As a core component of its Climate Strategy, Conservation International has set ambitious targets for scaling restoration globally as a climate solution.

The Restoration Partnerships Manager strengthens key partnerships to implement CI’s global strategy for restoration through facilitating CI’s leadership in key global networks, initiatives, and institutions, such as those supported through the Global Environment Facility (GEF), Green Climate Fund (GCF), and U . N . Decade for Ecosystem Restoration. They drive engagements to deliver action and impact and work with Conservation International’s partners to develop global strategy and translate that into impact on the ground, as well as bringing CI’s experience in direct restoration work around the world to the fore in informing global restoration frameworks and initiatives. The successful candidate may also lead and support other projects involving Conservation International’s mission and fill other roles as needed for the team’s success.
