Call for National/ International Consultant for National Conservation Strategy Development - IUCN Nepal

Call for National/ International Consultant for National Conservation Strategy Development

20 Dec 2011

In the World Conservation Congress (WCC) held in early1980s, the world leaders passed a resolution that each IUCN Member nation should develop a strategy related to sustainable use of their country’s natural resources. As an IUCN Member, Nepal government had ratified this resolution and with support from IUCN, prepared a National Conservation Strategy in 1988. The Document was well received by concerned stakeholders involved in nature conservation work at national, local and international levels. However, national and international contexts, in which the 1988 Strategy was developed has now changed and there is a need to revisit this Strategy.

The National Planning Commission of Nepal, with support from IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) has taken an initiative to revisit the 1988 Strategy. The objective of this initiative is to develop a revised or new National Conservation Strategy which reflects the changed contexts and one that ensures that nature conservation is an integral part of all national development policies, strategies and programs. NCS thus formulated is expected to be a guiding document for all conservation policies and practices in Nepal.

We seek to engage an experienced Consultant (national/ international) to assist in developing (writing and producing) the Strategy and work closely with members of the Steering and Technical Committees and coordinate and guide the work of consultants responsible for preparing background papers and other information relevant to the revised/new Strategy.

IUCN is an equal opportunity employer; qualified women and members of ethnic minorities or disadvantaged groups are encouraged to apply. Only short listed candidates will be notified.
