WEC Background

UNOPS Water and Energy Cluster (WEC) supports the design and management of multi-stakeholder initiatives by providing services in financial and grant management, procurement, human resources, and project management. The cluster has supported projects in the areas of water resource management, climate change adaptation, mitigation and transparency, energy access and distribution, and environmental conservation under the Paris Agreement. The WEC has also supported operations and financial management services, in Vienna, the rest of the ECR region, and beyond. The main partners include UN agencies, bilateral agreements (with the Nordics, Germany, and Italy), the Green Climate Fund, and several NGOs (such as CIFF and CWF).

NDC Partnerships Project background

The NDC Partnership advances the goals of the Paris Agreement by bringing together countries and institutions in new ways to accelerate NDC implementation and enhance ambition over time. Through a country-driven approach, the NDC Partnership drives climate action and sustainable development while supporting countries in reducing social and economic inequalities. The Partnership responds flexibly to country needs as they evolve, keeping the momentum for strong climate action even in the challenging economic circumstances countries face today.

Since its inception in 2016, the NDC Partnership has grown into a global coalition with more than 190 members made up of developed and developing countries, international institutions, and non-state actors.

The Partnership is designed as a multi-partner initiative where members collaborate to accelerate climate action. Membership is voluntary, and by joining the NDC Partnership members gain access to a global network of knowledge and resources to support their work in climate action.

To date, almost 80 developing countries engage through the Partnership to identify needs and requests to implement and enhance their NDCs while advancing sustainable development. Over 120 development partners, bi- and multilateral agencies as well as big CSOs align to support those requests in a coordinated and coherent manner. 

The Partnership is governed by a Steering Committee that is co-chaired by two country representatives. The Support Unit (SU) serves as the Secretariat of the NDC Partnership.

Under the overall guidance of the UNOPS Project Management Support Specialist, and in coordination with the UNOPS Head of Programme and the Head of Support Services, the incumbent  is responsible for performing a variety of administrative processes, supporting the UNOPS Support Unit/NDC Partnership Team Leader and the SU-UNOPS team, with high quality and accuracy of work.
