Project Coordinator- Pucallpa, Peru

Deadline: 31/05/2024

About Earthworm

With most of our staff operating directly on the ground where the issues are, we work with our members and partners to make value chains an engine of prosperity for communities and ecosystems.

We see a world where forests are a boundless source of materials and a home for biodiversity; communities see their rights respected and have opportunities to develop; workers are seen as productive partners, and agriculture becomes the instrument to feed a hungry planet and keep our climate stable.

About the Longitudinal Landscape in Peru

The Longitudinal Landscape area is a biodiversity hotspot that contains six critical protected areas. It has been a focus area for agricultural development in recent years, resulting in 2 million ha of forest loss between 2001 and 2018 and various active social conflicts. At Earthworm, we use the landscape approach to leverage the influence of value chain actors (suppliers, brands, producers) to drive change and transformation that create value for all, especially for farmers, communities and the environment. The landscape approach also encourages the national and local authorities to implement policies related to land use development planning (e.g. micro zoning) and sustainable livelihoods. We work with various raw materials such as palm oil, cocoa, and wood production with reforestation across the landscape.
