United Nations Foundation

Associate, Haiti, Clean Cooking Alliance

Employment Opportunity - Remote - Full Time

Position Overview

The Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) works with a global network of partners to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to families around the world. Established in 2010, CCA supports the development, sale, distribution, and consistent use of clean cooking solutions that transform lives by improving health, protecting the climate and environment, and helping families save time and money. In alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals, CCA is working to achieve universal access to clean cooking by 2030. As the Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA), we commit to cultivating an environment that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable in our work and in the communities, we will serve through the “Haiti Cookstoves and Clean Energy Market Project.” We affirm and reinforce our belief in equality and inclusion at all levels by hiring from diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and voices. And we recognize that by committing to gender diversity, we will be better equipped to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to the three billion people who live each day without it.

The Haiti Cookstoves and Clean Energy Market Project (the “Project”) will set the foundation for a long-term, sustainable transformation of the market for cleaner and more efficient cooking solutions. This is driven by a motivation to reduce negative climate, environment, economic, and health impacts from traditional cooking practices on the Haitian population, with a focus on reducing the disproportionate impacts on women and girls.

Our efforts will entail a combination of sector-wide, market development activities, including capacity-building support for government, the private sector, and other stakeholders; advocacy and technical assistance on the development of policies and regulations conducive to market development; and various other support and sector coordination. The Project will be led by CCA, in close collaboration with the Government of Haiti, local stakeholders, practitioners, the private sector, donors, civil society organizations, and UN agencies.

The Associate will directly support the Haiti Project Manager in the timely implementation of project activities at the HQ and local levels. S/he will also work closely with other project teams on issues related to project coordination, market development, market enablement, communications, and partner and donor engagement.

Résumé du Poste

L’Alliance pour la Cuisson Propre (la CCA) travaille avec un réseau mondial de partenaires pour bâtir une industrie inclusive qui rend la cuisson propre accessible aux familles du monde entier. Fondée en 2010, la CCA appuie le développement, la vente, la distribution et l’utilisation constante de solutions de cuisson propres, qui transforment des vies en améliorant la santé, en protégeant le climat et l’environnement, et en aidant les familles à économiser temps et argent. En accord avec les Objectifs de développement durable, la CCA s’efforce d’atteindre l’accès universel à la cuisson propre d’ici 2030. En tant que l'Alliance pour la Cuisson Propre (la CCA), nous nous engageons à cultiver un environnement diversifié, inclusif et équitable dans notre travail et dans les communautés que nous servirons par le biais du "Projet du Marché de Réchauds et de l'Énergie Propre en Haïti". Nous affirmons et renforçons notre conviction de l'égalité et de l'inclusion à tous les niveaux en recrutant des personnes d'origines, de perspectives et de voix diverses. Et nous reconnaissons qu'en nous engageant en faveur de la diversité des genres, nous serons mieux équipés pour construire une industrie inclusive qui rend la cuisson propre accessible aux trois milliards de personnes qui n’en ont pas accès.

Le Projet du Marché de Réchauds et de l’Énergie Propre en Haïti (« le projet »), établira les bases d’une transformation durable et à long terme du marché pour des solutions de cuisson plus propres et plus efficaces. Ceci relève d’une motivation de réduire les impacts négatifs sur le climat, l’environnement, et l’économie, avec une accentuation précise des impacts sanitaires des pratiques culinaires traditionnelles sur la population haïtienne, en se concentrant en grande partie sur la réduction des impacts disproportionnés sur les femmes et les filles.

Nos efforts comprendront une combinaison d’activités sectorielles de développement du marché, y compris un soutien au renforcement des capacités pour le gouvernement, le secteur privé et d’autres acteurs ; la promotion et l'assistance technique pour l'élaboration de politiques et de réglementations favorables au développement du marché ; et divers autres soutiens et coordination sectorielles. La mise en œuvre d’interventions ciblées adaptées au genre dans toutes les activités d’engagement du projet sur le marché, pour stimuler la croissance du marché sera également essentielle à ce travail. Le projet sera dirigé par la CCA, en étroite collaboration avec le Gouvernement haïtien, les acteurs locaux, les praticiens, le secteur privé, les donateurs, les organisations de la société civile et les agences des Nations Unies.

L’Associé(e) de projet soutiendra directement la Gestionnaire de Projet dans la mise en œuvre des activités au niveau du siège et en Haiti. Il/elle travaillera également en étroite collaboration avec d'autres équipes du projet sur des questions liées à la coordination du projet, au développement du marché, à l'habilitation du marché, aux communications et à l'engagement des partenaires et des donateurs.

L’Associé(e) de projet travaillera en étroite coordination avec les membres du siège de la CCA à Washington, DC, et les membres du bureau d'Haïti, en soutenant la coordination et la mise en œuvre des activités du projet. Le poste relèvera directement de la Gestionnaire du projet.

Ce poste sera basé à Port-au-Prince en Haiti, ou à distance aux Etats Unis.
