Position Title: Project Manager, New Deal for Nature and People

Location: Tunis

Brief background and Mission of the Department:


Despite decades of effort, global trends on the loss of nature remain deeply worrying.
Unquestionably, stopping biodiversity decline to secure the sustainable provision of vital ecosystem goods and services that underpin humanity’s sustainable development is an imperative.


To escalate the challenge to the top of the global agenda in 2020, WWF launched an ambitious, integrated network initiative to (1) radically escalate the political relevance of nature; 2) galvanize a cohesive movement across states and non-state actors to drive change; and 3) secure ambitious commitments and strong accountability mechanisms through relevant multi-lateral and non-state mechanisms to deliver change.

WWF’s work on the New Deal for Nature & People is about securing the above ambitions. It strives to mobilize key stakeholders in order to encourage global decision makers to play a leadership role. Key stakeholders include the public and civil society, business and the financial sector, as well as political players. Effectively engaging the stakeholders require the strong involvement of teams and country offices across the WWF Network, supported by strong scientific research in order to make a strong science-based and economically sound case for urgent action.


WWF North Africa will launch her stakeholder engagement strategy in March 2020 with facilitation of two initiatives: 

  • New Deal Africa: Tunisia  
  • Biodiversity Engagement Facilitation -Engaging partners to stop biodiversity decline

The New Deal initiative will support WWF in Tunisia  to contribute to stopping global biodiversity decline and promoting a New Deal to improve the integration of biodiversity in public and private decisions.  The Biodiversity Engagement Facilitation initiative complements the New Deal. It will support WWF to engage stakeholders to contribute to bending the curve on biodiversity decline by setting national and sectoral voluntary contributions. Collectively, the two initiatives will support scientific studies, training champions and CSOs ad collaborating with them to raise public awareness and advocate for political and business adherence to the New Deal, facilitating high level dialogue,…
