The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of 37 member countries, that works to build better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.  Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards, and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.

 

The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation that provides authoritative analysis, data, policy recommendations, and real-world solutions to help countries provide secure and sustainable energy for all. It operates as an autonomous body within the framework of the OECD. Since 2015, the IEA has opened its doors to major emerging countries to expand its global impact, including through its Clean Energy Transitions Programme.

 

The IEA seeks an Energy and Environment Policy Analyst to join a small team of enthusiastic professionals reporting to the Head of the Environment and Climate Change Unit (ECC) in the Energy and Environment Division (EED). The ECC team works on analysis of the linkages and interplay between energy, climate and environmental policy, as well as analysis to support the design and evaluation of policy instruments to effectively address GHG emissions and other environmental challenges associated with energy production and consumption.

 
 Main Responsibilities
  • Participate in qualitative and quantitative analysis of national energy, environment and climate policies, and producing written outputs based on the analysis.
  • Lead analytical work in a particular energy and environment work area (depending on expertise), including in the context of national sustainable recovery efforts.
  • Contribute to other analysis, such as on the interaction of energy and environmental policies (climate, air quality, water), and the resilience of the energy sector to climate impacts.
  • Participate in the IEA’s work on tracking and assessing policy progress in a range of areas (mitigation, resilience, sustainable recovery).
  • Lead or support co-ordination of cross-Agency projects related to energy, climate and environment, such as in the context of the IEA Clean Energy Transitions Programme (CETP).
  • Promote the work of the Agency externally to a wide range of audiences.
