Maori needed for Pacific Development and Conservation Trust

1 min read

The Minister for Disarmament and Arms Control, Hon Georgina te Heuheu, is seeking nominations of suitably qualified people as Advisory Trustees to the Pacific Development and Conservation Trust.

The Pacific Development and Conservation Trust was established on 23 May 1989. The funding of the Trust was received from France in 1986 in recognition of events surrounding the destruction of the vessel, Rainbow Warrior. The Trust funds projects that promote sustainable development in the South Pacific (including NZ) while conserving the natural environment and cultural heritage of its people.

Advisory Trustees need to have considerable experience and knowledge in the areas of conservation and/or development in NZ or in the South Pacific. Experience in governance and funding distribution is also desirable.

In addition, the Minister has identified the need for:

  • grant making skills and experience
  • experience in the design and delivery of social interventions
  • connections with the Conservation sector
  • experience with the aid sector (most notably in ngos) and
  • sound understanding of economics and business development.

Some representation from the South Island is also desirable.

Nominations are to be submitted to this email address by Wednesday 20 April 2011, or directly to George Hampton; at [email protected] by Friday 22 April 2011.
