IUCN has developed a robust assurance procedure for implementing the IUCN Green List Sustainability Standard. Good assurance boosts the credibility of the evaluation process and guarantees that a ‘Green List’ area is one that is genuinely delivering success for people and nature, including verified contributions to biodiversity conservation and climate change turnaround.

The IUCN Green List is developed according to the ISEAL codes of good practice in standard setting and measuring impact. Since the initial launch of the pilot results at the 2014 Sydney World Parks Congress, IUCN works with many countries to implement the Green List, including France, China, Kenya, Colombia, Mexico and Madagascar. Through trial and feedback, the Standard and User Manual continue to evolve.

If you are interested to bid for this role, please review the Terms of Reference. Provide IUCN with a 2-page written summary of how you and your organisation would deliver the specified tasks, and what are your comparative strengths, your assurance credentials, and your related experience.

The deadline is December 13th at 17:00 CET. Please submit by email.
