1. Background of consultancy assignment/ project
WWF Myanmar is implementing a project ‘Stewards of Natural Resources Strengthening Livelihoods For Communities’. This project will target 10 communities in the Banchaung and Tanintharyi watersheds where the majority of villagers have a low income level. As these communities rely largely on the surrounding forests and rivers for their livelihoods, this project is bringing security and the power of land management to the hands of the people who call it home. Community representatives will become a part of decision making processes, participating in multi-stakeholder planning and FPIC processes to make socially, ecologically and economically sound development decisions.

Part of the outputs of this project is the development and implementation of an environmental awareness program building on traditional ecological knowledge collected by communities in the 10 target sites to ensure the local ecological knowledge is enhanced. Communities were assisted in documenting the traditional systems.

S/he will cooperate with the Department of Education and the relevant KNU entity and also do an inventory of available environmental education approaches and materials.
