The Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage is the main vehicle under the UNFCCC process to address loss and damage associated with climate change impacts in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change. The Executive Committee of the Mechanism will start implementing its five-year rolling workplan in 2018 onwards. Some areas of work of the Executive Committee are slow onset events, non-economic losses, comprehensive risk management, human mobility, and action and support. This work contributes to SDGs 1, 2, 3, 6, 13, 14, & 15, among others. We are seeking an online volunteer to design a booklet that presents the 5-year rolling workplan, which can be used as a reference and distributed to inform of the ongoing work of the Excom.
Strong skills in layout of print publications, illustration or visual design; precision working with text-based contents; creative mind and technical skills; attention to detail; ability to work on own initiative as well as be responsive to feedback given. Background in climate change, environmental sciences, development, or related field is an asset.
