The Forestry Policy and Resources Division (FOA) leads FAO’s work in promoting sustainable forest management and providing leadership on the environmental, social and economic dimensions of forestry, including its contributions to poverty reduction and food security and nutrition. It supports member countries, civil society and the private sector on aspects ranging from development of effective forest policies to forest conservation and management issues, and strengthens the role of forests in climate change mitigation and adaptation. The Division also collects, analyses and disseminates information on the world’s forest resources and on the production, trade and consumption of wood and non-wood forest products.


The International Specialists - National forest monitoring systems (NFMS) - will support the implementation of Green Climate Fund (GCF) readiness project “Preparatory support to the national designated authority (NDA) of Equatorial Guinea to engage with the GCF in early phases of REDD+” (GCP/EQG/014/GCF). The positions are aligned with FOA’s country support on climate change mitigation and adaptation, and will be located under the NFM/REDD+ cluster of the FAO Forestry Department.


The positions will focus on providing technical support for designing and planning the National Forest Monitoring System (NFMS) in support of REDD+ measurement, reporting and verification (MRV); for developing the Forest Reference (Emission) Level FREL/FRL; and for reinforcing country’s capacity on REDD+ and NFMS.
