Reports To: Conservation Secretary
The Government of Kenya has received support from the Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF)
under the World Bank towards preparing activities Reducing Emissions through Deforestation and
Degradation (REDD+ Readiness) and intends to apply part of the proceeds for employment of a National
REDD+ Coordination Officer.
REDD+ Readiness activities refer to a set of activities needed to develop a National Strategy and
Implementation Framework to support REDD+ implementation as a Climate Change mitigation process.
In support of these efforts, a REDD+ Readiness Preparation Proposal (RPP) has been prepared which
proposes a number of strategy priority areas and actions to design and test REDD+ measures.
These activities include: a management and consultative approach that will provide the basis of all
activities, (legal, socio-economic environmental and financial arrangements) for subsequent REDD+
implementation; the approach to design Kenya’s Carbon Emissions Reference Scenario; the means for
monitoring the emissions and the approach to assess and subsequently monitor social and environmental
impacts on REDD+ strategies.
Implementation of RPP to deliver the strategy, a reference emission scenario and monitoring system, will
be undertaken over a period of the next three years.
The Kenya REDD+ Readiness efforts will be steered by an Inter-Sectoral National REDD+ Steering
Committee (NRSC) based at the Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife Headquarters at Teleposta Building.
The strategy formulation process will be coordinated under a National REDD Coordination Office
managed by the National REDD Coordination Officer (NRCO). The Ministry of Forestry and Wildlife now
seeks to engage the services of a competent Expert to serve as the NRCO.

Technical Assistance on REDD+:
The NRCO shall be a qualified professional with technical competence relevant to the REDD+ process to
provide technical assistance and policy advice to Government, the REDD+ Task Forces/Committees and
Civil Society Stakeholders on REDD+ matters.

data and results, and generate consensus among key stakeholders. The Officer should be competent and

Scenario and a Monitoring System.
