The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), acting as an implementing agency of the Global Environment Facility (GEF), has been requested by the Government of São Tomé e Principe (GoSTP) in the preparation of the GEF Full Size Project (FSP) “Enhancing Capacity for Biodiversity Conservation and Protected Area Management”. The vision of the project is to facilitate a transformative shift where biodiversity is seen as an asset, integrating species protection, sustainable forest and land management within the framework of livelihoods improvement to meet environmentally sustainable development goals.
A Project Preparation Grant (PPG) has been obtained to carry out the necessary analyses and prepare the full-fledge project proposal. In order to ensure the results of the project preparation works, UNDP is seeking an international specialist with demonstrable expertise in biodiversity conservation and protected area management for project development as PPG Team Leader to produce the project document along with a set of relevant evidence-based analysis for submission to the GEF in the last quarter of 2019. The PPG Implementation Plan and Project Identification Form (PIF) will be the basis for the developing the proposal.
