FSC Congo Basin is looking for a Consultant fluent in Mandarin to identify Chinese actors in the Gabon timber sector who could be interested in FSC certification.

In this context, FSC seeks to identify actors amongst the following who might be interested in collaborating to develop an FSC-certified value chain.
The consultant's tasks will include listing Chinese concessionaires operating in Gabon, identifying and motivating at least five concessionaires to work with FSC, listing the products sold by these companies, and analyzing the needs of the timber market.
The consultant must be fluent in Mandarin, have sufficient competency in English and/or French to write at least basic reports, and be able to operate in Gabon.
