|Overview : |
The Government of South Africa has acquired funds from the GEF through UNEP for a project titled: “Reducing Human Wildlife Conflict through an Evidence-based and Integrated Approach in Southern Africa”.
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 approved concept has 3 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 national consultant to provide required information for Components 1 and 2, to be used in development of the project document and CEO endorsement request.
