EASTERN & SOUTHERN AFRICA, WESTERN & CENTRAL AFRICA

IUCN published a request for proposals for a communication and visibility consultancy in Western, Central, Eastern and Southern Africa.

The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) programme aims to contribute to improving the long-term conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, in protected areas and surrounding communities. It is an initiative of the ACP Group of States financed by the European Union’s 11th European Development Fund (EDF), jointly implemented by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC). Building on the first five years of activities financed by the 10th EDF, BIOPAMA’s second phase provides tools for data and information management, services for improving the knowledge and capacity for protected area planning and decision making, and funding opportunities for specific site-based actions.

BIOPAMA has developed a global communication plan to integrate internal communication in the large ACP, multi-actors team and external communication with BIOPAMA partners and to promote knowledge and learning from the programme’s outputs. IUCN in West and Central Africa (WCA) and Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) is looking for a consultant to adapt the global communication plan to the region’s specificities, develop and establish a regional communication plan and a mechanism to promote knowledge management and dissemination of messages and results.

The consultancy is technically and administratively managed by IUCN’s regional office in West and Central Africa (WCA) and in Eastern and Southern Africa (ESA) with the coordination support of BIOPAMA’s global communication coordinator.

Interested parties are invited to submit a full proposal no later than 3 November 2019 at 11:59 PM GMT.

The details of the consultancy are available at this link.
