International Organisation hiring Strategic Partnerships Project Manager

Brussels, Belgium, 11 December 2017

Field of activity

Climate change is a global challenge that requires a decisive and confident response from all major economies, which account for some 80% of global emissions. The EU as a key proponent of international action is committed to sustain cooperation and build partnerships and alliances towards achieving internationally agreed climate objectives.

The project objectives are to (1) Facilitate the exchange of climate policy options and good practices between the EU and non-European major economies with a view to enable policy changes; (2) Advance bilateral cooperation and investment in pursuit of the goals of the Paris Agreement and of Nationally-Determined Contributions, and (3) Contribute to improve public awareness, including by the business community, of challenges and opportunities associated with the implementation of the Paris Agreement. The project will focus on stepping up upstream policy collaboration along four thematic axes: mitigation policy instruments, mid-century strategies/renewal of nationally determined contributions to the Paris Agreement, climate transparency and adaptation planning.
