BIOPAMA calls for a consultant to conduct a review of the African Natural Heritage.

The key role of the consultant will be to develop, as agreed with the project team, the African Natural Heritage Review. This will include writing and editing the report, revising the report as necessary after review, and delivering a quality product that is ready for translation, printing and shipping within a relatively short time-frame.

The African Natural Heritage Review will provide a highly accessible, short and simple synthesis of key World Heritage information:

  • What is the World Heritage Convention and how does it work?
  • How can World Heritage status benefit people and nature?
  • What are the existing natural and mixed World Heritage sites in Africa?
  • What are some of the possible priorities for new World Heritage sites?
  • Why and how should countries prepare new World Heritage nominations?

The consultant will work in close collaboration with the BIOPAMA Regional Coordinators for Eastern and Southern Africa and West and Central Africa, the IUCN World Heritage Science Adviser, the IUCN World Heritage Monitoring Officer and other contacts as agreed, to carry out of this work.

The consultancy shall be conducted over a period of 5 months (up to a maximum of 20 days), starting 17th June 2019.

Expressions of interest, including a complete proposal, must be sent to Sue Snyman (sue.snyman@iucn.org) by 26th May 2019.

All the information about this consultancy is available in this document.
