Consultancy: Oceania State of Protected and Conserved Areas Report

23 September 2019

The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Programme (BIOPAMA) aims to assist countries in Africa, the Caribbean and the Pacific (ACP) to improve the long-term conservation and sustainable use of natural resources, including through developing knowledge products that underpin evidence-based decision making. In support of this, BIOPAMA will produce an Oceania State of Protected and Conserved Areas (SoPACA) report.

This will outline progress made toward achieving protected area targets and include up-to-date information on protected area coverage, representativeness, connectivity, governance and management effectiveness. The report will also review protected area issues relevant to the region, including sustainable financing and management capacity, and provide recommendations for strengthening the efficacy of protected and conserved areas in the region.

IUCN is seeking the services of a suitably qualified and experienced consultant to (i) prepare the management effectiveness chapter; and (ii) provide technical editing for the entire report. The goal of this work is to produce a credible and professional output that meets IUCN’s publication standards.

Proposals for this consultancy should be sent to Paul van Nimwegen ( by no later than midnight (GMT+12) on 6 October 2019. Work is expected to commence soon thereafter.

All the details are available in this consultancy offer.
