The Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Partnerships (http://ndcpartnership.org/) Climate Action Enhancement Package (CAEP) is a new offering of the Partnership designed to be a targeted, demand-driven, and impact-focused fast-track initiative to deliver support for implementing and enhancing NDCs to set countries up for success in achieving raised ambition. Under CAEP a Technical Assistance Fund (TAF) will be established. It will allow countries to address the challenges of the first generation of NDCs by providing support for the development and implementation of evidence-based, high-quality NDCs with broad ownership from society and government. In addition, the Office of Grants and Contracts supports WRI Programs, Centers and international offices with both funding award, subaward administration, procurement and compliance support and guidance.
As the Grants and Contracts Specialist, you will work with the Grants and Contracts Director in overseeing the financial and compliance management of WRIs grants, contracts and subawards primarily as it relates to the CAEP. Responsibilities are listed below.
