How to Apply

The Amazonia Verde Project proposes to conserve nearly 73M hectares (24.5M ha directly and 48.5M ha indirectly) by 2025 by empowering Indigenous Peoples and local communities and pioneering new financial mechanisms to advance conservation investments and incentives. The long-term conservation of the Amazon rainforest requires capacities, will, and finance. CI will build the capacities of IPLCs to lead on their own and give them the tools to access the funding they need to carry out their own initiatives to conserve forests and support livelihoods. Project activities will benefit more than 68,000 men, women and children in total.

Develop, manage and execute communication plans to promote Amazonia Verde project results, generate interest and support to advance CI’s mission and strategic objectives. Identify opportunities for media outreach and audience engagement. Develop content for external communication channels including digital, print and internet and social media platforms.

Gather and spread stories from the field during the implementation phase of the Amazonia Verde project. Coordinate and manage division and/or CI-wide internal communications to ensure CI staff are aware of key CI priorities, projects and accomplishments.  Work with business units at HQ or in the field to improve information flow and foster understanding of CI’s work with relevant partners, donors and existing and potential supporters.

Provide periodic reports to help management assess the effectiveness of various media and communication strategies. Stay abreast of media trends and identify opportunities for CI to strengthen its messages and build awareness with key audiences.

This position will organize and oversee the Indigenous women leader fellowship program, taking into account the lessons learned from previous experiences in CI and other programs of partner organizations
