Working hours:Monday to Friday reporting in the office from 8.30 a.m. to 5.00 P.M
Supervisor:Resilient People, Society and Economies Thematic Lead
Duration of Contract: One-year renewable contract subject on satisfactory performance
Duty station: PACJA Secretariat, Nairobi Kenya
PACJA (Pan African Climate Justice Alliance) is a consortium of more than 2000 organizations from 48 African countries, and brings together a diverse membership drawn from Faith-based Organizations, Community-based organizations, Non-Governmental organizations, Trusts, Foundations, Indigenous Communities, Farmers, and Pastoralist Groups with a shared vision to advance a people-centered, rights-based, equitable, just and inclusive approach to climate response. The tremendous growth of the Alliance membership and mandate has necessitated a rethink of its governance, which seeks to accord more role to its base at the sub-national/national level by establishing National Platforms that will henceforth serve as Pillars of mobilization in countries and sub-national levels. This is consistent with the Paris Agreement and Agenda 2030, which underscores people and local communities’ role in achieving their stated goals.
PACJA’s Programme mirrors three thematic areas, namely Resilient People Societies and Economies (ReSPE), Just Transition and Energy Access (JTEA), and Climate Finance (CF). PACJA works with people at the frontline of climate change, especially women in rural settings, and believes that environmental and climate justice will be achieved only if governments recognize the right to justice and respond with policies, resources, and actions to meet the needs and aspirations of their citizens and that vulnerable groups such as women, indigenous peoples (Ips), youth, people living with disabilities (PWDs), must be included in all aspects of decision-making processes especially in climate financing and in climate information and services (CIS).
The “BUILD” project
The African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) and its partners: PATH Foundation Philippines, Inc (PFPI), Leadership for Environment and Development (LEAD), Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) and FHI360, are implementing a project titled Building Capacity for Integrated FP/RH and PED Action (BUILD) with funding from USAID. BUILD brings together southern leadership and organizations from Africa, Asia, and USA that, together, have proven technical expertise in promoting cross-sectoral interventions in Population-Environment-Development (PED) and in advocating for voluntary family planning (FP) and capacity strengthening. The BUILD program will strengthen individual and institutional capacity in advocacy, policy communications, and negotiations and increase commitment for cross-sectoral approaches to integrate population, the environment and climate change, food security and livelihoods, and governance. In this regard, PACJA is recruiting a competent project officer to execute the PACJA’s component in the project.
