Parent Unit
Through its Asia Regional Office (ARO) in Bangkok and global programmes, IUCN, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, seeks to strengthen its capacity on protected and conserved areas (PCAs) in Asia in general and in Cambodia in particular.
The objective of this position is to supervise the design and delivery of IUCN’s programme in Cambodia, which has a strong focus on PCAs, water, and wetlands. IUCN’s PCA work includes leading the implementation of the IUCN Green List, the first global standard for PA management performance. Regionally, IUCN’s PCA work is led and coordinated by the IUCN Asia PCA Coordinator based in ARO.
A major project in Cambodia is providing technical assistance to IUCN State member Ministry of Environment on the GEF Cambodia Sustainable Landscapes and Ecotourism Project (CSLEP), and specifically drafting legislation to improve management of conservation-friendly businesses inside PAs. Cambodia is also part of IUCN’s global SDC Building River Dialogue and Governance (BRIDGE) initiative, which supports transboundary dialogue on water-feed-energy tradeoffs in the Mekong. In 2023, IUCN will start implementing the GEF International Waters Cambodia Mekong Delta Aquifer (CMDA) Project, which includes both Cambodia and Viet Nam.
The successful candidate will ensure that IUCN’s Cambodia program maintains its reputation for technical excellence and policy impact and will support the roll out of the IUCN Green List in Cambodia and across Asia with a focus on the five Lower Mekong countries.
