Job Announcement: Various Positions for Green Climate Fund Readiness Project

GREEN CLIMATE FUND READINESS PROJECT - CAMBODIA

Closing date: 20 January 2019, 17:00         

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is a new global fund created to support the efforts of developing countries to respond to the challenge of climate change. GCF helps developing countries limit or reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change. The Royal Government of Cambodia has successfully accessed GCF Readiness support directly to develop the procedures and human capacities required to adequately manage the partnership with the GCF, and coordinate inputs from various stakeholders. The National Council for Sustainable Development (NCSD) is supporting the National Designated Authority for the GCF in Cambodia, in charge of coordinating and approving the GCF portfolio in-country.

The Department of Climate Change (DCC) within the General Secretariat of NCSD (GSSD) is coordinating the implementation of the proposed activities under the readiness project, which will help the Government to manage these demands in a way that is consistent with national strategies and plans (CCCSP, NSDP), and at the same time meets the requirements of the initial investment framework of the GCF.

The project is organized around two outcomes, focused respectively on i) strengthening of the NDA (in line with NDA functions required by GCF) and ii) development of an engagement framework and country programme with GCF.

GSSD is recruiting the following positions to provides overall management and technical support services to the project, under the supervision of the designated project manager in DCC.
