Duties and Responsibilities
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment. Its mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action. The UNEP Latin America and the Caribbean Office (LACO), located in Panama City, Panama, works closely with the 33 countries of the region and its activities are integrated into the Medium-Term Strategy and the Programme of Work approved by the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA). UNEP LACO oversees the implementation of several UNEP’s projects in the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. In this region, these projects are implemented by partners at national level in several countries, commissioned by the relevant government authorities. The main objective of UNEP is to strengthen countries’ capacity to identify and implement adaptation and mitigation measures aimed at increasing resilience to climate change of countries and local communities. Often, climate change and forests protection action are weakened by the limited capacities of policy makers and international organizations to transmit, in a visual way, the significance and urgency of climate action in a clear and appropriate way to the broader range of stakeholders and to the public. For these reasons, UN-REDD is looking for a Multimedia communication expert with experience in data storytelling to support the UN-REDD in the development of communication and knowledge products while maintaining a coherent branding for UNEP and UNEP initiatives and projects. The consultant will be supervised by the Programme Management Officer for the UN-REDD+ Programme for UNEP Latin America and Caribbean Office and will work from home.
