CIFOR-ICRAF are non-profit, scientific institutions that conduct research on the most pressing challenges of forest and landscape management around the world. Using a global, multidisciplinary approach, we aim to improve human well-being, protect the environment, and increase equity. Our work focuses on innovative research, developing partners’ capacity, and actively engaging in dialogue with all stakeholders to inform policies and practices that affect forests and people. Our work spans the globe, with expertise in the ‘global South’. Founded in 1993 and 1978 respectively, CIFOR-ICRAF began merging on January 1, 2019.

CIFOR-ICRAF is looking for a Research Officer on Sustainable Domestic Value Chains of Wildlife, Timber and Cocoa Overview The CIFOR Value Chain, Finance and Investment (VFI) team has been studying the legality and sustainability of value chains associated with tropical forests for many years. In Central Africa, numerous studies have been carried out on value chains for the wildlife and timber sectors, and more recently for cocoa.

The aim of this project is to develop evidence-based guidelines for regulating wildlife trade to address the risks of COVID-19 without undermining legal and sustainable wildlife trade economies. This project will use trade data, interviews and the Delphi method to achieve the following objectives: (1) track changing wildlife trade trends during the pandemic; (2) assess the impacts of these changing trends on people engaged in wildlife economies; and (3) formulate new guidelines for safe, legal and sustainable wildlife trade in the COVID-19 era.Second, the project entitled “Essor des transactions de sciages d’origine légale au Cameroun” aims to increase the use of legal timber in Cameroon by increasing the quantity of legal timber produced, supporting the emergence of national demand for legal timber, and facilitating transactions between suppliers and consumers of lega timber products.Lastly, the project entitled “Appui à la conservation de la forêt communautaire de la COPAL” supports measures for forest conservation in the COPAL community forest, accompanied by investments in the surrounding area for sustainable eco-development for the benefit of local communities, through legal and efficient cocoa production, forest plantations and the legal small-scale exploitation of timber.This assignment will involve conducting semi-structured interviews with participants in bushmeat supply chains, including exporters (if relevant), intermediaries and harvesters/hunters; advocating for consuming timber with legal origin in Cameroonian domestic markets; and integrating sustainable value chains in the revision of the Simple Management Plan for the COPAL community forest.
