The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) – the largest conservation and education advocacy organization in the United States – is requesting proposals for a contractor for one year, for a service contract to provide technical support, country expertise, corporate and government outreach in Ivory Coast and in Europe for a project fostering transparent monitoring of forests and cocoa supply chains in Ivory Coast. This work is part of an Internationale Klimaschutzinitiative (IKI) supported collaborative project focusing on transparent forest monitoring that can help improve monitoring and reporting to the UNFCCC.

Location: Flexible, travel to Ivory Coast, ability to attend virtual meetings during European working hours.


The Contractor will provide technical support, coordination, report writing, outreach to the public and private sector and will organize and host workshops, on a project aiming to encourage transparent forest monitoring and traceable deforestation-free cocoa supply chains in Ivory Coast. The goal is to help Ivory Coast to report effectively to the UNFCCC and serve as an example of transparent forest monitoring, and to ensure that the Ivorian cocoa sector can meet international demands (through voluntary processes and importing country pending regulatory efforts) for deforestation-free cocoa supply chains.
