The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) Programme contributes to improving the long-term conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and natural resources in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific regions in protected areas and surrounding communities through the provision of a variety of tools, services, capacity development and funding to support conservation stakeholders. BIOPAMA implements a 21 million Euro grant-making facility named BIOPAMA Action Component – financed by the European Union’s 11th European Development Fund. The funding is addressing priorities for action, supporting activities on the ground for strengthening the management effectiveness and governance of protected and conserved areas. By adopting a landscape approach, these actions also contribute to enhancing the local livelihoods through sustainable use of the natural resources and ecosystem services, as well as increasing the resilience to the impacts of climate change. The implementation of the Action Component is one of the major deliverables of the BIOPAMA Programme, together with the consolidation of the Regional Observatories for protected areas and biodiversity and their Reference Information Systems (RIS). The BIOPAMA Regional Observatories and the RIS provide valuable information, knowledge and data on the protected and conserved areas in the ACP countries, which have a key role in highlighting where actions on the ground are needed. As part of the deliverables of BIOPAMA AC, the consultant will develop and deliver a distance learning training course for the BIOPAMA’s current network of grantees in ESARO. The training will equip participants with the knowledge and tools to integrate natural capital approaches and economic incentives into their work, thereby contributing to BIOPAMA’s vision of improving the management effectiveness of the protected areas in the region.
