Wildlife Trade Technical Advisor, WWF-Greater Mekong

The Greater Mekong (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam) is one of the global hubs of wildlife trade – a perfect storm of a source, transit route, and final destination for many of the world’s most valuable and threatened wildlife products. Trade routes through, and demand originating from, the Mekong countries threaten the persistence of some of the planet’s most charismatic species including tiger, Asian and African elephants, and all rhino species. Co-ordinated inter-governmental action is therefore required to leverage global commitments for cracking wildlife trade into effective action on the ground across the Greater Mekong. The Hanoi Conference on Wildlife Trade planned for November 2016, and part of the inter-governmental process initiated at the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade, provides an opportunity to leverage regional governmental commitments to effectively act against wildlife trafficking in the region.
 
WWF is seeking an experienced Wildlife Trade Technical Advisor who will lead and co-ordinate our advocacy and political efforts around, and beyond, the Hanoi Conference to galvanise regional governmental action focussing on closing some of the most insidious wildlife markets left on the planet.
 
Base location: Yangon, Vientiane or Hanoi
Key requirements:
  • Degree in conservation, environmental policy, or relevant fields
  • At least 5 years experience in environmental advocacy, policy, and/or political campaigning related to natural resource management
  • Knowledge of wildlife trafficking and trade issues ideally in Asia
  • Understanding of political and environmental context in China, Laos, or Myanmar ideal
  • Experience of advocacy and negotiating with Government and donors at all levels
  • Proven track record in successfully managing inter-institutional relations involving government and international NGOs
  • Excellent understanding of development partnerships, fund-raising, donor strategies, functions and international relations
