The Conservation Tourism Projects Manager shall manage all aspects of TNC’s conservation advisory services to the ACCT Fund.
In this capacity, the Conservation Tourism Projects Manager shall be responsible for conducting detailed conservation and socio-economic diligence on conservation tourism
companies who are under consideration as potential investments for the Fund. This includes annual on-site meetings with each of the conservation tourism operators in the Fund’s
portfolio and review of the operators’ conservation and social outcome potential and/or delivery against the benchmarks set by the Fund.
The Conservation Tourism Projects Manager will be responsible for developing detailed written recommendations to the Fund’s Conservation Committee outlining (i) whether a conservation
tourism company meets the Fund’s conservation criteria, (ii) what outcomes each conservation tourism company should seek to achieve over the life of their loan and (iii) what conservation
covenants should be put in place to hold the tourism companies accountable to their impact metrics. They will submit a written recommendation to the Conservation Committee for each new
investment and will also be asked to present their findings and recommendation in person or over teleconference to the Conservation Committee.
The Conservation Tourism Projects Manager will receive guidance and input from the members of the Conservation Committee throughout the diligence process.
Once an investment has been made by the Fund, the Conservation Tourism Projects Manager will also be responsible for monitoring the conservation and community impacts of those
investments over the life of the Fund. They will monitor the conservation and community outcomes delivered by each investment bi-monthly and prepare summary reports (and all additional
material required) outlining investee performance against Fund impact benchmarks for the Fund’s Conservation Committee. These reports may also be shared with the Fund’s investors.
The Conservation Tourism Projects Manager will be responsible for coordinating the Conservation Committee’s meetings, developing any necessary materials (including the conservation
recommendation memos) in advance of those meetings and providing any necessary follow-up to the Conservation Committee or individual members.
