We are proceeding on a substantial programme of work to build awareness and institutional capacity on nature-related financial risk management within African countries. This will support the transition towards a nature-positive economy and sustainable livelihoods, building on the growing evidence and calls for action such as that articulated in the Economics of Biodiversity: the Dasgupta Review.
We are therefore looking to hire a Senior Programme Manager, Risk and Resilience who would act as a thought-leader on nature-related financial risk management, involved in the design, implementation, partnership development and research associated with the topic.
In particular, this role will:
- Manage substantial aspects of our nature-related work (and other developing projects supporting similar environmental risk management). Initially heavily supportive of the FSD Africa-run project ‘Promoting an African voice for the Taskforce on Nature-related Financial Disclosures (TNFD) and nature-related financial risk management.
- Deliver an impactful advocacy and communications campaign, in collaboration with FSD Africa’s Communications team, focussed on influencing private and public-sector partners to prioritise natural capital.
