The Forest and Climate Change Unit at GAF AG has been involved in the past 15 years, with the application of Earth Observation and spatial analytical tools to resolve forest monitoring challenges globally. Our work focusses on supporting countries implement improved forest management, forest and biodiversity restoration and improving the livelihoods of communities. By doing so we are also supporting countries fulfill their obligations to reducing GHG emissions as part of the Paris Agreement in the forest and land use domain.
To help achieve our goals and activities, we are looking for an experienced (Senior) Project Co-ordinator/Manager in the Field of Forest and Climate Change who will be able to undertake the management of forest and land use projects in the framework of different international policy segments/UN Conventions with different clients who require urgent and innovative EO solutions for forest monitoring. An essential component of your work will be to understand the client requirements and translate them into feasible, cost-effective technical solutions. The projects are large volume budgets and are implemented with international Consortium Partners which include both Service Providers and R&D community. Thus addressing client needs, collaboration with clients and external partners as well as team work with the in-house resources at GAF will be essential for performing well.
The success of the team will hinge on your ability to foster an understanding at all levels on the focus of the work, the requirements of the client and meeting targets in a timely quality assured manner.
