Consultant for Market Assessment of Ecosystem Service Demand in Vietnam

he Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification and its global coverage may well be attractive for the emerging PES systems by guaranteeing sustainable and responsible forest practices. To explore this idea, SNV in association with FSC and CIFOR are looking to test the idea of expanding the FSC certification label beyond timber and into other ES under the Forest Certification for Ecosystem Services (ForCES) project in Vietnam.

A key component of early activities under the ForCES project will be to understand the extent of market demand for ES. The objective of the assignment will be to examine national market potential through demand studies and an analysis of the costs & benefits of incorporating ES through FSC certification.

The consultant will be recruited for a total of 15 days (with possible extension if necessary). Field time may be necessary and costs should be included for any such travel deemed necessary.
