National UNV Wetland Biodiversity Conservation Field Worker – Yancheng Coastal Marshes
This post is a United Nations Volunteers Programme Assignment and based on the values of free will, commitment, engagement and solidarity, which are the foundations of volunteerism. Volunteering brings benefit to the individual volunteer. It makes important contributions, economically, as well as socially. It contributes to creating social cohesion and capital, through helping to build trust and reciprocity among citizens.
The United Nations Volunteers is the UN Organisation that supports sustainable human development globally through the promotion of volunteerism and mobilization of volunteers. It serves the causes of peace and development through enhancing opportunities for participation by all peoples. It is universal, inclusive and embraces volunteer actions in all its diversity.
Volunteerism is diverse and is embedded in all cultures and traditions. In this context, as a United Nations Volunteer you are encouraged and expected to relate to local volunteerism and to be identified with the concept. You are expected to regard your national colleagues as peers and together uphold trust as volunteer among yourselves and within the communities and the organization you are assigned to.
Wetland Biodiversity Conservation And Sustainable Use In China Project (CPR/98/G32)
This UNDP project, funded by the Global Environment Facility and the Government of China requires a full time field worker to assist in a range of activities that will incorporate considerations of wetland biodiversity conservation into local government decision making and action in the Yancheng Coastal Marshes area of Jiangsu Province, and to provide advice based on his expertise and local knowledge.
The objective of the project is to establish wetland biodiversity conservation as a routine consideration in national, provincial and local government decision making and action.
At the Yancheng Coastal Marshes site landscape level management practices and guidelines with respect to wetland biodiversity conservation will be established through working with local government, including the range of agencies that affect wetlands. Project activities will include increasing access of the general public to information on wetland biodiversity and decision making that affects wetlands, sectoral analyses of the policies and practices affecting wetlands, economic analyses, and training and material support to relevant government agencies, including nature reserves. There will be a project coordinator (termed an Outcome Coordinator) and one National UNV Field Worker based in Yancheng Coastal Marshes. Further details of the project can be found in the Project Revision Document (April 2005) on the project website (http://www.wetland-gef-cpr98.org) or can be requested by email from Ms Doris Vogl .
