Description

The Convention on Wetlands is an intergovernmental treaty that provides the framework for national action and international cooperation for the conservation and sustainable use of wetland biodiversity and services. It was the first of the modern global multilateral environmental agreements and remains the only one devoted to a specific critical ecosystem. The Secretariat of the Convention on Wetlands has its headquarters in Gland, Switzerland where the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), provides some administrative services to the Convention’s Secretariat for the operations and implementation of the Convention.

The Secretariat provides technical and policy advice to the Contracting Parties to the Convention in the implementation of the Strategic Plan 2016-2024. The Insular Caribbean is one of the most vulnerable regions in the world with respect to exposure to the effects of climate change and to natural hazards. To support Contracting Parties to improve the conservation and wise use of Caribbean wetlands the project “Wise Use of Caribbean Wetlands for Climate Change Mitigation and Conservation of their Ecosystem Services” will be implemented to strengthen Caribbean countries’ resilience and adaptability to climate change. The project involves the assessment of ecosystem services and the vulnerability of Ramsar Sites to climate change and their subsequent monitoring and capacity building of all major stakeholders on the values of coastal wetlands.

Under the supervision of the project coordinator, the technical officer will support the components on climate change, ecosystem services and the effectiveness of management of Ramsar Sites.
