The Role

In Gabon, The Nature Conservancy is working collaboratively in support of the country’s ambitious biodiversity conservation and climate mitigation agenda. TNC works across freshwater, ocean and terrestrial ecosystems to protect and sustainable manage critical habitats for species, ecosystems, and carbon stocks. TNC brings science and innovative tools and approaches to inform better decision-making, develops innovative financial mechanisms for long-term sustainability, cultivates strategic partnership and fosters the needs for inclusive, equitable conservation that benefits nature and people.

The Director works closely with the Gabon Country Director, the Gabon PFP Team, the Gabon PFP Steering Committee and the Africa leadership team to advance progress across all elements of the PFP to ensure that this initiative delivers strong outcomes during the implementation period for biodiversity, climate and people. They play a key role in establishing strong external relationships with relevant stakeholders, main project partners, and team members, ensuring a strong buy-in for project objectives. They liaise with the PFP Steering Committee for the purpose of developing and closing the Gabon PFP initiative, and liaise with government agencies, other conservation organizations, foundations, communities and other stakeholders and rights holders. Reporting to the Gabon Country Director, the position will be based at the TNC office in Libreville – Gabon.
