The UNFCCC/RCC Kampala is seeking to recruit highly competent, motivated and professional individuals to fill the position of short-term (6 months) Senior Expert for Sustainable Finance Promotion & Support.
The UN Climate Change and its regional collaboration centers (RCC) are supporting efforts to substantially scale up finance and investment in contributing to the objectives of the Paris Agreement, to integrate as rapidly as possible, the goals described by Articles 2, 4.1, and 7.1 into the conduct of all relevant economic and social development activities at the country level. An important part of this support is project level and programme finance that is aligned with the long term of objectives of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
UN Climate Change and RCC has a long history of providing promotion and support for climate mitigation projects in emerging and frontier markets, particularly in carbon finance – and as neutral intermediaries are increasingly asked to facilitate all stages of the project finance cycle. This has increased the sharing of experience, reduced barriers to access finance and lowered entry costs. It has also attracted new investors and helped finance stranded projects, helped launch new funds and credit enhancements, and matched up carbon finance.
