Chief of Party - Combatting Wildlife Crime in Southern Africa


WWF, the world's leading conservation organization, seeks a Chief of Party candidate for the anticipated USAID-funded Combatting Wildlife Crime in KAZA and Namibia Project (CWCP/KAZA and Namibia). This position will be based in Windhoek, Namibia. The CWCP seeks to counter growing threats from transnational wildlife crime to globally important populations of black rhino and elephant in northwest Namibia and the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA), respectively. WWF will partner with TRAFFIC, Namibian NGOs, KAZA stakeholders, and key government agencies to neutralize these threats by improving: knowledge of wildlife crime and trade dynamics; community stewardship; community-based support to law enforcement (LE); capacity-building of rangers inside and outside protected areas (PA); and enhanced judicial processes, wildlife crime investigations and prosecutions, and inter-agency cross border collaboration. Central to this process will be the creation of a multi-agency approach to share knowledge and information on wildlife crime within Namibia and among the KAZA countries of Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The collective impact of this Project will be an increase of rhino populations in Namibia and promotion of cross-border movement and stabilized elephant populations in KAZA
WWF Namibia, as the Consortium lead, will guide and coordinate the KAZA and Namibia components of this Project. The Consortium partners for the KAZA component are WWF (Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe), TRAFFIC, IRDNC, Eco-Exist, KAZA Secretariat, and IUCN, while a partner organization for Angola will be identified. For the Namibia component they are WWF Namibia, IRDNC, LAC, NNDFN, NNF, SRT, NACSO, MET, and TRAFFIC.
