As the Transformation and Development Lead for Africa, you will play a key role in developing and implementing the Africa programme, in close collaboration with the Africa Director and colleagues within the Climate Champions Team both across Africa and globally.
This includes cultivating and managing relationships with non-state actors, in particular the finance and business communities within and across all segments of the continent, to mobilise and accelerate ambition, action and impact.
With a strong track record of engagement, a deep understanding of development finance, system transformation for climate action and strong networks across Africa, you will help deliver systems breakthroughs and build robust partnerships that elevate and amplify climate action and leadership amongst non-state actors to achieve the Paris Agreement goals as fast as possible.
With implementation at the core of the Champions work, you will help engage with financial actors to help unlock the flow of climate finance into climate action. Comprehension of climate finance, carbon markets and nature based solutions would be a plus as this will be key in the implementation of our climate action strategy.
