Overview :

This proposed project has received a Project Preparation Grant (PPG) to prepare a Full-Sized Project (FSP) document, based on the approved project proposal concept (PIF). The project focusses on Human-Wildlife Conflict (HWC) related to the Transfrontier Conservation Areas (TFCAs) of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) with the elephant as the target species. Although the project is fully funded by the South
Africa GEF 7 STAR allocation, it includes activities to be done at regional level for the SADC, namely Angola, Botswana, DRC, Eswatini, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe. The Objective of the Project is to create an enabling environment and evidence-based approach on mitigating the effects of human-wildlife conflict in the SADC region. The approved concept has
three components, namely:
➢ Component 1: Strengthening the Management of Elephants in South Africa
➢ Component 2: Reduced Human Wildlife Conflict (HWC) in South Africa
➢ Component 3: Harmonized and coordinated management of elephants and HWC in SADC region
The PPG phase is considered as a preparatory phase and its final output will be a UNEP /GEF project document and GEF CEO Endorsement Request submitted to and approved by UNEP and GEF, with all required supporting information. UNEP is, therefore, seeking the services of a consultant to provide required information pertaining to gender and social safeguards, to be used in development of the project document and CEO
endorsement request.
