Call for tender: NGO advocacy capacity building expert

Deadline for applications: 6th January 2023, 17:00 CET

The European Environmental Bureau is carrying an ambitious project to increase Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC) NGOs knowledge on preventive chemical policies and tools, increase their policy and advocacy capacities and communication skills through a “learning by doing” process. The project started in July 2021 and will finish by June 2024. During the first year and a half, LMIC NGOs have increased their knowledge on several chemical policy issues of their interest, have participated in trainings on communications skills and have developed a joint campaign strategy to stop exports of chemicals that are banned in the EU, together with the EEB and in coordination with European NGOs working on the topic.

In this framework, the EEB is looking for an NGO advocacy capacity building expert, who would strengthen LMIC NGO advocacy capacities by guiding the implementation of the joint strategy.

Specifically, the consultant would:

  • Organize monthly online workshops to facilitate the implementation of the joint campaign- strategy to stop exports of chemicals that are banned in the EU.
  • Organize a face-to-face meeting in Brussels.
  • Keep the network updated through the project’s WhatsApp, Teams and email channels about the policy situation and the ongoing positions and collaborations among CSOs.
  • Help the network members to evaluate the national and regional situation and help them in the understanding of the legislative processes.
  • Assist the network members in drafting new proposals or amending existing ones considering the national and regional situation and providing a background about the work done in the EU.

The consultant will be assisted by the EEB’s staff working on the project. The activities would start in January 2023 until December 2023. An extension until June 2024 will be discussed one month before the ending of the contract.
