Description  

IUCN’s climate change team is part of IUCN Secretariat. The Climate team leads IUCN’s global thematic work on climate change, both to limit the future impact of climate change and to help vulnerable communities and ecosystems adapt to unavoidable climate impacts. The team engages on climate issues from multiple perspectives; from assessing the risks that climate change poses to communities and biodiversity to advocating for improved climate policy and practice; advancing Nature-based Solutions for both mitigation and adaptation centred on improved conservation, management, and restoration of natural ecosystems; and guiding climate investments to avoid maladaptation and ancillary negative impacts on biodiversity and nature-dependent livelihoods.

The CC team works as a delocalised team across several IUCN duty stations with the staff divided between its Gland-based Headquarters, Bonn, and Washington D.C. Office. The incumbent will support the Head-Climate Change and Senior Programme Officers in tasks related to the implementation of several global-scale climate change adaptation initiatives and policy processes.

The incumbent will mainly support to the implementation of the Global Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) Fund and related activities, as well as broadly contribute to IUCN’s portfolio of climate change projects, support policy related work by generating knowledge and evidence from field projects; and support coordination of networks on which IUCN’s CC Team is engaged with.
