Manager, Global Clean Air at Environmental Defense Fund

Program Overview

EDF’s Health Program is committed to improving the public’s health by dramatically reducing exposures and disproportionate health impacts of toxic chemicals and air pollution that increase the risk of disease and death. We work on a range of legislative, regulatory, scientific, and market-oriented projects aimed at improving chemical safety and air quality. EDF has also long been a leader in reducing air pollution in the United States by strengthening and defending health-based policies, promoting market-based incentives, and building a broad based, grassroots advocacy campaign through our partner, Moms Clean Air Force. In recent years, we have expanded our efforts to harness new air pollution sensing tools and technologies to tackle air pollution within cities around the world. EDF is working with a diverse network of researchers, companies, advocacy partners, and government officials to scale new air pollution monitoring and mapping technologies to advance our understanding of health impacts, and empower local actors to identify, advocate for, and implement clean air policies around the world.

Overall Function

The Manager will oversee development and implementation of key aspects of this program, develop partnerships, and foster collaboration among NGO’s, agencies and partners, with the overall goal of leading teams to collect, analyze, interpret, and ultimately disseminate scientifically robust air quality information. Under the leadership of the Director of Program Operations, Health, this position uses experience and knowledge to independently guide and manage air quality data collection and policy projects in a variety of global locations. Specifically, this role will include management of the science elements of the Source Awareness Module in the USAID Clean Air Catalyst (CAC) project.
