Community Impacts Coordinator at BioCarbon Partners Zambia Limited

BCP’s mission is making conservation of wildlife habitat valuable to people.

BCP is a social enterprise working with communities and international partners to implement forest conservation and carbon emission reduction projects on a large scale. The communities who are the traditional forest owners and users are at the center of our work.

BCP is recruiting a Community Impacts Coordinator who will take charge of systematically managing social and environmental impacts, in order to maximize benefits to communities while respecting the highest international standards of impact management.

Specifically, the Community Impacts Coordinator, supported by leading specialists, will lead the development of Environmental and Social Management Systems (ESMS) and Livelihood Restoration Plans (LRP) for all our community conservation projects.

This will involve working collaboratively with a range of stakeholders; contributing to rigorous analysis of community impacts and potentials; participating in identification of win-win strategies for communities and the environment; overseeing monitoring and reporting of social benefits and impacts; and detailed planning and implementation of impact mitigation plans and action programs to the community level.


  1. Develop and implement an environmental and social management system (ESMS) for all of BCP’s projects, in line with international standards and BCP’s existing policies.
  2. Develop livelihood restoration plans (LRPs) for community conservation projects and oversee their implementation.
  3. Develop and implement a social monitoring plan and protocol for Free, Prior and Informed consent (FPIC) for BCP’s conservation projects.
  4. Develop other required management plans, procedures, and protocols, working with the field implementation team to identify capacity development needs, to provide required training.
