  • SADC Common Position Development for CBD COP14

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    The German International Cooperation (GIZ) supports the SADC FANR
    Directorate through the SADC Programme – Transboundary Use and
    Protection of Natural Resources (TUPNR) to improve the implementation of
    SADC protocols and strategies for sustainable natural resource
    management by regional and national actors. Among other things, the
    programme supports the coordination of Regional Common Positions for
    Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs).
    The SADC Member States mandated the SADC Secretariat to, amongst
    others, advise and guide them on the management of environment, natural
    resources and wildlife. The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) is the
    MEA that is appointed to govern the conservation of biological diversity, the
    sustainable use of its components, and the fair and equitable sharing of
    benefits arising from the use of genetic resources. Furthermore the
    Convention adopted two supplementary agreements, namely the Cartagena
    Protocol on Biosafety and the Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic
    Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their
    Utilization, also known as the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit
    Sharing (ABS). The 14th session of the Conference of the Parties (COP14) is
    taking place from 10–22 November 2018 at Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt.
    In order to further guide SADC Member States through the preparatory
    process leading to CBD COP14 and facilitate the development of common
    positions for (1) the Main CBD COP14, (2) Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety
    and (3) Nagoya Protocol on ABS, individual consultants are invited to bid
    for the assignment on SADC Common Position Development for CBD
    COP14. The selected consultant will enter into a contract with GIZ.
