Australian Government funding year-long opportunity

Apply now until 21 June 2024

Young professionals from the Pacific Islands are encouraged to apply for a new position at the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP).

The role will focus on implementing the Convention on Wetlands in the region. Also known as the Ramsar Convention, it is an intergovernmental treaty that provides a framework for the conservation and wise use of wetlands and their resources.

Australia is the Chair of the Convention's Youth Working Group, leading on the implementation of the Youth Resolution.

The one-year position is open to nationals of a Pacific Island country or territory aged 18 to 35 years. It will be hosted at the SPREP headquarters in Apia, Samoa.

The role is funded by a voluntary contribution from the Australian Government.

SPREP is a regional organisation charged with protecting and managing the environment and natural resources of the Pacific. It was established by governments and interested nations in the region.

As well as Apia headquarters, SPREP has offices in Fiji, the Republic of the Marshalls Islands, and Vanuatu. The program has around 150 staff from around the Pacific region and the world.

Australia is committed to partnering with the Pacific and our neighbours as we work towards a nature positive future.

We provide support to SPREP to achieve regional climate and environment priorities.
