Overview :

The Government of South Africa has acquired funds from the GEF through UNEP for a project titled: “Capacity strengthening for management of invasive alien species in South Africa to enhance sustainable biodiversity conservation and livelihoods improvement”.

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) which has four components namely:

  • Component 1. Strengthened IAS detection and surveillance capacities at key national ports of entry.
  • Component 2. Enhanced biosecurity communications and information flows
  • component 3. Improved effectiveness of control measures for high risk IAS


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. The government of South Africa through UNEP is, therefore, seeking the services of a national consultant to providing required information for Component 2 on enhancing biosecurity communications and information flows, to be used in development of the project document and CEO endorsement request.
