1.2 Background and scope

This position is recruited as a secondment from Global Resilience Partnership into Race to Resilience Climate Champions Team from June/July 2022 to April 2023.

This position is full time but split in a complementary fashion between support to Climate Champions Team on story-telling/narrative building (3 days/week) and providing support to Resilience Hub at COP27 on Race to Resilience partnership engagement (2 days/week). 

The Climate Champions Team provides support to the UNFCCC High Level Climate Champions to deliver on the mandate from Parties: to drive climate action and enhance ambition by non-state actors. Working with the Marrakech Partnership and other partners, we mobilise businesses, investors, cities, regions and civil society and act as a bridge between non-state actors and national governments to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement. At COP26, the two serving High Level Climate Champions launched a five year plan to deliver on the mandate from Parties. It sets out objectives and details of the tools employed to achieve them, across six key functions for the work of the Climate Champions Team for the period 2021 - 2025.

The global team is resourced to support the major campaigns Race to Zero, Race to Resilience, Glasgow Finance Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ), as well as sector-focused systems transformation using the Climate Action Pathways, and 2030 Breakthroughs. Alongside this, we are continuing to strengthen the accountability mechanisms of the campaigns and assess the overall state of systems transformation as we prepare to support the global stocktake. 

COP27 offers a unique moment to drive transformational change, scaling action for climate-vulnerable communities, and mobilising finance to developing and emerging economies, to move from ambition to implementation and halve global emissions and protect four billion people from climate impacts by 2030.

Outreach and Engagement will work alongside the sector leads to identify and integrate their contribution to climate resilience as well as engaging with key partners to enhance resilience strategies along their work. It is a role that provides an opportunity to work at what is arguably the most pressing challenge in the world today, and it will suit you if you are mission driven and thrive in fast-paced, ever-evolving and diverse teams.

Background (GRP)

The Global Resilience Partnership (GRP) is a diverse partnership of more than 60 organisations joining forces to build a resilient future where vulnerable people and places are able to thrive in the face of shocks, uncertainty and change. GRP believes that resilience underpins sustainable development in an increasingly unpredictable world. By bringing together a broad range of actors from different organisations and sectors, GRP creates a platform for sharing best practices and promoting learning from each other.
