Jobs in Myanmar, jobs in Yangon - NGO, Charity & Voluntary jobs - Renewable Energy Technical Advisor (Re-announced)

Company: World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF Myanmar)
Company description:

To stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by: conserving the world's biological diversity; ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable; and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

With three of the most pristine large rivers and some of the most extensive intact forest in the region, Myanmar is one of the most biologically diverse and ecologically productive nations on Earth.

Living resources vital to human wellbeing – forests, fisheries, freshwater systems, fertile soils, coastal and marine ecosystems – the country’s natural capital, are the foundation of Myanmar’s long-term sustainable economic development. Myanmar has witnessed its neighbours over-exploit their natural capital, creating precariously fragmented ecosystems unable to support sustainable economic growth over the medium and long term.

But as Myanmar opens up politically and economically, it’s feeling many of the same pressures faced by the rest of the Greater Mekong, from deforestation to illegal wildlife trade.

WWF IN MYANMAR

The government and civil society organizations of Myanmar are now seeking partnerships and state-of-the-art guidance on how to best manage their natural capital, preserving the country’s globally important biodiversity for the near and long-term health and prosperity of the women and men of this vast and diverse nation.

WWF’s aim is to support Myanmar’s development ambitions with a focus on spatial planning and biodiversity conservation in parallel with ecosystem services protection and sustainable livelihoods.

Our aim is to support Myanmar’s development ambitions with a focus on spatial planning, biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services, and livelihoods.
