National Project Manager at REDD+
The REDD+ project has vacancy for a National Project Manager, under Service Contract modality. The Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) is a mechanism to create incentives to protect, better manage and wisely use forest resources. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MNRE), with the support of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will now implement a 1.5 year project titled 'National REDD+ Readiness in Malaysia'. The project aims to develop a national framework to include the policy, legal and institutional components for REDD+, to explore and provide recommendations on sustainable funding mechanism for REDD+ implementation, as well as improve capacity and stakeholder participation in REDD+ management.
The project will facilitate effective and coordinated implementation of REDD+ processes and activities to contribute to an overall sustainable development and the climate change agenda. Through this project, the development of a climate resilient growth strategy will be strengthened, and enhance conservation of the nation's ecological assets, identified as one of the strategies in the 10th Malaysia Plan as strategies under the NP 4.4 (the Natural Resource, Energy and Environment Programme). The National REDD+ Framework will lay out the foundation on how to better integrate principles of sustainable development into country policies and programmes, and therefore reverse the loss of environmental resources (MDG 7). Interested candidates can refer to the TOR and apply online at UNDP Vacancy. Closing date is 10 December 2011.
