ECODIT seeks qualified Chief of Party (COP) candidates for the anticipated USAID/ Cambodia Somros Baitang Activity. USAID Cambodia seeks to conserve biodiversity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from land use change. The domestic and international illegal wildlife trade is widespread as Cambodia remains a source and transit point for wildlife and wildlife parts. Deforestation and land use change continue at an alarming rate especially in areas of remaining primary forest. The new Somros Baitang activity will reduce key threats to biodiversity, forests and sustainable natural resource management through improving livelihoods, reducing human wildlife conflict and the consumption of bushmeat, and considering generation of blue carbon credits.

The COP will oversee all strategic, technical, and operational aspects for the Activity, and will act as the main point of contact between USAID, ECODIT, and partner organizations. The COP will be critical to ensuring timely communication and collaboration on a range of complex tasks, and ensuring timely and accurate submission of high-quality deliverables that respond to USAID’s priorities and expectations.

  • Manage partners and subcontractors to implement the Activity work plans;
  • Supervise a team of long-term personnel and short-term consultants and provide leadership in staff mentorship and professional development; and
