Short-term consultancy- Chief Rapporteur- IUCN World Conservation Congress 2020 Forum
IUCN is seeking a highly qualified Chief Rapporteur to oversee the reporting of the Forum segment of the IUCN Congress (8 – 11 January 2021), and to consolidate a summary report for delivery to the Members’ Assembly (12 – 15 January 2021).
Proposals must be submitted by Friday 31 July 2020 at Midnight (12:00 AM) GMT +1. Proposals submitted after this deadline will not be considered.
The IUCN Congress in Marseille, France will take place from 7 to 15 January 2021, a few months before the UN Convention on Biological Diversity COP15, where governments will set biodiversity policy and targets for the coming decades. The messages, decisions and other outcomes of the Congress will frame the debate going into that important event. Nature also can provide 30% of the solution to addressing climate change, but too few countries are using it to its potential. The Congress will represent a decisive step in how the world rewrites its relationship with nature for decades to come, and contribute to achieving an ambitious agreement at the Conference of the Parties of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity.
