Communications Specialist


The Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) is an area of significant ecological importance harbouring globally important biodiversity. The GMS is one of the fastest growing regions in the world, with GDP growth in 2004 ranging from 5.8% in Cambodia to 8.8% in China. The loss of biodiversity is occurring as fast in the GMS as anywhere else in the world. Increasing development activities in the economic corridors are likely to negatively impact critical ecosystems and important areas for biodiversity conservation by fragmenting natural landscapes. A careful assessment of biodiversity-friendly economic development options is required to mitigate this potential.

In response to these issues, the goal of the Asia Regional Biodiversity Conservation Program (ARBCP) is to improve the sustainable management of natural resources and the conservation of biodiversity in Vietnam and the GMS. The program will develop a robust and sustainable pilot biodiversity corridor in the Dong Nai Watershed and some surrounding areas as a first step in developing a broader regional approach.

The pilot corridor in the Dong Nai Watershed will be managed to:

1. Restore and maintain ecosystem connectivity and function in biodiversity corridors and landscapes;

2. Promote sustainable financing for biodiversity and natural resource conservation;

3. Improve the livelihoods of the rural poor, including female stakeholders; and

4. Strengthen environmental governance and institution building.

ARBCP is a complicated multidisciplinary project involving activities ranging from household level income development to national conservation policy initiatives. The project is seeking an experienced communications professional to draft a range of concise communications pieces for various media and audiences which develop a coherent story out of the various activities, data and results the project has produced.

Additionally, the communications specialist will work with project staff to develop a communications strategy and 12 month workplan which identifies activities, resources and management systems necessary to achieve project objectives and targets.


The communications specialist will:

– Complete a range of documents for various audiences (e.g. community level, regional stakeholders, donor, general/mass media) which tell a cohesive story about the project and how its multidisciplinary approach supports biodiversity conservation 

– Work with project staff to develop a communications strategy which ensures consistency of message and delivery and which meets all programmatic targets 

– Work with project staff to develop a concrete workplan which details activities, deliverables, necessary resources and management systems to successfully implement the communications strategy 

– Complete a brief trip report which details activities undertaken and suggests follow-up actions


TBD ? I expect 10 days in country should be enough time to get the necessary background and work with the staff — additional time to complete documents will depend on the range and complexity of what we decide is needed.


This assignment will require some work in-country in Ho Chi Minh City with possible short trips to the field for background. It is expected that some work can be done from the specialist?s home as well.
