Responsibilities

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.

The UNEP Latin America and the Caribbean Office (LAC Office), located in Panama City, works closely with the 33 countries of the region and its activities are integrated into the Medium-Term Strategy and the Programme of Work approved by the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA).

The project Strengthening the Caribbean Biological Corridor (CBC) is framed within the Environmental governance sub-programme.

It seeks to build a strong and sustained collective, institutionalized regional approach to the conservation, management and governance of terrestrial and marine biodiversity in the Caribbean Islands hotspot, focusing initially on Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, with a progressive and well-structured expansion to other countries and territories.

It will build and demonstrate significant positive linkages between conservation, connectivity, livelihoods and poverty reduction through selected field activities and a targeted communication programme.

It will deliver a sustainable and integrated knowledge management system on biodiversity and biological connectivity, joint and harmonized policies and instruments, adequate and compatible capacity among participating countries and institutions, as well as sustained cooperation mechanisms between countries and institutions at political, scientific, technical and civil society levels.

Selected field actions in this project will help raise awareness of the CBC, while alliances with programmes and stakeholders engaged in broader field actions will support achievement of the objectives of the CBC.

The specialist will provide a final evaluation of the Strengthening the Caribbean Biological Corridor project, as mandated by the donor, the European Union.

This evaluation will provide an assessment of the performance and implementation of project activities as described in the agreement and project document with the donor.

The consultant will be under direct supervision of the Environmental Governance Regional Coordinator at the UNEP Latin America and the Caribbean Office, and will work from home.
