Development of the Green Climate Fund’s Climate Fellowship Program

Development of the Green Climate Fund’s Climate Fellowship Program

The Green Climate Fund (GCF) was established by Parties to the UNFCCC at its meeting in Cancún in December 2010, and formally launched in 2011 when the Governing Instrument of the Fund was adopted and approved. The GCF aims to become the main international financial institution for the delivery of climate finance in support of mitigation and adaptation activities in developing countries. The GCF is governed and supervised by a Board that has full responsibility for funding decisions. The GCF has a Secretariat with responsibility for the executive management and operations of the Fund.
GCF’s knowledge management team is pursuing the development of a comprehensive climate fellowship program. The concept has been initiated, and the GCF is now seeking to hire a service provider/consultancy firm to lead the development of the program. The program will aim to attract and bring new exceptional talent to the GCF, such as leading practitioners, researchers, and graduates for the proposed period of 15 months to the headquarter of the GCF, in Songdo, South-Korea. The fellows will conduct research and produce high-quality knowledge products on the GCF thematic sectors. The climate fellowship is a remunerated opportunity provided by the GCF.
The fellows will work alongside their mentors who are senior subject matter experts and will support the institutional strengthening of the GCF by contributing to the thematic sector-focused work that is undertaken by the mentors and the wider secretariat of the GCF. The climate fellowship program will act as one of the key strategic initiatives to acquire leading talent for the GCF talent pool for future hires.  
The selected service provider/consultancy shall bring extensive expertise, experience and a strong track record of developing similar programs for international organizations, non-profit organisations, NGO’s, educational organisation and other entities of similar.
