The WLC programme coordinator shall assist in programme budgeting, implementation and reporting together with the National Chapters of the Regional Environment Network in selected intervention countries of the Horn of Africa. The programme coordinator will be the liaison to IUCN NL and take the lead in the development of work plans and reports to IUCN NL.

Other core tasks of the coordinator will be to lead the improvement of wildlife crime-related knowledge and information sharing among the authorities and key stakeholders in the Horn of Africa; to understand the dynamics related to law enforcement and compliance to combat wildlife crime; and to strengthen community structures as effective agents for preventing and combating wildlife crime. The programme coordinator will work closely with the IFAW team implementing on-the-ground projects in the region that aim to strengthen wildlife law enforcement and compliance, both at the local, national and regional level. The leverage of additional funding to upscale WLC programme activities, e.g. by conducting feasibility studies and writing project proposals, is a critical task that will be included in the work activities.
