TO CONDUCT FORMATIVE RESEARCH ON CONSUMER DEMAND FOR WILDLIFE PARTS AND PRODUCTS

TRAFFIC is a leading non-governmental organisation working globally on trade in wild animals and plants in the context of both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. Our team of staff around the world carry out research, investigations and analysis to compile the evidence we use to catalyse action by governments, businesses and individuals, in collaboration with a wide range of partners, to help ensure that wildlife trade is not a threat to the conservation of nature. Unsustainable consumer demand for wildlife products is a leading cause for the threats facing many species across the world. TRAFFIC has been at the forefront of innovation within the field of Social and Behavioural Change Communications (SBCC), running various projects with relevant stakeholders targeting specific consumers of a variety of threatened wildlife. TRAFFIC uses the SBCC approach that includes market and consumer research to guide campaign design.

The Zoological Society of London (ZSL) is an international conservation charity working to create a world where wildlife thrives. From investigating the health threats facing animals to helping people and wildlife live alongside each other, ZSL is committed to bringing wildlife back from the brink of extinction through science, field conservation around the world, and engaging millions of people through ZSL’s two Zoos, ZSL London and ZSL Whipsnade Zoos. ZSL’s global Pangolin Programme has pioneered research, law enforcement capacity building, community engagement, and policy advocacy. ZSL also hosts the IUCN SSC Pangolin Specialist Group. Since 2015, ZSL Thailand’s Pangolin Project, with DNP, has been working to improve the understanding and protection of pangolins at the source through monitoring, strengthening enforcement, and engaging local communities as pangolin protectors.

To adapt existing ROUTES’ role-specific e-Modules into four languages using provided translated text.

The USAID Reducing Opportunities for Unlawful Transport of Endangered Species (ROUTES) Partnership brings together transport and logistics companies, government agencies, development groups, law enforcement, conservation organizations, academia and donors to disrupt wildlife trafficking activities, and forms a key element of the concerted international response to addressing wildlife poaching and associated criminal activities worldwide. 

At the heart of ROUTES is a core group of partners collaborating with the U.S. Government and the transport sector that includes Airports Council International (ACI), the Center for Advanced Defense Studies (C4ADS), the International Air Transport Association (IATA), TRAFFIC and WWF. The Partnership is funded by USAID and coordinated by TRAFFIC.

The ROUTES Partnership has developed a range of training tools for staff working across the global transport sector.   These include six 30-minute e-Modules targeted at those working in situations deemed most likely to be able to detect wildlife trafficking in the aviation sector, i.e. Passenger Check-in staff, Passenger Screeners, Cabin Crew, Cargo Acceptance staff, Cargo and Baggage Screeners and Ground Handlers.  These are currently only available in English. 

In the effort to increase the ability of training teams to deliver the training material and improve access to and use of the resources by non-English speakers, the current suite of e-Modules will be adapted into four languages (Simplified Chinese, French, Brazilian Portuguese and Latin American Spanish).

The successful applicant of this tender will be required to adapt each of the existing ROUTES’ role-specific e-Modules in the four languages using provided translated text.

M&E Consultant

TRAFFIC a, South African non-profit organization based in Pretoria, is implementing a wildlife crime focused project, “Development of a Comprehensive Mentoring Programme for Junior Wildlife Investigators in South Africa” supported by the U.S. Department of State – Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement.

Between 2016 and 2018, TRAFFIC implemented a pilot project on junior investigator mentoring in four provinces in South Africa. This project aims to build on the successes of the pilot project, expand the mentoring programme to all nine provinces in South Africa, and set out a structure for continued mentoring of junior wildlife investigators beyond the life of the project, and which is not dependent on donor funding.

The successful candidate will serve as an internal evaluator and work with programme and project staff to monitor and evaluate the programme’s mentoring components.  The selected service provider will be responsible for reviewing and contributing to the M&E framework, developing an approach to collect, analyse and interpret the framework’s data, and use these data to encourage team reflection,  learning, improve the programme, and contribute to quarterly reports to the donor. In addition, the person/team will assess the mentoring programme in each province, and design and implement one final evaluation.

The potential candidate/consulting firm should be familiar with the South African environmental context, US Department of State reporting requirements, and have extensive experience developing M&E frameworks, designing and facilitating theory of change and theory of action processes, and bring knowledge of how to measure mentoring programmes in the environmental sector. Experience with Developmental Evaluation is an advantage.

TRAFFIC anticipates an average two days a month for 20 months, starting in February 2021 and ending September 2022. If interested, please submit CV(s) for the person or team, including an overall budget that includes two short trips to Gauteng, and short trips to five other provinces.
