The position is part of the Colombo-based Implementation Team which will be responsible for: (i) defining and implementing the intervention strategy; (ii) overall project coordination and monitoring; (iii) stakeholder’s information and consultation; and (iv) the administrative and financial management of the project.
The Green Funding Mobilisation Specialist will be part of the team based in Colombo. She/he will take the lead in the implementation of all activities directly related to supporting the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) in developing a pipeline of Green projects and, more broadly speaking, increasing the access of the public to Green funding. She/he will also lead the implementation of all activities related to increasing and facilitating the access of the private sector to sustainable finance. Indicative tasks to be carried out would include:
The EU Green Recovery Facility seeks to use the current economic crisis as an opportunity to support Sri Lanka towards a more sustainable growth trajectory. The ultimate goal would entail achieving a green (and blue) economy that is circular, carbon neutral, and socially inclusive; which, not only, would be more respectful of biodiversity resources and socio-economic/demographic context, but would also provide much needed macroeconomic stability.
In this context, the project would harness policy experiences and knowledge from the EU (e.g. the European Green Deal), along national and regional ones, to contribute to the inclusive green recovery (medium term) and transition (long term) of the Sri-Lankan economy and society.
Sri-Lankan based stakeholders point out the abundance of policy instruments, but regret the lack of implementation of these given policies.
In this context, the Project would more specifically support the mainstreaming of IGE challenges and objectives in the Sri Lankan policy landscape, as well as the facilitation of bringing IGE policy to action by contributing to the following specific objectives (SO):
The specific objectives are designed to complement each other at different levels of implementation, considering the needs emerging from the current context in the country. Together, these three specific objectives should contribute to address Sri Lanka’s challenges for effective IGE policy reform and implementation. The Project should perform a catalytic function on several sides – public sector as well as private sector and civil society organizations (CSOs) – as designed via SO1 to SO3.
Bachelors’ degree in Engineering, Environment, Development Economics, Business Administration or equivalent. Any other profile in line with the tasks to be performed can also be considered.
A Master’s degree would be a strong asset.
