The Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) requests Expressions of Interest from individual consultants in order to execute and implement high level services in accordance with developing and implementing GCAs Locally Led Action on Adaptation Program.
The Global Center on Adaptation (GCA) is an organization that works as a solutions broker to catalyze action and support for adaptation solutions, from the international to the local, in partnership with the public and private sector, to ensure we learn from each other and work together for a climate resilient future. Adapting to impacts of climate change provides a “win-win” for livelihoods, food security, water supply, health, security, and economic growth. The work of the GCA elevates the visibility and political importance of climate adaptation and facilitates solutions, such as smarter investments, new technologies and better planning to become more resilient to climate related threats. GCA is a rapidly growing organization with offices in Abidjan, Beijing, Dhaka, Groningen, and Rotterdam.
GCA’s cross-cutting Program on Locally-Led Adaptation aims to unlock, support and leverage the enormous potential and the creativity of individuals and communities to develop solutions based on their experiences with local manifestations of climate change impacts. As a consequence, adaptation action is expected be more effective, and more accountable to communities. The LLA Program is spearheaded by the GCA South Asia regional office and will be increasingly integrated in other GCA Programs, such as the Water and Urban Program and the Africa Adaptation Acceleration Program (AAAP) in collaboration with the AfDB. In this work, partnerships with a wide network of local and national actors is paramount. The Senior Advisor will help mobilizing – and provide guidance to – such partnerships, including the LDC Universities Consortium on Climate Change (LUCCC).
The Senior Advisor will provide strategic direction and technical backstopping on locally-led adaptation action globally, particularly mobilizing support and commitments for the successful implementation of the Africa Adaptation Acceleration Program jointly developed and implemented by the Global Center on Adaptation and the African Development Bank.
