Fonctions et responsabilités
United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. Its mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action. UNEP’s Ecosystems Division engages with governments and other partners to develop and promote ecosystem-based solutions for sustainable development. This position is in Biodiversity and Land Branch.
The Wild Biodiversity Economy (WBDE) initiative intends to strengthen the sustainable use practices of land and species as a competitive livelihood and development strategy to meet people’s needs, whilst also reducing biodiversity loss.
The project focuses on knowledge creation and advocacy for the creating of sustainable, inclusive and nature-based economic opportunities through the WBDE. Building on existing data, partnerships will be mobilised to further strengthen the incorporation of WBDE elements into integrated policies and the scaling up of context appropriate WBDE best practices within and across regions. This project will communicate and expand the uptake of viable and attractive WBDE approaches in targeted regions to support the conservation, restoration, and sustainable use of biodiversity in a manner that it delivers socio-economic development to countries and, in particular those communities that are the stewards of biodiverse lands. This initiative is currently under the project preparation phase.

- Provide an overview of the policy, regulatory and legal framework governing the WBDE, incorporating insightful case studies from selected countries.
- Identify country-specific gaps pertaining to various types of WBDE activities and practices, as relevant.
- Identify opportunities to promote the update of the WBDE in the region.
- Highlight good practices with relevance to the selected region, incorporating case studies and lessons learned.
