World Wildlife Fund (WWF-US), one of the world’s leading environment organizations, seeks a Senior Program Officer (SPO) for its Green Climate Fund (GCF) Accredited Entity (AE) unit, part of the WWF-US Climate Team. The Green Climate Fund (GCF) is the world’s largest dedicated fund helping developing countries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and enhance their ability to respond to climate change in line with the Paris Agreement. Based on specialized fiduciary and programming expertise, accredited entities partner with GCF and developing countries to carry out activities that include the development of GCF funding proposals and the management and monitoring of projects and programs funded by the GCF. Working closely with other members of the GCF Accredited Entity unit and other teams across WWF (including staff from finance, legal, safeguards and operations), the SPO engages and coordinates national governments, donor country agencies, private sector entities and WWF Offices in oversight of their execution of medium-sized ($50m-$250m) GCF projects in Bhutan and others that will come online in Latin America over the next year. These projects are focused on assisting national governments and local partner organizations to address climate change adaptation and mitigation challenges within protected area systems through a Project Finance for Permanence (PFP) approach.
