Manager, Oceans and Climate - Conservation International
Over the last 10 years, CI has developed a comprehensive Blue Climate program spanning over 20 countries dedicated to identifying and addressing science and policy priorities for oceans and climate globally. The Blue Climate program at CI works closely with their field programs across the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Africa to design and implement innovative approaches to (1) ecosystem based climate adaptation solutions that improve coastal and marine communities well-being while also conserving ecosystems and biodiversity; and (2) conserve and restore coastal blue carbon ecosystems (mangroves, salt marshes, and seagrass meadows) for climate mitigation. The Blue Climate program also has key leadership roles in advancing climate mitigation and adaptation priorities into national and regional coastal management, policy, and science through the Blue Carbon Initiative (Science and Policy working groups), the International Partnership for Blue Carbon and the Global Mangrove Alliance.
The CI Blue Climate program is now seeking a self-motivated, creative team member to support the long-term growth and success of CI’s oceans and climate change program. The position will provide technical and project management support to CIs field teams. They will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the Blue Carbon Initiative including coordinating the annual International Blue Carbon Scientific Working Group meeting. They will provide thought leadership regarding coastal and marine policy and management under a changing climate. They will coordinate with the other divisions within the Ocean Center, Moore Center for Science, Center for Environment and Peace, Center for Environmental Leadership in Business and others across CI as well as external partners to ensure successful completion and maximum integration of marine climate change projects at CI.
