Location: Various Developing Countries
The NDC Partnership has issued a Global Call for International Experts to support climate-resilient recovery planning in developing countries in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic. This support comes at a critical time when many countries are revising their commitments to the Paris Agreement in 2020, through the enhancement of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). While countries design stimulus packages and recovery plans in response to COVID-19, there is an opportunity to ensure that national climate ambition is an integral component of short- and long-term recovery and economic growth strategies.
While the specific activities of each economic advisor will vary country by country, there are two broad categories of advisory support that the NDC Partnership Support Unit seeks to fill for it's developing member countries: economic planning and recovery or climate finance and resource mobilisation. Advisors will be embedded in Ministries of Finance/Planning/Economy for a period of up to 12 months, full time. Due to COVID-19 movement restrictions, initial support may be provided virtually for selected advisors that are not based in a corresponding host country.
All applicants must be able to demonstrate:
• Technical expertise working with NDCs, including implementation.
• Experience developing the capacity of governments related to the implementation of NDCs, utilizing local expertise.
• Experience with a partnership-based approach where different organizations work jointly to deliver work in country.
