Position Overview The officer will support Pew’s efforts to help decision makers and influential stakeholders in the Philadelphia region address key policy challenges by providing them with relevant data and research, and bringing to bear national expertise and examples of policy reforms that have been successful in other cities. The project will concentrate its efforts on areas (1) where Pew has built expertise in our local, state, and national projects; (2) that are recognized by influential constituencies in Philadelphia as important and timely; and (3) where research has shown there are effective policies or practices in other states and localities that could inform Philadelphia’s decisions.   This initiative will draw on the research and expertise of Pew’s Philadelphia research initiative, which was established to provide data and impartial analysis on issues critical to the city’s future, and the robust national networks of experts that exist within Pew’s D.C.-based state and local government programs. The core element of the project will be an ongoing series of convenings intended to allow relevant local policymakers and stakeholders to engage in candid dialogue with both subject matter authorities who have conducted extensive study on targeted issues and public officials who have innovated and implemented more effective approaches. Our goal for this project over the next two years is for policymakers to draw on the research and expertise provided by Pew to enact policies, adopt agency practices or make resource allocations in at least two issue areas that will be examined by the project.   The ideal candidate will have a strong policy background combined with the capacity to coordinate both internal and external logistics and be capable of designing, planning, and executing convening sessions. The candidate will be knowledgeable about the local policy and political landscape, and have the proven ability to facilitate policy conversations and discussions of research with key decision makers.

Finally, the candidate will be able to work with research and policy teams at Pew to synthesize data and existing research and participate in conceiving and drafting original materials for both internal and external consumption. The officer will report to the project director, Philadelphia Policy. The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.

Our environment work is focused on reducing the scope and severity of three major global environmental problems: - The use of fossil fuels and other energy sources that damage the environment and increase the concentration of greenhouse gases in the planet’s atmosphere; - The erosion of large terrestrial wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity; and, - The destruction of the world’s marine environment.   Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia and Chile. Pew has also become one of, if not the, largest group of marine policy professionals in the world, working to reduce the scope and severity of various activities that are having a detrimental impact on the health of the world’s oceans. Each year many tons of fish and other marine life are removed from the world’s oceans due to harmful fishing practices and to the lack of appropriate regulatory controls that allow overfishing and habitat destruction to continue.   Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat. Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas. Pew’s work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life and the habitat on which it depends. Our work uses a systematic, rigorous approach through the application of the latest science-based conservation standards to establish catch limits and to put in place other measures to protect or restore populations of marine life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales.   Our current efforts in the Western Hemisphere are focused on implementing ecosystem-based fisheries management practices in U.S. waters, protecting marine wildlife and habitat in the Arctic Ocean, achieving clean energy and climate adaption policies at the federal level, and designating new wilderness protected areas, parks and wildlife refuges on land.   International Conservation Unit: The International Conservation Unit (ICU) works across Pew’s environment international portfolio to ensure development of robust policy positions and strategy, provide specialized expertise, assist in developing and launching of new bodies of work, and provide for internal and external coordination, including coordinating Pew efforts around major international meetings. The ICU is an integral part of the broader environment international team, which currently focuses on establishing marine protected areas, improving fisheries management, ending illegal fishing, improving shark conservation and regulating seabed mining.   Position Overview:  The Senior Officer, Business Partnerships and Outreach, International Conservation Unit will be responsible for developing strategies designed to leverage markets-based approaches to conservation. Working closely with other members of the team and in coordination with the Senior Officer, Business Partnerships and Outreach, Ending Illegal Fishing Project, the Senior Officer will develop and integrate market-based approaches into existing ocean work and help to develop new land and ocean projects with market-based components. The Senior Officer will also develop partnerships and collaborative relationships with retailers, industry and other key constituencies to enhance Pew’s international conservation efforts. This position is based in Washington, DC and will report to the Project Director, International Conservation Unit.

We are a dynamic, rapidly evolving organization that values creativity and innovative thinking and fosters strong teamwork with mutual respect.   The Environmental Portfolio at the Pew Charitable Trusts: For the past twenty-five years, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges. Our environment work spans all seven continents with close to 250 professionals working full-time at the local, national, and international levels to reduce the scope and severity of global environmental problems, such as the erosion of large wilderness ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity and the destruction of the marine environment.   Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of unspoiled wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia’s Outback and Chilean Patagonia. Preserving these places offers an opportunity to conserve wildlife habitat, shorelines and pristine landscapes for future generations. Our work relies on the sciences of conservation, biology, and economics to advocate for sound solutions to the loss of biodiversity. In the sea, reforms to how our oceans are managed are essential to address overfishing, pollution, and loss of habitat. Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat. Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas. Our work is grounded in the best available science and our goal is to reverse the decline of ocean life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales, and the habitat on which they depend.   Project Overview: At least one fifth of all fish taken from the sea are caught illegally or beyond the reach of regulators. This significantly threatens the health of the global ocean ecosystem and undermines the economies of countless fishing communities around the world. Fishing grounds in developing countries and on the high seas are especially vulnerable to exploitation by companies that engage in illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing. International crime in fisheries flourishes because flag states do not fulfill their legal obligations to control the fishing operations of their vessels, and port states do not have the tools or incentives to identify and prosecute these crimes in port. There is no silver bullet capable of addressing IUU fishing. Many tools must be marshaled to close down the avenues for illegally caught and unregulated fish. The campaign is working to implement a global system of enforcement to combat illegal fishing through the adoption and effective implementation of policy and market measures that enable the identification and tracking of industrial-scale fishing vessels, the development of practical tools to improve information-sharing among enforcement authorities, and the building of the necessary human and technical resources to sanction such vessels if they have engaged in illicit activities. Position Overview: The Officer, Technology and Analytics will report to the Project Director, Conservation Enforcement and Technology and work in close coordination with the Senior Officer, Enforcement and Technology to deliver on the breadth of enforcement and technology goals of the Ending Illegal Fishing Project (EIFP). It will include, through remote access and use of the Oversea Ocean Monitor (OOM) system and other relational databases and geographic information systems (GIS), active monitoring and generating historical analysis of designated maritime areas of interest and managing and analyzing data associated with fishing fleet dynamics that will serve to inform the EIFP with its efforts to detect, deter and eliminate IUU fishing. The Officer will also be responsible for developing and implementing Standard Operating Procedures that will govern the processes and protocols for Pew staff access to OOM and its associated outputs. The Officer will assist with the technology and enforcement aspects of Pew’s advocacy for the development and implementation of a global system of enforcement (GSE) which may also involve engagement in the market and policy aspects of the project. The work includes serving as lead and providing oversight of Pew’s engagement with INTERPOL’s Project Scale, developing new regional enforcement models and improving regional partnerships that incorporate the use of technology and enforcement mechanisms. The Officer will also assist with enhancing campaign goals by researching advancements in technologies used for fisheries monitoring and data analytics, and supporting OceanMind in their use of OOM as a primary component in the business model to obtain new users of OceanMind products, including current and future government and retail users of OOM. The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.

These waters, covering an area larger than all of the world’s continents combined, exemplify the tragedy of the global commons—exploited by all, but protected by none. The value of fully protected marine reserves has been increasingly recognized by individual countries which have established reserves in their own exclusive economic zones as a means to protect and conserve marine biodiversity and ensure the health of marine ecosystems. The United Nations (U.N.) General Assembly is anticipated to establish an intergovernmental conference in 2018 to negotiate final text of a treaty to protect marine biodiversity in the high seas by the end of 2020. This project will utilize Pew’s experience as a leader in the creation of science-based marine reserves and protected areas and international ocean policy to mount a global campaign that generates worldwide support for the negotiation of this agreement.   Position Overview: The Officer, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas will assist in building momentum for development of a new international legal instrument enabling the establishment of marine protected areas and reserves on the high seas. Efforts will focus on making the case for higher levels of ocean protection through the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Pew will work closely with other organizations to galvanize international support for an increase in the global commitment for marine protections. This position is based in Washington, DC and will work closely with the International Conservation Unit and Government Relations teams and will report to the Senior Manager, Protecting Ocean Life on the High Seas.   The position has a set time frame that could be extended based on the success of the program, funding sources, and board decisions on continued support.
