M&E – GIS Officer (m/f)


WWF is recruiting a M&E – GIS Officer (m/f), to be based in Angoche, Mozambique.
  • World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has been working in Mozambique since 2001, and is currently implementing its second country strategy (2020-2030), whose goal is for WWF MCO to influence and ensure sound management and responsible stewardship and use of Mozambique’s unique biodiversity for the benefit of present and future generations. The strategy, underpinned by the fact that the wellbeing and prosperity of Mozambicans is dependent on nature and that, today, the rate of loss of this life-support system demands urgent and effective action, is anchored around three conservation pillars, namely: i) inclusive conservation of habitats and species; ii) sustainable and equitable livelihoods; and iii) greening the footprint of economic development.
