As an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, owned by the German government, operates on behalf of German Ministries, the governments of other countries and international clients. GIZ has a record of more than 60 years working in Thailand. As part of GIZ Thailand’s Environment and Climate Cluster, we are currently looking for a Climate Finance Officer to support the implementation of climate finance activities.
Climate Finance Officer
Thai-German cooperation on climate change started with its first joint projects in 2008 and up until now Thailand has already taken substantial steps both in the field of climate change mitigation and adaptation. In the area of climate change policy development, GIZ works closely with the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) as the main political partner and in cooperation with other key line agencies on improving the climate change policy environment and enabling the implementation of these policies at the national and subnational level. The Climate Change Master Plan (CCMP) and National Adaptation Plan (NAP) as well as the international commitments outlined in Thailand’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) serve as the guiding framework for the support. To ensure successful implementation and achieve meaningful progress towards Thailand’s ambitious climate change goals, significant financial resources and innovative financing mechanisms will be required. However, substantial gaps still exist with regards to the Climate Finance environment for Thailand, including access to national and international climate finance resources such as the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the systematic involvement of private sector stakeholders, be it from the financial or business sectors, in climate change programs. In addition, challenges remain in the identification and development of bankable projects and viable business models for climate change investments.
The Thai-German Climate Programme (TGCP), the Risk-based National Adaptation Plan project (Risk-NAP) and the GIZ implemented projects through GCF Readiness funding, are actively engaged in this area of support and are currently seeking to strengthen their Climate Finance team further in particular with regards to public finance aspects, effective private sector engagement and the preparation of national institutions for access to the GCF. We are an integrated team of national and international climate and environmental policy analysts, as well as political scientists and are now seeking for an interested candidate to complement the team preferably with a background of climate finance, including grant and non-grant financial instruments.
We are looking for a candidate who preferably possesses the following qualifications and experiences (or the equivalent of):
This will be a fixed-term contract, starting as soon as possible and running until December 2021.
Please submit your application and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is December 17, 2019. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted. GIZ Thailand is an equal opportunity employer and actively encourages gender diversity within the company and operations.
