Consultancy role supporting Alliance for the Amazon and Beyond

The Alliance for the Amazon and Beyond is looking for a part-time, Portuguese speaking consultant with strong knowledge of Brazil. 

The Alliance for the Amazon and Beyond started in October 2019 as a response to the Brazilian indigenous peoples’ and grassroots organisations’ call for support from international partners to diminish the impacts of the rapid dismantling of the socio-environmental policies and indigenous rights happening in the country.

The Alliance for Amazon and Beyond is a discrete network of individuals and organisations engaged in global socio-environmental justice, focusing on strengthening Indigenous Peoples and traditional communities in Brazil. It has an ecosystem approach consisting of thematic working groups, namely Drivers of Deforestation, Legal Strategies, Front Line Defenders Security, and Funding Facilitation. Each group informs and complements each other’s knowledge and impact on the field.

Role

We require a UK-based consultant with flexibility for occasional travel when required. You will support The Gaia Foundation and the Alliance for the Amazon and Beyond Lead Convenor. You will play a significant part in promoting knowledge exchange between organisations engaging with biocultural diversity in the UK, Europe, the US, and Brazil and promoting Indigenous Peoples’ and Traditional Communities’ rights and self-determination. Your contribution will be instrumental in holding a space for critical reflection and exchange, thereby supporting the socio-environmental movement in Brazil and beyond.
