Looking for Consultant
The Universal Ranger Support Alliance (URSA) is a global alliance of eight conservation organisations; Fauna & Flora International (FFI), Force for Nature (FFN), Global Wildlife Conservation, (GWC), International Ranger Federation (IRF), IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas (IUCN-WCPA), Panthera, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) and WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society), established to help the International Ranger Federation (IRF) in delivering the needs identified in the Chitwan Declaration. The URSA five-year (2021-2025) Action Plan was officially launched in July 2021 at the World Conservation Congress and sets the direction for the Alliance to support the implementation of the Chitwan Declaration. The Action Plan is based on five elements (1. Advocacy & representation, 2. Capacity, employment & welfare, 3. Equality & equity in the ranger sector; 4. Community relations, 5. Ranger conduct and accountability). These are the requisite elements to build a demonstrably professional, accountable and competent ranger workforce, whose contributions are formally recognised and respected.
The URSA has produced a two-part report on “Building Trust with Rangers and Communities”. The document outlines issues of concern, discusses what is meant by the concept of trust, and provides an initial series of good practices illustrated by examples from the field. Given the success of the outreach on the stage 1 of the project that URSA is looking for consultant to deliver the stage 2 of the project that includes;
- Good practices: WCPA Good Practices (GPs) series with good IP&LC involvement and an associated outreach plan and funds for translation of the GPs into multiple languages.
- Training: Supporting training material for GPs to help generate uptake.
- Videos: Identify potential mechanism and platforms for GPs. Develop first set of GPs to be shared on these platforms.
