The Communications Assistant Consultant will integrate the Executive Team to the Project and respond directly to the Project Leader and Fundación Avina. The professional will lead the communications strategy of the project, facilitating learning, dissemination of information and impact at national and global levels.

The project “Global Cooperation for Climate Action: southern engagement with climate negotiations and commitments 2020-2023” aims to increase knowledge and capacities to enhance climate action in developing countries, strengthening their engagement with the Paris Agreement “ambition cycle” in a way that is reflected at the 2023 Global Stocktake. It pursues the main goal by strengthening the role played by new agents for action (young, mostly women) through research and training.
The project is founded by the International Development Research Center (IDRC) and will be implemented by Fundación Avina between March 1st 2021 and 30th April 2024 (38 months) in 6 countries from Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean (to be defined).

The project is designed in a cyclical process with four separate components: First, research synthesis of available climate knowledge and capacities on specific topics; second, capacity-building through virtual trainings; third, strengthening leaders in the development of climate solutions; and fourth, ensuring the participation of researchers and leaders in global climate governance forums, such as COPs.
