Apply to become a Locally-led Climate Action Specialist at GCF. Deadline 25th June 2023

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) Division of Mitigation and Adaptation (DMA) seeks a Specialist to support the origination and appraisal of projects and programmes contributing to promoting climate actions at the local level and Enhancing Direct Access (EDA). This position will report to the Manager (SAP/PPF/EDA) and closely work with the climate impact leads, senior specialists, climate investment managers, regional managers and project officers in DMA, the Private Sector Facility (PSF), the Division of Country Programming (DCP) and the Division of Portfolio Management (DPM).

This position will significantly contribute to enhancing locally-led climate projects, especially in adaptation and through direct access entities, in particular in Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) and African countries. The specialist will fill the current gap in supporting the GCF in programming climate finance appropriately towards locally-led climate actions, which are critical to achieving long-term impact, especially in relation to adaptation actions.

Overall, the Specialist will be responsible for supporting direct access to GCF resources for national and subnational entities and local actors who play a crucial role in supporting the development of a pipeline of projects and programmes that promote locally-led climate adaptation and mitigation actions by working closely with the GCF accredited entities and relevant partners. The Specialist will also promote capacity building, encourage country ownership, and ensure sustainable development practices are integrated into project implementation.
