Also Listing:

The research analyst will be based at the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) in Samoa, and play an important role in supporting work on climate-issues in the Pacific region. As a member of the Climate Analytics (CA) Team, the position will contribute to the long-standing partnership between CA and SPREP.

The Analyst’s role will be to help facilitate the delivery of a multi-year project designed to support Pacific Island Countries in engaging with international climate change negotiations processes and to connect the UNFCCC negotiations to practical actions in the region. The analyst will work closely with the project manager, other Climate Analytics colleagues, and our project partner (SPREP) to develop research, briefings and capacity building/training materials. While a broad range of climate change issues will be addressed through the project, loss and damage (L&D) and climate adaptation are likely to be of particular importance.

The consultant will be expected to provide in-person support to SPREP and Pacific Island Countries at Conferences of the Parties (COP) and Bonn inter-sessional meetings each year. Responsibilities will also include contributing to research and other tasks within the framework of other CA Projects, particularly those related to the Australia-Pacific region.
