Haiti Project Coordinator, Clean Cooking Alliance

Overview

The Clean Cooking Alliance (the “Alliance”) 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, the Alliance 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, the Alliance is working to achieve universal access to clean cooking by 2030.

The Alliance’s foundation-building Haiti Cookstoves and Clean Energy Market Project aims 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. The Project aims to set the foundation for a long-term, sustainable transformation of the market that will strengthen and diversify the supply of cleaner and more efficient cookstoves and fuels.

Our efforts will entail a combination of sector-wide, market development activities, including: capacity-building support for government, stakeholders, and clean cooking enterprises; advocacy and technical assistance to develop better policies and regulations; and support for sector coordination. The Project will also advocate for the inclusion of women and girls not only in the design of policies, but also across the clean cooking sector, to overcome historical exclusion and increase women’s economic and social empowerment. The Project will be led by the Alliance, in close collaboration with the Government of Haiti, local stakeholders, practitioners, the private sector, donors, civil society organizations, and UN agencies.

The Haiti Project Coordinator, Clean Cooking Alliance, will directly support the Haiti Project by coordinating the timely implementation of the Project at the HQ level. This includes coordinating annual work plan and budget development, assisting with the development of Requests for Proposals, shepherding contracts, monitoring budgets, grant reporting, and overseeing the logistics of the Haiti Project. S/he will also work closely with the Private Sector & Investment, Gender, Demand & Policy, Evidence & Impact, and Communications & Partnerships teams on issues related to project coordination, market development, market enablement, communications, and partner and donor engagement.

The Haiti Project Coordinator will work closely with Alliance staff members from each programmatic area and will report directly to the Haiti Project Manager.
