch water when local water-supplying ecosystems dry up.4 Biodiversity loss affects the lives and livelihoods of women and girls through multiple dimensions and impact pathways.     The goal of this report is to gain a deeper understanding of the gendered impacts of environmental degradation in specific ecosystems, and as possible, the pathways and contributions that inclusively and sustainably managed ecosystems can make to gender equality.   Scope This CARE-WWF-branded report will seek to answer the question: what is the cost of environmental degradation and biodiversity loss on gender equality and how can stakeholders work together to address this issue? The CARE-WWF Alliance and consultants will work together to develop a methodology based on data availability and the consultants’ skillsets to answer this question. Potential methodologies being considered include a systematic literature review, quantitative analysis of datasets, a landscape review of organizations working in this space to identify trends and case studies, expert interviews about what they see as their top challenges and opportunities for making what they are doing more meaningful, impactful and sustainable, and community-based research using qualitative methodologies like key informant interviews or focus groups. The report will select and focus on four to five key geographies and landscapes (i.e. highlands, watersheds, forests, drylands, cities, oceans, etc.) – at least one of which will be in each of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Investigation will consider intersectional vulnerability but will focus specifically on the gender-based impacts. This research will be broken into two segments: Phase 1 will be completed by October 2021 to release in parallel with the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and include a potential side event to present the results of this report. Phase 2 will incorporate feedback and insights from the CBD, and the longer timeline will allow for potential methodologies that are more time-intensive, like community-based research. The consultant and the CARE-WWF Alliance will strategize how to break this scope into these segments so that Phase 1 will be both meaningful and realistic to complete by October. In addition, it will understand how environmental degradation and biodiversity loss interact with the structural forces that drive gender inequality. These impacts will be assessed based off their effect on the agency of women and girls and the formal and informal relations and structures that influence gender justice. This includes the impact of environmental degradation and biodiversity loss on men and boys, and their roles in the process of supporting women’s and girls’ empowerment in their households and communities.   Some of these specific research areas could include the intersections of environmental degradation and biodiversity loss with access to resources and capital, gender-based violence, decision-making and political participation and social capital, indigenous knowledge, agency, household division of labor, and sexual and reproductive health. The research will provide a series of recommendations that will help inform how policymakers, private sector entities, nonprofits, civil-society organizations, and communities can mainstream gender and integrate women’s empowerment into conservation and natural resource management policy and programming that drive both women’s rights/equality and ecosystem services/biodiversity conservation outcomes.

Coral reefs are critically important ecosystems which support the livelihoods of millions in coastal communities globally. They provide essential habitat for fisheries and tourism along with protection for coastal infrastructure and assets against sea level rise and increasing storm surge, making the socio-economic welfare of coastal communities closely linked with reef health. Despite their importance, coral reefs across the world’s oceans are severely threatened by local and global factors (overfishing, coastal pollution, and climate change) that have resulted in losses of 50 to 80 per cent over the last 50 years.   Given the gravity and urgency of the situation, continuing to apply even the most promising solutions in as many locations as possible is no longer sufficient to drive the change required. A global analysis (led by University of Queensland and partners) has revealed that some reefs have a substantially lower exposure to climate change stress due to local oceanographic conditions such as currents and upwelling.  These resilient and connected reefs embody the regeneration potential for the world's reefs once the stresses resulting from climate change have stabilized and are decreasing. Approximately 80% of these resilient reefs are found in developing countries and 90% of those are concentrated in seven countries: Indonesia, Philippines, Cuba, Fiji, Tanzania, Solomon Islands and Philippines. These countries together host 70% of the regeneration potential for the world's reefs. All of these resilient reefs are facing decline and loss of resilience due to increasing local pressures. Given their importance as sources of coral reef regeneration in a ‘climate stabilized world’, supporting the health of these resilient and connected reefs in the coming decades clearly deserves greater attention if we are to secure and replenish the world’s reefs as a whole.   The Coral Reef Rescue Partnership is a global initiative with governments, private sector, international NGOs, and civil society partners to sustain and restore the health of coral reef ecosystems in the face of climate threats. The Initiative is implemented by a partnership of organizations, including Blue Ventures, Rare, CARE International, The University of Queensland, WCS, and WWF, with extensive experience in delivering conservation in close collaboration with governments and local communities. The Global Coral Reef Rescue Initiative’s (CRRI) underlying theory of change is that if the most resilient coral reefs that host 70% of the global regeneration potential within the coastal waters of the 7 countries can be identified, and if the main local threats to these priority reefs can be reduced to secure reefs in the face of climate change and community and commercial use, then a foundation for global reef maintenance and recovery can be provided for the long term. The objective of the Coral Reef Rescue Partnership is to apply this approach to building reef productivity and resiliency around the world to protect resilient coral reefs with regeneration potential to globally secure reefs while ensuring co-benefits of biodiversity and livelihoods, with a target of safeguarding the food security and livelihoods of over 120 million reef-dependent people over the next decade.   A four year, GEF-funded (International Waters) project proposal (PIF) was approved by the GEF (Global Environment Facility) Council in December 2020. The project aims to build capacity and solutions to ensure the long term survival of climate resilient coral reef ecosystems, thereby supporting the blue economies and communities dependent on these reefs in Philippines, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Indonesia, Tanzania, and Philippines.   This GEF project has 4 key components: 1) Global knowledge and capacity building networks for resilient coral reefs; 2) Planning for resilient Coral Reef Rescue at the national level; 3) Financial solutions for resilient Coral Reef Rescue; and 4) Knowledge Management and Monitoring and evaluation.   The development of the global ProDoc is coordinated at international level by WWF US and WWF Australia. Efforts in developing this project will also serve at setting the foundations (specifically the needed national platform, and situation analysis) for further fundraising endeavors targeted towards GCF and more opportunities.   The detailed project design process is scheduled to be undertaken over the period January - November 2021. The development of the project document (ProDoc) and associated documents for the global GEF project “Coral Reef Rescue: Resilient Coral Reefs, Resilient Communities”, requires significant inputs and support from each of the 7 countries included in this initiative.   In the framework of development of this ProDoc, assessment made by WWF Philippines has concluded the need to use the service of a consultant to support the production of the Philippines inputs, while co-leading the related stakeholder consultations with WWF staff.  Upon agreement between both parties, the consultant may also provide his service for developing the information base required for an eventual GCF submission.

World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, seeks to hire a consultant to coordinate the data collection and proposal development for the African Nature-Based Tourism Collaborative Platform – A response to COVID-19.   The COVID-19 crisis has crippled economies and industries all over the world, and nature-based tourism (NBT) has been one of the leading economic casualties. For many eastern and southern African countries, this means a significant loss of funding for their conservation operations, local community livelihoods, and tourism enterprises. Emergency relief funds are available, however there exists an unequal distribution in the losses incurred by the African tourism industry, and difficulty in gaining access to available resources for those most in need, particularly marginalized rural communities and small and medium nature-based tourism enterprises (SMEs). From a funder perspective, there is poor coordination of information and funding opportunities, and weak alignment to real needs on the ground. In response, with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), an African Nature-Based Tourism Collaborative Platform is being developed to connect funders to the communities and small and medium enterprises most in need of funding support. Using a bottom-up approach, the platform will gather data on impacts to communities and SMEs from the COVID-19 crisis, enhance knowledge sharing between relevant actors, facilitate the development of funding proposals from communities and SMEs, and make these available to relevant donors. Learn more: https://www.worldwildlife.org/projects/african-nature-based-tourism-collaborative-platform-a-response-to-covid-19 https://wwfgef.org/gef/portfolios/collaborative-platform-for-african-nature-based-tourism-enterprises-conservation-areas-and-local-communities-a-response-to-covid-19/   Background and Context The first phase of the project will conduct surveys to further quantify and qualify the specific impacts of COVID-19 on women and men in local communities and SMEs, using a bottom-up approach. This will include gathering baseline information (identification, geographic area, land tenure, conservation contribution, ownership, employment, sources of revenue, financial information, etc. - sex-disaggregated where appropriate) as well as information on the impacts of COVID-19 (existing measures, current support, support needed by women and men, financial gap, etc.). The surveys will be administered via two methods, outreach to communities via CBNRM networks, and online surveys for SMEs. Data will also be collected from protected area authorities, helping to quantify the funding gap due to loss of tourism income. The data collected will be crucial to delivering the “matchmaking” between funders and recipients. This second phase of the project will be facilitated through sub-grants to the national level CBNRM networks to do outreach to target communities and assist with inclusive proposal development. Due to their increased accessibility, the SMEs meeting specific criteria will be invited to submit donor proposals or investment offerings to the Platform. Collaborative proposals from SMEs, particularly those in partnership with communities, will be prioritized. A small number of NGOs will receive sub-grants to assist with development of funding proposals for submission to the platform, assist with management capacity of funding recipients, and determine implementation and monitoring capacities.

Founded in 1961, WWF is a network of non-governmental environment organizations, with 6,500 staff operating in more than 100 countries, some six million members, and 22 million Facebook and 14 million Twitter followers worldwide. WWF’s efforts are grounded in its work with local communities, businesses and governments and other actors to conserve and restore nature and secure sustainable development for people in priority places around the world. We also work extensively with major private and public institutions to reduce the impacts of climate change, infrastructure projects, unsustainable food production, and consumption on nature and people. In 2016, WWF launched a new global strategy to help the nations, states, and cities of the world achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, Paris Climate Agreement, and Convention on Biological Diversity. WWF works through strong country programs, linked through global practices, to drive local innovation and large-scale solutions that seek to safeguard nature and nature’s contribution to people.   WWF-US, the largest organization within the WWF global network, works with partners across the United States and other countries to advance the WWF mission. WWF-US plays a pivotal role driving conservation and development action in the broader WWF network, collaborating closely with WWF offices around the world.   President and CEO Carter Roberts leads the Senior Management Team out of the WWF-US Washington, DC headquarters.    We conceptualize our work and achievements in two pillars: area-based conservation and whole-planet solutions. These pillars represent our commitment to secure some of the most critical places in the world while bolstering the services they provide to local communities—and at the same time addressing the systemic global threats to these landscapes and seascapes.     Area-based conservation is our approach to working in places. It puts people and nature as co-equal and ensures our programs balance conservation with economic growth, now and in the future.  We strive for conservation that is locally led, with WWF providing support as needed.   We take the long view, designing interventions to be financially sustainable, sufficiently managed, and climate smart. As a science- based organization, our approaches are rooted in discipline while also seeking to contribute to new scholarship.   Whole planet solutions are important because our work in specific places can’t be successful if we don't address some of the bigger challenges that threaten the planet as a whole. This pillar includes our approaches to drive solutions within global systems.    WWF-US Arctic Program WWF-US Arctic implements conservation programs in marine and coastal ecosystems in the Bering, Beaufort and Chukchi Seas, while also promoting smart governance at the national and international levels to bolster our conservation goals.  Now is a great time to join the WWF-US Arctic team.  We are growing and developing our next five-year strategy.     WWF has been active in Alaska and the broader Arctic region for more than 30 years.  In 1999, WWF-US opened an office in Anchorage.  Our team partners closely with indigenous communities, tribal and state governments, businesses, fishermen, scientists, universities and other conservation groups, and non-governmental, non-profit organizations.  Together WWF and its partners have accomplished a lot, including:   - Supported and replicated a community-led polar bear “patrol” program that protects polar bears and residents in coastal villages.  Now dozens of such patrols are working across the Russian and Alaskan Arctic.   - WWF partnered with Alaskan fishermen and University of Washington to take their innovative approach to reducing by-catch of seabirds and replicated this effort in Russia (reduced seabird bycatch +80%).   - Served as a key member of a coalition of NGOs, fishermen, community organizations, commercial fishing businesses and that succeeded in permanently withdrawing Bristol Bay from future offshore oil development. - Fostered US-Russia bi-lateral cooperation to support designation by the International Maritime Organization of a new shipping route and areas to be avoided by maritime vessels in the Bering Sea.    From the Anchorage, Alaska office, the US-Arctic team also cooperates with the entire WWF global Arctic team working especially closely with WWF Russia and WWF Canada.  The global Arctic priority species for WWF are polar bear, walrus, bowhead whale, beluga whale, narwhal.
