Phnom Penh/ Kratie, Cambodia
Want to make a positive difference to the future of people and our one shared home, the Earth? Working at WWF could be your opportunity of a lifetime.
All around the world, people are waking up to the deepening crisis of nature loss. A growing realization that nature is our life-support system. And that nobody will be spared from the impacts of its loss. Here at WWF, we are helping to tackle this enormous global challenge.

What we do
We are an independent conservation organization, striving to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife. From individuals and communities to business and government, we are part of a growing coalition calling on world leaders to set nature on the path to recovery by 2030. Together, we seek to protect and restore natural habitats, stop the mass extinction of wildlife, and make the way we produce and consume sustainable.
WWF-Cambodia works to conserve the region’s biodiversity and build a secure and sustainable future for people and wildlife. WWF-Cambodia works on the ground and in partnership with Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.
WWF-Cambodia is working with local communities, the Royal Government of Cambodia at all levels, private sector, NGOs and many other conservation partners to protect biodiversity and natural resources in the Eastern Plains Landscape (EPL) and the Mekong Flooded Forests Landscape (MFF), globally recognised as home to many globally endangered species.

Under the Partnership for Forestry and Fisheries (PaFF) Program in phase 3, the agroforestry development is part of the program interventions due to its potential to support the development of the community forestry including improving the community’s livelihoods while improving the forest quality. The agroforestry is also one of key potential activities in the community forestry management plan. In collaboration with the Forestry Administration, local FAs, Provincial Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (PDAFF), Provincial Department of Environment, and local authorities in Kratie province, WWF-Cambodia conducted the feasibility study on the potential of the agroforestry development in the target community forestry (CF) in Kratie province and as a result, the five CFs have potential to implement the agroforestry activities. The proposed models have been consulted and agreed with the community forestry and the stakeholders.

We are seeking qualified consultant to provide technical services on the agroforestry development to the five CFs in Kratie province to assist the CF members with technical knowledge on the agroforestry development in each CF. The consultancy service is expected to be carried out the consultancy service from 03rd June 2022 to 30th March 2023 including the periodic follow up support to the CFs and documentation.
