Global Climate Finance Established in January 2017, RMI’s Global Climate Finance program aims to create an efficient system for mobilizing and delivering climate finance to the geographies that need it most, while advancing the next generation of innovative climate finance instruments. In addition to providing climate finance expertise across RMI programs, the Global Climate Finance team leads several initiatives:   Green Investment Banks (GIBs) :  this initiative supports the development of green investment banks in emerging economies. These national institutions offer a replicable model for climate-smart development that utilizes public finance to mobilize private investment. RMI is working to ensure that emerging countries have access to the information, technical assistance, and capital required to develop GIBs.   Climate Finance Access Service (CFAS) : this initiative aims to create a network of climate finance professionals working in low-income countries to access and structure finance for mitigation and adaptation investments. Recruited and trained in cohorts, CFAS fellows would work directly in host-country governments for a two-year term. RMI is currently scoping the concept for this program, which if successful, could ultimately be spun out into an independent entity.       Results Based Climate Finance : this initiative seeks to promote auctioned carbon price floors, an innovative climate finance instrument that uses auctions to allocate finance for technologies that are most efficient at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. RMI has published an article in Climate Policy this topic, and is working to support uptake of this instrument by various public finance institutions.   Net Climate Finance : this initiative encourages the scale-up of climate finance flows by not only increasing “green,” or low-carbon investments, but also reducing capital flows to “brown” or carbon-intensive projects. RMI has published a discussion paper on this concept, and is pursuing several strategies for tracking finance for both green and brown investments.   Coal Capital Transition : this initiative aims to accelerate the early retirement of coal plants by minimizing capital destruction (i.e., financial losses resulting from plants shutting down prior to their technical expiration). RMI is currently conducting a survey of existing initiatives and strategies to facilitate early retirement, ranging from compensation schemes to innovative financial engineering solutions.   The Role   RMI is seeking two Associates or Senior Associates to support the Global Climate Finance initiatives described above. As part of a quickly growing team, these positions will support a wide range of activities, including research and analysis; stakeholder engagement and management; and planning and facilitation of workshops and events. In addition to supporting the above initiatives, these positions will also serve as a resource on climate finance for other programs within RMI. This is an excellent opportunity for early career professionals with a demonstrated interest in climate finance and a desire to undertake a variety of responsibilities within an expanding program.      The Global Climate Finance team will consider candidates for both the Associate and Senior Associate levels. Associates will work closely with various team members under the direction of more senior staff, whereas Senior Associates will be responsible for more substantial portions of projects and may manage smaller projects. The appropriate level will be determined based on experience and qualifications. Responsibilities   For both Senior Associate and Associate roles:   Developing analytical products including discussion papers, market surveys, concept notes, and presentations Supporting stakeholder outreach and engagement at a range of institutions (including multilateral development banks and development finance institutions, government agencies in both developed and developing countries, and non-governmental organizations) Planning, designing, and facilitating workshops hosted both at RMI and at various international venues Representing RMI and the Global Climate Finance program at conferences and events both domestically and internationally Supporting communications efforts (e.g., through blogs and other digital content) Preparing proposals, pitch decks, grant reports and other donor-facing materials Serving as a climate finance resource to various RMI programs Senior Associate and Associate responsibilities may be divided as follows: S enior Associate   Lead and conduct research and analysis Lead the preparation of policy briefs, market assessments, and other program materials Assist the project manager in coordinating with external stakeholders Design and help execute external meetings, presentations, and workshops Lead efforts to engage and support other RMI programs  Associate   Support research and analysis Prepare materials for written and presentation products  Prepare materials for engagement with stakeholders Assist in designing and engaging in external meetings, presentations and workshops Conduct research and analysis to support other RMI programs  Qualifications   For Senior Associate, 5+ years of work experience in a related field; 1-2 work experience requirement for Associates Graduate degree or equivalent experience in an applicable field such as finance, economics, business, environmental policy, or international development Experience with and/or knowledge of one or more of the program’s key themes (climate and development finance in developing countries, international climate policy and negotiations, public and private financial instruments, project finance) Experience with and/or knowledge of relevant international finance institutions (multilateral development banks, development finance institutions, climate funds, national institutions) Excellent writing and verbal communication skills Highly collaborative, strong team player Willingness to dive into new areas of work and to learn new subject matter Ability to manage multiple projects and priorities simultaneously Location: Boulder, CO or Washington, D.C.
