Department of Biodiversity
Project: The Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN)

Preliminary top-down estimates of the global financial gap for biodiversity range from US$ 100 to 400 billion annually and detailed bottom-up assessments in participating BIOFIN countries validate this significant financial need and have helped identify finance solutions required to achieve the Aichi Targets and biodiversity related SDGs. In recent decades, biodiversity finance tools and solutions have demonstrated their importance for achieving biodiversity and sustainable development goals. But since countries have not approached the issue of biodiversity finance in a comprehensive manner, the choice and adoption of finance solutions has remained experimental and opportunistic. Improved choice, design and implementation of effective well-tailored finance solutions will strengthen a countries' chances of achieving national and global biodiversity targets.

The Biodiversity Finance Initiative – BIOFIN – is a global programme that developed, piloted, and is continuously improving a methodology to measure existing biodiversity expenditure levels, assess future financial needs, and design comprehensive plans to use finance tools and solutions that increase financing, effectiveness and efficiency of biodiversity management in 30 countries. BIOFIN's first phase (2012-2018) enabled full assessments and initial implementation of finance plan elements in target countries. Significant enhancement and scaling up of finance solutions is required in all countries to address the biodiversity finance challenge. BIOFIN's second phase enables the 30 countries to complete the design and implementation of priority finance solutions and will allow a further 15 countries to undertake the assessments as well as create and implement their biodiversity finance plan. At the central level, knowledge management platforms will be expanded and additional guidance produced for most valuable finance solutions.

The Project is seeking for:

  1. 1 Environmental Finance Expert
  2. 1 Finance Specialist
  3. 1 Policy and Institutional Expert

Interested individual should submit a cover letter, CV with support references to Department of Biodiversity, General Secretariat of National Council for Sustainable Development, Ministry of Environment: Morodok Teacho Building (Lot 503), Tonle Basac, Chamkarmorn, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and/or email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Department of Biodiversity
Project: Developing a Comprehensive Framework for Practical Implementation of The Nagoya Protocol-ABS

Cambodia's specific geographical location and long history and complicated topographical, ecological and social features has resulted in it becoming a prosperous, rich and diverse plants genetic resource country. While diverse climatic conditions diversified the country's flora with both tropical and temperate plants, thousands of years if agricultural practice by ethnic groups enriched its crop genetic resources with great numbers of local cultivars and land race. In term of medicinal plants, the high level of genetic diversity make Cambodia an attractive country for bio-prospecting, especially given that there are approximately 800 known medicinal plants, many of which have associated knowledge.

However, Cambodia faces a wide range of issues that threaten its biological diversity and ecological security. These threats emanate from the transition from a subsistence-based agrarian economy to a consumption-based cash economy, competing land-use from urbanization and infrastructure development, poaching of wild plants and animals, localized overharvesting for timber, fuel wood and non-wood forest products, human-wildlife conflicts, and climate change. Because of the threat to biological resources, the traditional knowledge of local communities that is associated with genetic resources, the traditional knowledge of local communities that is associated with genetic resources is disappearing rapidly, due to the change of traditional lifestyles. A large volume of traditional knowledge, such as medicinal use of biological resources, is being replaced by modern technology.

To counter the various threats to biodiversity, the country has planned various strategies for the conservation and sustainable use of biological resources for socio-economic development. However, making use of its biodiversity and traditional knowledge for the promotion of bio-prospecting and of an access and benefits-sharing (ABS) national regime that is constrained by several factors. The country currently does not have a fully functional regulatory and institutional framework for ABS, and the institutional and personnel capacity to carry out bio-prospecting beyond basic level and develop and manage ABS schemes that are compliant with Nagoya Protocol. The project is intended to strengthen national capacities on access and benefit sharing of genetic resource to facilitate the implementation of the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing. The above objective would be achieved through two components, namely: (i) Creating and enabling national policy, legal and institutional framework for ABS consistent with the CBD and its Nagoya Protocol, and (ii) Developing Capacity and administrative measure for implementation of national ABS legal framework.

The Project is seeking for :

  • 1 Project Coordinator
  • 1 Finance Officer
  • 1 Administrative Officer

It is a direct response to national priorities identified through the NCSA conducted in 2005-2006 and it is also part of the institutional strengthening underway at MOE and MAFF. Through a learning-by-doing process, this project will harmonize existing environmental information systems, integrating internationally accepted measurement standards and methodologies, as well as develop a more consistent reporting on the global environment.

Under the first outcome, the project will support the development of national capacities to effectively and efficiently standardize environmental related information that is generated on the implementation of the Rio Conventions in Cambodia, and give open-access to this information. In Parallel to this, the project will support the strengthening of Cambodia's capacity to better engage stakeholders and better coordinate the implementation of the Rio conventions in the country. Under the second outcome, project resources will be used to improve the use of environmental related information for the development of innovative tools supporting decision-making processes related to the implementation of the Rio Conventions.

Project support will also include activities to develop the capacity in using this environmental related knowledge of national institutions involved in international negotiations at Conventions COPs, as well as using this knowledge to produce national reports meeting Conventions reporting obligations.
