This is an exciting decade to be a part of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) as we rapidly expand the representative, effective, and durable protection of biodiversity and living carbon reserves, through unprecedented collaborations and powerful, permanent deal structures. These innovative deal structures include private transactions of lands and waters and resource rights, debt conversion initiatives, and Project Finance for Permanence (PFP) approaches, all with the goal of durable and lasting protection for nature while providing community development benefits for people. Working in partnership with global to local governments, indigenous partners and local communities, and other NGOs, the Global Director, Durable Protection Strategies will continue to innovate and scale-up these protection approaches. They will lead multi-stakeholder participatory conservation and financial planning, establish long-term sustainable financing, and secure approval and buy-in by all stakeholders to ensure that terrestrial, freshwater and marine conservation can endure in perpetuity. Building on TNC’s legacy of establishing the first two PFPs globally (Great Bear Rainforest and Forever Costa Rica), the Director will grow and oversee a program focused on advancing PFP and other innovative finance opportunities within TNC’s priority areas and galvanizing TNCs technical, political, and philanthropic resources in support of the initiatives. They will also play a leadership role in a new, large-scale, multi-NGO Partnership to accelerate the pace and implementation of PFPs and will ensure TNC’s effective participation in that collaboration. The Director will report to the Global Managing Director, Protect Oceans, Lands and Waters and as an inspirational leader and skilled supervisor, will build and support a team to advance our Durable Protection work. They build relationships and work across The Nature Conservancy to advance these deals from concept to closing and implementation. The location for this position is negotiable within countries where TNC is an already established entity (existing TNC office).
