About Enduring Earth
Enduring Earth is an ambitious partnership between the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), and ZOMALAB’s Global Permanence Fund 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.
Project Finance for Permanence has been used to protect more than 90M hectares of critical ecosystems. Examples of PFP deals include:
- Great Bear Rainforest: Where a PFP protected 8M hectares of old growth forest in British Columbia, helping to end the timber wars in Canada
- Costa Rica: Where a PFP enabled the country to become the first developing nation to meet its 30% protected area goals; and
- Bhutan: Where a PFP helped put more than 50% of the entire nation under permanent conservation protection
To date, a pipeline of 30+ new projects has been identified that will yield large scale protection of nature, strong benefits for people, and measurable climate impacts. These include creating new national parks in Chilean Patagonia; expanding marine protected areas in Belize; supporting community conservancy models in Namibia and Kenya; and creating Indigenous protected areas that return management rights to traditional owners in Colombia.
You’ll join a top-notch team and innovative partnership committed to community economic development and the durable protection of millions of hectares of land and ocean. The Project Manager will work within technical PFP assessment and planning teams, responsible for internal organization, driving accountability and best practices, and managing the timeline toward the closing of large-scale conservation agreements. The Project Manager will report to the Global Portfolio Lead and is generally accountable to the Team Lead of each PFP project, may also be asked to provide ad-hoc technical or administrative support necessary to ensure the success of the projects.

The Project seeks to support regional collaboration for integrated ridge to reef management of the MAR ecoregion by demonstrating its advantages and improving regional, national, and local capacities for integrated management and governance of its freshwater, coastal, and marine resources. The project has four interrelated components designed to scale up existing baseline programs to address key threats and barriers to the integrated management and conservation of the MAR:
- Strengthen resource governance and regional collaboration for integrated ridge to reef management;
- Integrated ridge to reef management of watersheds and freshwater resources;
- Integrated ridge to reef management of coastal and marine resources; and
- Project monitoring and evaluation, and knowledge sharing.
See the WWF GEF project website for additional details and project documents.
SCOPE AND Objectives for the evaluation
WWF is seeking an independent consultant to undertake a Terminal Evaluation of the Project. The scope of the TE will cover the GEF financed components.
The objectives of this evaluation are to examine the extent, magnitude and sustainability of any project impacts to date; identify concerns as well as best practices; assess progress towards project outcomes and outputs; and draw lessons learned that can both improve the sustainability of benefits from this project and aid in the enhancement of future related projects. The evaluator is expected to frame the evaluation effort using the seven (7) core criteria of relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, results/impact, sustainability and adaptive capacity. Particular emphasis will be placed on effectiveness, efficiency, results/impact and sustainability.

Context and Background
The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has embarked on ambitious, field-based conservation programs across the Congo Basin. In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), WWF is active in several landscape-scale sites, including the over 10 million ha Salonga landscape, encompassing Salonga National Park (SNP), the third largest tropical forest park in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and a critical refuge for bonobos and forest elephants. The landscape program also works in peripheral community area. In addition to its importance for biodiversity conservation, this humid forest region is significant for carbon storage and maintaining water supplies. The program takes an integrated conservation approach with a consortium of NGO, government, community, and academic partners. Key conservation strategies include: protected area management; land use planning; law enforcement and species conservation; community-based natural resources management and livelihood improvement, e.g. through sustainable agriculture and forestry.
Effective protected area management is a corner stone of WWF’s conservation efforts in the DRC, in close partnership with ICCN (Institut Congolais pour la Conservation de la Nature), the national protected area management authority. New, creative perspectives are needed to effectively manage protected areas in challenging social, economic, cultural, and logistical environments. WWF and ICCN have agreed to implement an innovative form of Public Private Partnership management approach in forms of co-management to professionalise the management of the park while also improving the life standards of communities living in the landscape.
