|Overview : |
UNDP, wishes to engage services of an international consultant to provide international technical support for project implementation. The IPA will monitor and support the implementation of all project components, by means of visits during consultancy period April 2016 - December 2018 to Tehran, Chalus and to the project sites. This in-country support will be supplemented by periodic home-based support, which will include responding to technical queries, commenting on technical reports, etc.
The project will conserve biodiversity in key landscapes within the Caspian broadleaf deciduous forest ecoregion. The ecoregion is recognised for its high levels of endemism; it is also an important storehouse of threatened species. It will do this by strengthening the national and local policy framework governing land use in the Caspian forests (which cover an area of approximately 1.8 million hectares), enhancing the rights and roles of the local communities in their management and demonstrating ways and means of improving management (including land use planning, zoning, compliance monitoring and enforcement). please see TOR
