    Organization: Institute for Global Environmental Strategies
    Country: Thailand
    Closing date: 31 Jul 2017

    Background

    The UNFCC regional collaboration centers (RCC) and the UNFCCC secretariat are both catalyzer and facilitators of climate action in support the implementation on NDCs at the country level. An important component is 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 of the Paris Agreement into the conduct of all relevant economic and social development activity. Further the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are inextricably linked and can only be achieved by ensuring alignment of implementation.

    As neutral intermediaries the UNFCCC RCCs have been supporting the carbon financing (i.e. via the CDM) of projects and investment in emerging and frontier markets for several years now. As carbon finance typically provides liquidity to the mature end of the project financing lifecycle, the RCCs have increasingly been asked to intervene on facilitating other sources of finance for both early and late stages of the finance cycle. They have also been called upon to help link up the worlds of development and private finance, to effectively mobilize capital at scale, source blended finance unfamiliar or difficult to access to market players. These actions in themselves often result in new and additional projects that are suitable for carbon finance. The UNFCCC RCCs and UN climate change secretariat does this by providing unbiased facilitative support to both public and private sector finance players.
    The rapidly growing landscape of the green (climate and SDG aligned) finance has created a plethora of opportunities, but also confusion as to how to most effective make use of finance. While climate-aligned and environmental financial products are on the rise, they are still relatively new to many market participants. Many entrepreneurs, financial intermediaries and central bankers are not aware of options in accessing climate finance or how best to raise green (climate aligned) debt capital finance or enable with risk sharing instruments, and many investors are not aware of the investment opportunities available in the regions.

    Role
    In this context, SDM is looking for a senior expert on green (climate & SDG aligned) finance to support, as part of a small team located in Bonn and working through the RCCs (in 5 offices. Under the guidance of the Director and direct supervision of the Programme Officer (relations management – climate finance), the consultant will contribute and further develop the work programme, including financial instruments, risk mitigation instruments, and structured finance approaches as they facilitate climate investments particularly in developing countries and regions.

    The expert may be required to attend national, regional and global workshops, networks, conferences on climate aligned investments and financing. Consultant will be based in RCC Bangkok while working closely with SDM programme, Bonn (UNFCCC Secretariat) and other RCCs. The consultant will also be required to work in Bonn on a needs basis.

    Organization: Field Ready
    Country: Iraq
    Closing date: 29 Sep 2017

    ABOUT FIELD READY

    Field Ready is a non-governmental organization that is dedicated to bringing innovation to international disaster relief. Our vision is to meet humanitarian need by transforming logistics through technology, innovative design and engaging people in new ways. In the short-term, we address humanitarian and reconstruction needs with a unique problem-solving approach. In the long-term, we are transforming the way aid is delivered worldwide. The impact of this is dramatically improving efficiency in aid delivery by meeting people’s needs wherever they are found. Field Ready is a US-based 501c3; more information can be found at www.fieldready.org.

    POSITION SUMMARY

    Field Ready has partnered with Save the Children UK and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on an innovation challenge to incentivise hand-washing in refugee camps. The challenge is supported by the Humanitarian Innovation Fund. We will be working in refugee camps in northern Iraq for up to six months from October 2017 to help start a longer research activity. We seek a full-time Iraq Technical Advisor to be based in northern Iraq to be part of a small-scale trial of this innovation.

    The role of the Iraq Technical Advisor is to design and locally make bars of soap that have toys inside them, with the aim of encouraging a behaviour change by children in the refugee camps towards more frequent hand-washing by making it fun, appealing and enjoyable even in difficult circumstances. This is a very special opportunity for someone who wants to combine the latest innovations with traditional methods to improve the health of refugees in Iraq.

    RESPONSIBILITIES

    The Iraq Technical Advisor will be responsible for the technological aspects of project implementation, including:

    · Manufacturing a novel, hygienic soap product for child handwashing that is produced locally at low cost.

    · Manufacturing an ‘incentive’ for child handwashing in the form of small toys to be placed inside each soap.

    · Tailoring the design of the novel soap product and the toys to local consumer preferences (shape, colour, size, smell, toy design) using rapid prototyping and human-centred design, and by drawing on and engaging in a participatory process with beneficiaries that is facilitated by Field Ready’s Iraq Innovation Advisor.

    · Delivering the above with a view towards suitability for humanitarian WASH responses in general (i.e.: future large scale production, easy and quick distribution, designs easily adapted to suit different cultural contexts including outside of Iraq, cost-effectiveness in different supply chain contexts such as urban or rural).

    · Establishing local production capacity that can manufacture the soaps beyond the small-scale trial, including engaging in market and capability assessments, training and capacity building activities.

    · Responding quickly to input from partners and Field Ready personnel on design and manufacturing ideas and issues.

    · Assuring quality, not only in terms of effective soap and incentivising child handwashing but also in terms of rigorous safety standards and national and international regulatory compliance for both product and the production process.

    · Providing robust evidence, documentation and other support or information as may be required by the longer-term research activity, including on designs, user feedback, local markets, costs, regulatory requirements and so on.

    · Working closely with the partners as a representative of Field Ready and the project (i.e.: reporting, meetings etc).

    · Participating in Field Ready’s team and systems, including occasional support for the establishment of a wider Field Ready ongoing programme in Iraq beyond this first project in the country.

    We expect 500 bars of soap with toys to be made during this small-scale trial, for use both by children and also to promote wider uptake of the innovation within the sector. Maintaining a clean manufacturing environment to ensure no contaminations, in compliance with relevant local standards, will be important. Provision has been made for: equipment and materials for soap production; computer, 3D modelling software and 3D Printers to prototype and produce the toys; printing etc for packaging for the soap and associated information materials; local staff support including translators. Field Ready shares its designs online using an open licence when we decide that they have become ‘field ready’ for use by others, but we take steps to ensure the proper attribution of individual contributors to the designs.

    Several important responsibilities for working in Iraq have already been identified, including: the need to work in more than one camp to ensure support to different cultural groups; the need to potentially re-use existing commercial soap material that has been approved by the government, as well as making our own soap; and public communication approval processes. Other important requirements for operating in Iraq may arise during the project, and the Iraq Technical Advisor will responsible for meeting these as well.

    QUALIFICATIONS & CHARACTERISTICS

    An effective Iraq Technical Advisor will combine the relevant technical know-how required for this project with excellent interpersonal skills and an ability to ‘get things done’ under challenging conditions.

    Required:

    · First rate ‘maker’; hands-on and practical.

    · Excellent technical problem solving abilities.

    · Knowledge of a variety of manufacturing or making processes.

    · Ability to engage in (very) rapid prototyping techniques.

    · Excellent 3D CAD Design and modelling experience, either for engineering/manufacturing or animation.

    · Hands-on experience with consumer-level 3D Printers and plastic 3D Printing processes.

    · Awareness of a range of online platforms for 3D design file sharing (for toys and moulds etc).

    · Knowledge of making soap, particularly using local / natural materials.

    · Excellent interpersonal skills (demonstrated, say, in a hospitality/service experience or other key client facing role).

    · Consummate self-starter but also a close listener and team player.

    · Experience working, living or travelling in the region and other developing country contexts.

    · Commitment to Field Ready’s vision and mission and to recognised humanitarian principles and codes of practice.

    Preferred:

    · Bachelors’ or Masters’ degree in engineering, design, manufacturing or other relevant qualifications.

    · Humanitarian sector training and prior humanitarian or development field experience.

    · Experience with design specifically for 3D Printing.

    · Experience with making soap, particularly using local / natural materials.

    · Knowledge of chemistry, in particular of saponification.

    · Knowledge of scent and colour additives, particularly using local / natural sources.

    · Experience with regulatory, safety, hygiene and quality issues (e.g., in any highly regulated or high volume industry such as pharmaceuticals, aerospace, food, theatre/public performance technical crew, etc).

    · Strong connections in the maker community with willingness to use those connections.

    · Good analytical, writing and presentation skills – able to communicate complicated/technical issues with accuracy.

    · Prior training or capacity building delivery experience.

    Background

    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. The promotion and support typically provided includes the demand-side tasks:

    · Assisting governments to actively promote low carbon and climate resilient investments in their countries and disseminate information on their enabling investment environments to investors and other market players;

    · Make it easier for financiers to find markets, identify co-financiers to form consortia, access project development funding to support investment-mature projects, and provide access to risk mitigation instruments and help structure projects and financing;

    · Helping to provide project owners with increased visibility for their projects among financiers and other market players, making it easier to identify relevant financiers, advisors, service providers for specific needs including through targeted engagements and convening of regional or national green investment catalyst roundtables (GIC-RTs);

    · Working with financial institutions (often together with commercial banks, financial intermediaries, bilateral funds, regional, multilateral development banks and the Green Climate Fund) on mobilizing private capital, assisting on guarantee and credit enhancement, launching if support platforms for finance and investment and designing climate, green and sustainable loan and investment frameworks and procedures.

    Role

    In this context, through RCC Bangkok the Sustainable Development Mechanism (SDM) programme of UN Climate Change is seeking an expert in the promotion and support of sustainable finance. The expert will form part of a small team responsible for sustainable finance action for all RCCs on demand-side finance and investment promotion and support. The expert will work under the guidance of the Director and Manager SDM and direct supervision of the Programme Officer. The expert will be contracted by RCC Bangkok partner IGES and required to be located at any of the RCCs and in Bonn as required.

    Functions

    As per the mandates provided by the CDM Executive Board and for the Global Climate Action work on finance, in cooperation with teams and partners, the function includes:

    a. Facilitate contact networks in the related industrial and financial community (solutions from new and existing public and private financing partners including MDBs, IFIs, commercial, regional and national development banks, foundations, donors, national governments and institutional investors);
