We seek a Climate Action Enhancement Package (CAEP) Program Manager who will support the end-to end process of CAEP to deliver targeted, fast-track support to countries to enhance the quality, increase the ambition, and implement nationally determined contributions. You will be an integral part of the CAEP team and will support the work of other directors for Country Engagement and Knowledge. You will report to the Deputy Director of Governance, Communications and Special Initiatives.
The Climate Action Enhancement Package (abbreviated CAEP, pronounced “cap”) is a new offering of the NDC Partnership designed to deliver targeted, fast-track support to countries to enhance the quality, increase the ambition, and implement nationally determined contributions (or NDCs).
The CAEP is designed to catalyze transformational change towards resilient, sustainable, and low-emission development, supporting the objectives of the Paris Agreement for member countries of the NDC Partnership.
The CAEP assists developing countries in achieving two overarching objectives:
- Enhance NDCs, including by raising ambition, as part of the Paris Agreement’s NDC update process;
- Fast-track implementation of NDCs, including by providing in-country technical expertise and capacity building.
The CAEP will allow beneficiary countries to submit updated NDCs to the UNFCCC by 2020 as well as accelerate NDC implementation.
CAEP will deliver support to countries through existing support programs from its institutional and associate members and through a dedicated Technical Assistance Fund that will deploy financing in cases where existing support is not enough to meet needs identified by countries. The Technical Assistance Fund is a pooled funding mechanism with contributions from multiple development partners which will allocate resources to institutional and associate members of the Partnership to respond to NDC updating and implementation requests.
