INTRODUCCIÓN
This position will support the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in managing Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning activities according to IUCN’s guidelines and procedures, regarding two projects: Rio Doce Panel and Bonn Challenge Barometer.
Rio Doce Panel (RDP): IUCN was requested by the Renova Foundation in 2017 to establish an Independent Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel (ISTAP) that provides technical and scientific support to the Foundation for the restoration effort of the Rio Doce Basin, Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo, Brazil, as mandated in the Transaction and Conduct Adjustment Term, and described on Renova Foundation website. ISTAPs adhere to the principles of independence, transparency, accountability, and engagement. The Rio Doce Panel (RDP) was then established as a five-year initiative focused on the restoration of the Rio Doce Basin. Since 2017, five papers were produced with recommendations, all documented here: www.iucn.org/riodocepanel.

The Rio Doce Panel project has put in place a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) strategy that aims to understand and learn from the influence and impact of RDP products and recommendations on target processes and audiences, as well as any unexpected outcomes. It also aims to help RDP making sense of the evidence gathered to meet adaptive management and learning objectives. Different tools are being used to capture, integrate and report on evidence of outcomes and impact across different scales and support learning.
Bonn Challenge Barometer: The Bonn Challenge is a global effort to bring 150 million hectares of degraded and deforested land into restoration by 2020 and 350 million by 2030. In order to accelerate and strengthen the progress from these commitments to implementation – the project developed and publicizes the Bonn Challenge Barometer profiling leadership and quantifiable progress on implementation of the Bonn Challenge and forest landscape restoration, and equips pledgers and partners with information to accelerate action and address implementation bottlenecks. The Barometer is a universally applicable, systematic framework for identifying, assessing and tracking action on Bonn Challenge commitments. More information can be found at: https://www.iucn.org/theme/forests/projects/bonn-challenge-barometer.
This position will be based in IUCN Brazil in Brasilia and work in close coordination with the IUCN Brazil office. The MEL Officer will report to Steve Edwards, Senior Programme Manager of Business and Biodiversity Programme (BBP) based in Switzerland, who coordinates the Rio Doce Panel project. A second reporting line will be to Radhika Dave, the Senior Programme Coordinator of Science Practice and Learning under the Forest Conservation Programme (FCP), also based in Switzerland.
