For countries to achieve the mitigation and adaptation commitments outlined in their NDCs, they need access to climate finance. For this reason, the NDC Partnership has identified finance as one of its key focus areas for country engagement and knowledge sharing. The Partnership’s Work Program envisages convening countries around NDC finance issues, publishing case studies and other reports, mobilizing technical assistance and project financing, and proactively engaging with member institutions with expertise in this field.
In this role, you will play a vital role in shaping and executing the Partnership’s upcoming new Finance Strategy. Reporting directly to the Knowledge and Learning Director, you will work closely with staff across the NDC Partnership Support Unit. In addition to the responsibilities outlined below, you will have room for innovative ideas and the opportunity to engage with climate finance stakeholders from the NDC Partnership member countries, development banks, private investors, national and multilateral climate funds, and think tanks. This is a role for a creative, entrepreneurial individual.
This position is remote due to Covid-19, but you will be based at WRI’s office in Washington, DC or in Bonn, Germany once restrictions have lifted.

The NDC Partnership is a global coalition that works with national governments, international institutions and civil society, to fast-track climate and development action. To date, the Partnership’s membership is at 193 members and growing, including 114 countries, 43 institutions, and 36 associate members. Through the Partnership, members leverage their resources and expertise to provide countries with the tools they need to implement their NDCs in order to combat climate change and build a better future. In 2015, the world endorsed the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These historic accords presented countries with an unprecedented opportunity to align the climate and sustainable development agendas to spur economic growth and improve the livelihoods of all people. Nations signal their commitments to the Paris Agreement through Nationally Determined Contributions (or NDCs) - each country's strategy to cut its own greenhouse gas emissions and build resiliency against the negative effects of a changing climate.
