International Organisation hiring Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate Mitigation
Eschborn, Germany, 11 April 2016
Field of activity
The Water and Wastewater Companies for Climate Mitigation (WaCCliM) is a global programme supporting water and wastewater utilities in Mexico, Peru, Thailand and Jordan to improve their carbon balance through climate friendly technologies while decreasing operational costs by maintaining or expanding services. The key objectives of the programme are to integrate greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction technologies such as energy efficiency, water loss reduction, energy and nutrient recovery into the operations of selected water and wastewater utilities; to improve political and institutional framework conditions for the use and financing of greenhouse gas reduction technologies; and to develop international guidelines for improving the carbon balance of utilities. A key aspect of the programme is the successful replication of the pilot projects in the countries through the development of innovative climate financing mechanisms for smart investment to support the utilities path towards carbon neutrality. The programme is implemented in direct cooperation with the International Water Association (IWA).
The focus of your responsibility is to provide technical support to WaCCliM countries. Your activities include the following tasks:
Backstopping of project activities to reduce emissions in utilities
Advising on the establishment of financing mechanisms to promote the implementation of GHG reduction technologies in the partner countries (e.g. performance/service contracting, integration into national programmes, revolving funds)
Providing policy advice to responsible institutions/ministries on the development of energy and resource efficiency strategies, guidelines, standards and regulations to create the conditions and incentives for the climate friendly operation of water and wastewater utilities
International research in the field of financing mechanisms for GHG reduction in the water sector and preparing the results for advisery in partner countries
Preparation and implementation of awareness-raising and capacity development measures in the topic of financing mechanisms for GHG reduction in the water sector
Monitoring, evaluation and reporting in line with GIZ and partners requirements
Public relations and representation of the project at the international level, with regards to other donors and external partners
Networking with international actors in the field of climate financing including the private sector
Submission Deadline: 22 April 2015
