Background to the ToR
Illegal wildlife trade is a vast, international, and multi-billion-dollar commercial enterprise. Across Indonesia, key species including tiger, rhino, elephant, orangutan, birds, bears, orchids, fish, turtles, pangolins, coral, snakes, sharks and more are being taken and traded in large volumes and at unsustainable levels. While Indonesia has a legal framework that supports the control of wildlife trade, yet its effective implementation has many barriers. WCS aims to support the removal of these barriers, and to remove the threat to Indonesian biodiversity caused by both the legal and illegal over-exploitation of wild animals and plants.
The Training officer will support the WTP Program by coordinating and assisting the training specialist with the planning and implementation of the WTP training activities throughout target landscapes and seascapes in Indonesia.

The position will therefore require close liaison with the Indonesian government partnering agencies and excellent coordination and communication skills. A key part of the ToR will be to develop institutional sustainability by developing training modules within a syllabus that receives accreditation by the partnering government agencies and is therefore fully incorporated within their annual work plan and budget.
