'Supporting environmental organizations in achieving their goals'
Examples of our work
2012 IUCN World Conservation Congress
(Jeju, South Korea)
This was amongst the largest ever gatherings of environmentalists, from grassroots NGOs to governments and the private sector. DJEnvironmental coordinated and led a multinational team of report writers to provide the official record of the seven-day Members’ Assembly and provided post-Congress publication services, including editing and typesetting (the latter in English, French and Spanish) of the Proceedings and Resolutions & Recommendations.
Also in 2011 and 2012, DJEnvironmental undertook major report-writing assignments for the Convention on Migratory Species (10th Conference of
Parties, Bergen, Norway, November 2011); African–Eurasian Migratory Waterbird Agreement (5th Meeting of Parties, La Rochelle, France, May 2012);
Ramsar Convention on Wetlands (11th Conference of Parties, Bucharest, Romania, July 2012).
Publications of UNEP’s Post-Conflict and Disaster Management Branch
Between 1999 and 2011 DJEnvironmental provided coordination, editorial, proofreading and/or typesetting services for a series of reports published by UNEP’s Geneva-based Post-Conflict and Disaster Management Branch, highlighting the sometimes hidden environmental problems that occur in the wake of natural disasters or armed conflict. These included:
International Single Species Action Plan for Lesser White-fronted Goose Anser erythropus
DJEnvironmental was responsible for compiling the draft Action Plan for this globally threatened species, taking
into account the contributions received from diverse stakeholders with sometimes strongly differing views on
certain issues. The finalized Action Plan was adopted by the 4th Meeting of Parties to AEWA
(Antananarivo, Madagascar, 2009).
Evaluation of cooperation between ACE
(Alliance of Beverage Carton Manufacturers for the Environment) and WWF
This was a desk-based evaluation of a groundbreaking cooperative agreement between a private-sector
trade association concerned with environmental performance and responsibility and one of the world’s
largest conservation NGOs. DJEnvironmental designed and implemented an evaluation framework involving
an online questionnaire and telephone interviews with key stakeholders from each cooperating partner.
Other recent evaluations have been carried out for WWF European Policy Office and PAN Parks / WWF-

identified as a key threat to this globally
threatened species. The IRP team met with
central and local government officials,
hunters, local people and other stakeholders
and submitted a detailed report and
recommendations to AEWA’s Standing
