ENGAGEMENT TERM: March 2023 - February 2025 (2 years)

REPORTS TO: Climate Change Energy Head, Project Coordinator, Director of Conservation Programs

WORK WITH: Technical Consultant (GIS/Infra and NbS), WWF PH GIS unit, WWF US, WWF-US national and subnational consultants (SPRING), NGAs (NEDA), CARAGA LGUs, and stakeholders


As countries design their post-COVID recovery plans, there is a unique opportunity to help them orient their investments into infrastructure projects that are consistent with long-term climate targets while supporting economic growth and job creation in the short term. More than 60% of global GHG emissions are embedded in existing infrastructure systems. The infrastructure built in the next five years, particularly in fast-growing Asia, will determine not just GHG trajectories for decades to come, but our ability to adapt and build resilience to the impacts already underway and, consequently, our collective ability to achieve long-term climate and biodiversity goals.

This consultancy is in support of WWF's objectives under the larger project, Sustainable Infrastructure in Asia Program (SIPA), led by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and in cooperation with multiple partners to support countries in Central and Southeast Asia in meeting their objectives under the Paris Agreement through sustainable infrastructure planning and development. WWF contributes to the specific objective of "improving capacity in the target regions for upstream strategic infrastructure planning to ensure that investment projects are situated within broader long-term sustainable development pathways (incorporating low-carbon transition and climate resilience goals)." WWF is working collaboratively with government partners and key stakeholders through WWF country offices in Indonesia and the Philippines to identify areas of natural capital and the ecosystem benefits they contribute to climate resilience for communities and infrastructure: for example, forests that reduce flooding or prevent soil erosion, wetlands that absorb floodwaters, or coastal mangroves that provide protection against extreme storms, also known as nature-based solutions (NbS).

For the Philippines, to promote the SIPA project and to further increase awareness and understanding of the use of NbS, the production of a set of multimedia products will be undertaken. This engagement will include a professional video documentation of the project's activities and interactions with key stakeholders for broadcast and distribution (in an agreed format), with a small print manual which summarizes highlights of the video and a series of short video capsules of 5-7 minutes each. Still photographs of professional quality made throughout the filming shall be made available for use by WWF for publications in annual reports, brochures, etc., and social media. This task shall be achieved through effective coordination and collaboration with the project staff, relevant WWF staff, and relevant partners and stakeholders. The work will be coordinated to the best extent possible with other sustainability projects currently planned or under implementation in WWF Philippines and within the region.


Under the SIPA Project, the duties and responsibilities of the Video documenter shall cover the following:

  • Develop video documentary's overall concept and scenario based on project inputs.
