World Wildlife Fund (WWF), one of the world’s leading conservation organizations, seeks a Program Officer, Green Climate Fund.
World Wildlife Fund-United States (WWF-US), one of the world’s leading environment organizations, seeks a Program Officer (PO) for its Green Climate Fund (GCF) Accredited Entity (AE) unit, part of the WWF-US Climate Team. As an accredited entity to the GCF, WWF works to bring innovative and transformational projects featuring large-scale, nature-based solutions that protect, restore and manage ecosystems to enhance adaptation and reduce emissions, as well as providing other benefits. The WWF-US GCF Accredited Entity unit is the designated entity within the WWF network managing the relationship with the GCF Secretariat. The unit is tasked with overseeing the development, implementation and evaluation of programs and projects under WWF’s GCF partnership and ensuring compliance with GCF policies and WWF standards throughout the project cycle. The GCF Accredited Entity unit is part of the broader WWF-US Climate Team, one of six goal teams within WWF-US collectively working to conserve nature and reduce the most pressing threats to the diversity of life on Earth.
Working closely with other members of the GCF Accredited Entity unit and other teams across WWF (including staff from finance, legal, safeguards and operations) – as well as third party contractors (‘project developers’) supporting GCF-related tasks on behalf of WWF – the PO will support the GCF unit with a variety of key portfolio management and operational tasks to support WWF’s partnership with the GCF, namely: (i) tracking/managing WWF’s pipeline of projects for the GCF across all phases of the project cycle (idea origination to project closure); (ii) planning and scheduling unit meetings, events and field missions; (iii) assembling and refining project documents for submission to the GCF secretariat in compliance with GCF and WWF standards; (iv) assisting with quality assurance, oversight and implementation support tasks for GCF projects where needed; and (v) coordinating WWF’s responses to GCF inquiries, events and policy changes.
