Global South Africa 

Fundación Avina is looking for a Development Consultant to serve as Regional Focal Point in Africa to the Project “Global Cooperation for Climate Action: southern engagement with climate negotiations and commitments 2020-2023”. The consultancy will run from May 2021 until April 2024 and the consultant will be responsible for building  effective connections between the global coordination and national stakeholders of four African countries. Experience in climate governance and fluency in French and English required.  


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 may 1st 2021 and 1st April 2024. 


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. 


Curriculum Vitae in English, including indication of one contact for recommendation/reference, shall be sent to until April 16th.
