Climate Change Mitigation Lead — Canada/North America

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) is currently looking for a Climate Change Mitigation Lead to join its Energy team and to grow its Canada and North America-based portfolio of work. The innovative and multi-disciplinary Energy Program is one of IISD's five core programs and seeks to support the transformation of energy policy frameworks and systems to provide greater access to low carbon energy consistent with broader development aspirations of all countries. It does so by delivering quality analytical services and pioneering research and acting as an "honest broker" between various actors, both in developed and developing countries.

The position is based in Canada, preferably in Ottawa or Toronto, but other cities could be considered. Depending on the locale, the nature of engagement, either employee or consultant will be defined as appropriate.


The Climate Change Mitigation Lead will report to the Group Director, Energy or his Designate.



Starting Date: October 2014 (estimated)
