*ROLE CAN BE BASED ANYWHERE IN ASIA
Asia-Pacific is the most vulnerable region in the world, in terms of disasters, which will be worsened by climate crisis, thus continuously posing hazards to children, particularly those who are most deprived and marginalised. Save the Children is in a strategic position to work with and for children to ensure that climate action is embedded in our programs as well as our partners’ programs, offering a distinct value proposition in the Asia-Pacific Region.
We are looking for an experienced climate change professional, with a commitment to children’s rights, who is able to think strategically about Save the Children’s potential to contribute in a more systematic and significant way to this global crisis. A strong commitment to evidence and impact is essential to help the organisation identify the right opportunities building on existing work, but also developing new proposals – working with a wide network of interested members and country offices (see below). She/he will be responsible for leading the development of a strategic approach to climate change for the Asia and Pacific Region, and scaling up climate resilience programming and advocacy, helping to position Save the Children as a leading Child Rights organizations on climate resilience.
As the regional technical expert on Climate, she/he will use their in-depth contextual understanding, technical expertise, and relationship building skills to provide a critical link between the Save the Children’s global and country level climate related work, strengthening our technical offer at the regional level. She/he will contribute to building capacity on Climate Resilience and fostering networks across country office technical experts. The role supports regional advocacy and influencing, while driving strategic partnerships for new business development. It supports the design and implementation of monitoring and evaluation systems to demonstrate impact, while sharing learning across country offices, and ensuring quality of our programmes. She/he supports the sourcing of Climate related technical assistance for country office needs in both emergency and development programming.
