Task
Background and objectives
Requirements
UNDP’s Global Programme on Nature for Development brings together 3 different initiatives under one program – the Equator Initiative, the National Biodiversity Initiative, and the Global Forest Initiative – in order to identify, foster, showcase and celebrate nature-based solutions that help achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at local, national and international levels. Equator Prize case studies support a network of local sustainable development solutions. Case studies translated into communities' local language(s) advances recognition of these solution. Global Forest Initiative translated case studies help us conduct more effective multi-stakeholder dialogues to accelerate forest action. We require UN Online Volunteers to help us translate a 10-page case study from English to Thai, and to help us proofread the translation. The case study will be emailed to the selected volunteers. We will select 1 volunteer to conduct the translation, and 1 to proofread.

The Equator Initiative works with partners to identify, document, and analyze the success factors of local best practice, and to catalyze ongoing peer-to-peer learning, knowledge exchange and replication of best practice. The Equator Initiative accomplishes this through three action areas. the Equator Prize,the Equator Dialogues and Equator Knowledge. which is a research, documentation, and learning program. The case studies are part of Equator Knowledge. The New York Declaration on Forests is a global agreement to halve forest loss by 2020 and end it by 2030. The NYDF Global Platform is hosted by the Global Programme on Nature for Development at UNDP, in collaboration with Meridian Institute, Climate Focus and Climate Advisers. To achieve this objective it engages in mainstreaming of biodiversity conservation, market transformation, and capacity development activities. The translation of these materials helps us conduct more effective multi-stakeholder dialogues to accelerate forest action.
