Many countries lack the tools and well-designed institutional arrangements to comprehensively assess the impacts of national climate policies and actions. There is no common methodological framework to measure, report and verify progress.

In response to the call to support improved transparency and capacity building under the Paris Agreement, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF) and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) in 2015 founded the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT). In early 2016 ICAT was joined by the Italian Ministry of the Environment (IMELS) and ClimateWorks Foundation.

ICAT provides policymakers around the world with tools and support to measure and assess the impacts of their climate actions. Working initially with 20 developing countries, ICAT aims to help governments build capacity to measure the effects of their policies and report progress publicly. This will foster greater transparency, effectiveness, trust and ambition in climate policies worldwide. The initiative will improve the availability and quality of data and enable countries to promote efficient, cost-effective policies. ICAT will also provide a platform for countries to share lessons learned and build mutual confidence in their climate actions.

Under the overall guidance of the ECR WEC, and in coordination with the ICAT Director, the incumbent  is responsible for supporting the funds/grants/project management and facilitating delivery of the Initiative, hosted by UNOPS. This includes functions such as supporting effective portfolio coordination, oversight, financial reporting and operations management, serving as the operational focal point for the Initiative.

The incumbent will liaise with the ECR WEC team to help ensure rapid and compliant delivery of all aspects of the programme, to include administration, procurement, human resources, and finance.  This includes liaising with the Initiative Director to ensure the effective day-to-day management of the Initiative, including grants management activities required by the Initiative.
