The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) is a US-based conservation organization registered as a non-profit, tax-exempt voluntary organization and has been dedicated to conserving the earth’s biodiversity since its establishment in 1895. Their efforts are concentrated in many of the world’s developing countries where biological diversity is greatest and pressure on nature is most intense. WCS currently works in more than 60 countries in Africa, Asia, and North and Latin America and has special institutional capacity in the following thematic areas: strengthening institutional capacity, biodiversity conservation, natural resource management, policy development, protected area establishment and management, landscape conservation, and socio-economic strategies for conservation.

The Wildlife Conservation Society’s program in Vietnam addresses the critical conservation issue of illegal hunting and trade in wildlife. Vietnam is both a major consumer of wildlife, and also a transit country whereby wildlife is imported from other countries to its west and south, and re-exported. Hence, it is an extremely important link in the trade chain for illegal wildlife.

We carry out research to provide reliable data on the scale, organization and dynamics of the wildlife trade in Vietnam, and work closely with the government to strengthen wildlife crime law enforcement in Vietnam, and through our partnerships with other National organizations aim to build political momentum within Vietnam to take wildlife crime seriously.

WCS are preparing to initiate a new project that will implement interventions with government agencies in key border provinces in Vietnam to strengthen law enforcement and build political support to significantly reduce the illegal cross-border traffic of protected wildlife.

Scope of work:

The Project Coordinator (PC) will co-ordinate WCS’s project addressing the illegal cross-border trade of wildlife from Vietnam to China. The PC will be responsible to design, implement and monitor activities, budgets, and staff working with the project to meet the expected outcomes.

Main responsibilities:

• Manage the implementation of the Project to ensure outcomes are achieved, including quality control, ensuring equity, financial planning and management, and monitoring and evaluation
• Development, implementation and monitoring of project activities to strengthen law enforcement of the illegal cross-border trade of wildlife. This will include but not be restricted to training programs in professional law enforcement techniques for wildlife crime investigations for key agencies; Joint-meetings of enforcement agencies held to strengthen inter-agency co-operation at a provincial level; investigations into the scale and dynamics of illegal cross-border wildlife trade; briefings with key provincial and national government departments to garner their support for increased effort to prosecuting wildlife criminals operating in border provinces; and bi-lateral meetings between Vietnam and other countries to strengthen international co-operation mechanisms for controlling the illegal wildlife trade.
