Two New Open Consultancies: Copy-editor and Designer (Deadline 30 June 2021)

12 June 2021

The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) programme aims to assist the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries in developing a framework for improving technical and institutional approaches to conserve biodiversity, particularly in protected areas, through regional cooperation and capacity building activities. BIOPAMA is jointly implemented by the IUCN and the European Union’s (EU) Joint Research Centre (JRC). One key threat to biodiversity and protected areas across the region is the illegal wildlife trade and BIOPAMA is supporting efforts to address this threat.

There is growing recognition that engaging local communities as partners in combatting illegal wildlife trade (IWT) is critical but difficult to operationalise in a meaningful and sustainable manner. In a meaningful effort to address this, the International Institute for International Development (IIED), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the IUCN Commission on Environmental, Economic and Social Policy (CEESP) – SSC Sustainable Use and Livelihoods Specialist Group, and the IUCN-SSC African Elephant Specialist Group formed a partnership to develop a new initiative called: Local Communities: First Line of Defence against Illegal Wildlife Trade (FLoD). In July 2019 the FLoD partners, through the BIOPAMA programme, appointed the Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC) to develop an Implementer’s Guide to FLoD and supporting lesson plans for the FLoD methodology.

These two documents have now been completed and now, a copy-editor and a designer is required to prepare them for publication. The copy-editor will be engaged to provide the final cohesive text of the publications while the designer will be engaged to provide the layout and design of the publication.

Both consultancies will collaborate to finalise these documents.

Please send your quotations to us by 30 June 2021. Contracting is expected to be concluded by the 6 July 2021 with and inception call in the same week and work beginning in the week of 12 July 2021.
