The Adaptation Fund has launched a new USD 10 million pilot small grants programme (Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator, AFCIA) to foster innovation in adaptation in developing countries at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP25) in Madrid. Two of the Adaptation Fund’s accredited Multilateral Implementing Entities (MIEs), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), have been selected as implementing entities of the AFCIA. The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) works in conjunction with UNEP, receiving USD 5 million to administrate and aggregate 25 micro-grants projects (up to USD 250,000 each).
Chief of Party Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo
The Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) seeks a Chief of Party (COP). The Chief of Party will provide overall leadership, management and general technical direction for the anticipated public-private partnership project. The CoP will supervise key project staff and ensure compliance to private partner expectations and requirements, donor rules and regulations, JGI and government policies.
The position will require most of the work time to be spent in a very isolated rural and undeveloped zone of eastern DRC. Accommodation, travel and living conditions may be difficult and may vary over time. Challenging partners and stakeholders may require flexible and time consuming support, coaching and assistance. At least 50% of the time would be in Walikale and Lubutu.
