Pact Inc. seeks a Cross-cutting Team Leader on the Liberia Conservation Works anticipated 5-year project in Liberia to conserve threatened and endangered species by strengthening Protected Areas (PA) and improving economic conditions around PAs. The goal of this project is to conserve biodiversity while increasing economic growth. The goal will be achieved by 1) strengthening protection and management for existing PAs and Proposed Protected Areas (PPA) and 2) increasing economic growth around PPAs and PAs. Most of the project efforts will be focused in targeted geographical areas within Liberia.
The Cross-Cutting Team Leader will lead a team of experts which are critical for the success and uptake of activities under four project components-increasing the number of proposed protected areas, improving protection and management of target proposed protected areas and protected areas at the local and national level, increasing economic security for communities living around protected areas, and increasing economic growth by supporting conservation enterprises.
The Cross-Cutting Team Leader will be responsible for the supervision and overall management of the Team and its activities, providing technical guidance, project management and leadership, development and implementation of work plans, operational budgets, and performance monitoring plans; coordination with other Team Leaders, partner organizations, and ensuring achievement of project results and objectives. The Cross-Cutting Team Leader will ensure compliance with USAID rules and regulations and Pact policies.
