Work location: Condor Kutuku landscape - Peru and Ecuador
Duration: 5 weeks (Estimated starting date: June 13 2022)
WWF Peru and WWF Ecuador are working together with Practical Action, NCI and Terra Nouva in the conformation a consortium towards participating in the Biodiverse Landscape Fund – BLF call, to be launched by the end of June 2022, focused on the Andes Amazon (Condor Kutuku) Landscape.
The BLF call will be focused in three outcomes: Nature, related to slow, halt or reverse biodiversity loss; People, aimed to develop economic opportunities through investment in nature; and Climate, targeted to reduce green house gas emissions.
Together with the consortium partners, WWF has defined a preparatory working plan for the next weeks, before the BLF call will be launched. The preparatory actions proposed by the consortium towards the application to the BLF call, include the analysis of available information of the landscape, the identification of actors and possible synergies, the identification of polygons within the Condor Kutuku landscape where the work will focus, both in Ecuador and Peru, among others.
The final step in this process concludes when we have clarity of the landscape situation and priorities to be considered by the consortium in the proposal. As well as the support of local and national actors.
Conduct a situation analysis for the Amazon Andes (Condor Kutuku) landscape, that meets the following specific objectives:
- Analyze and synthetize available information of the Condor Kutuku landscape, provided by the consortium partners as well as other sources: landscape socio economical description, governance structures, biodiversity characterization, threats and their drivers (including identification of potential governments extractive plans), land tenure, private sector developments (tourism, others), among others.
- Identify local and national actors as well as potential synergies, scope, potential role and participation in the proposal
- Support consortium partners in the socialization and positioning of the consortium with local actors and institutions in working areas.
- Interview key actors: recover updated information, identification of needs and interests, support partners in securing alliances with local actors, among other activities convened with the consortium partners.
- Analyze risks in the working area that could affect the development and implementation of the project.
- Prioritize working area. With the analysis of secondary and primary information, propose working areas (polygons) within the Condor Kutuku landscape to prioritize the consortium work to be detailed in the proposal. The prioritization must take into consideration the current working areas of the consortium partners.
