We are seeking an organised, proactive and adaptable individual to join our growing Business and Biodiversity Programme as a Programme
Officer. This role will work in close collaboration with other programmes at UNEP-WCMC to implement projects supporting improved biodiversity management by the private sector, with a focus on commodity trade and supply chains.
Our team’s focus is on strengthening the role of natural capital in private sector decision making. We work to change the business case for biodiversity management; deliver the knowledge, data, tools and approaches for mitigating impacts and restoring biodiversity; and ensure businesses and their influencers have the capacity to act. Our team works with partners around the world driving novel developments to enable assessments risks and materiality associated with a loss of natural capital and biodiversity.
This role responds to the need for greater application of this knowledge to understand and quantify the embodied impacts of trade and the associated supply chain risks. This role will provide you with the opportunity to work on high impact projects, supporting action by companies, governments and the finance community to address the impacts and dependencies of commodity supply chains on nature. Working with businesses, scientists and other stakeholders, you will support the development of tools and approaches and help build partnerships to integrate nature into private sector decision making.
