Company Profile

Community Forests International is an environmental charity advancing climate-smart forestry knowledge, technologies, and practice.

Job Description

The Climate Forest Coordinator will assist the organization in expanding its positive environmental impact — specifically the understanding and mainstreaming of Acadian forest protection and restoration approaches which enhance both climate change resilience and also increase safe carbon storage in forest ecosystems. The Climate Forest Coordinator will support a diversity of program activities that continuously improve both the quality and adoption rates of the Community Forests International's climate-smart forestry innovations.

This position requires a technical understanding of climate science supported by strong experience in digital technologies and communications.

  • Research the technical and social dimensions of transitioning forest management practices to 'climate-smart' models including both climate risk and carbon storage values as well as user-design considerations.

 

  • Collect, analyze, and report data on climate adaptation and mitigation measures in Community Forests International's conserved research and development forests as well as among a wider network of engaged academic and practitioner groups across New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.

 

  • Communicate key information to government, forestry, and academic audiences in a range of formal workshops, conferences, and working groups already scheduled for the 2020-2021 program.
