Job Opportunities UNDP Caspian Hyrcanian Forest Project in Chaloos

All applications should be directly sent to the Human Resources Unit of UNDP through email ID:  no later than 26 April 2014.  Please take note that the vacancy notice number must be referred to in your application and/or cover letter.  The TORs are attached to this message. 


Brief Description:
The project will conserve biodiversity in key landscapes within the Caspian broadleaf deciduous forest ecoregion. The ecoregion is recognised for its high levels of endemism; it is also an important storehouse of threatened species. It will do this by strengthening the national and local policy framework governing land use in the Caspian forests (which cover an area of approximately 1.8 million hectares), enhancing the rights and roles of the local communities in their management and demonstrating ways and means of improving management (including land use planning, zoning, compliance monitoring and enforcement).

The project will trigger a paradigm shift from sector-focused management to multiple use management, to reduce the conjunction pressures arising from different land uses.  It will put in place the necessary policy and regulatory mechanisms needed to mainstream biodiversity conservation considerations into land use plans and build the capacities of key institutions to implement the reformed planning and management approach. The project is thus consistent with GEF Strategic Objective 2 of GEF 5: Mainstream biodiversity conservation and sustainable use into production landscapes, seascapes and sectors and in particular Outcome 2.1: Increase in sustainably managed landscapes and seascapes that integrate biodiversity conservation. The successful implementation of this project will set the foundations for replication of the approach in other important forest ecosystems across the country.

The project will be responsible for achieving the following project objective: “To put in place a collaborative governance system and know-how for managing a mosaic of land uses in the Caspian Hyrcanian forest that provides habitat integrity and helps maintain landscape level ecosystem functions and resilience”. The proposed project is designed to lift the barriers to establishment of a landscape approach to the management of biodiversity. The project comprises three complementary Outcomes, which will be cost-shared by the GEF and co-financing:
•    Outcome 1.   An enabling policy and regulatory framework

•    Outcome 3.   Community piloting of integrated forest management

This will be achieved through accomplishment of a thorough review and suggestion of amendments of the national policy and regulatory frameworks in-line with requirements of the biodiversity conservation mainstreaming into forestry sector as well as other relevant sectoral entities.
