Background and objectives
Create a booklet containing the workplan of the Executive Committee of the Warsaw International Mechanism for Loss and Damage (workplan will be provided as an Excel file). The booklet should be user-friendly, present the contents in a way that is easy to read and reference and be visually attractive. The final product should be printable to be used in hard copy, as well as posted online. Upon application, please send a sample of your previous design work of a similar nature. The booklet should be intuitive to use while keeping the structure of the original workplan. The content is mostly text-based, however some graphic elements may be used. The booklet should have a layout that allows precise page ordering, folding and binding when printed. The booklet should retain good legibility when printed in low resolution. You will be in regular contact with our team via email/Skype who will provide guidance and feedback on interim versions of the booklet.

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.
Volunteers: 1 needed
1-5 hours per week / 3 weeks
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.

Online volunteering is rewarding and empowering, but it’s also a serious commitment. When you are chosen for an assignment, the organization is counting on you to complete it.

Our online volunteer community is made up of bright, dynamic, committed individuals who enjoy bringing out the best in each other and in the organizations they serve. We expect all volunteers to maintain high standards of behaviour, and to refrain from any activity that could be detrimental to the assignment, the organization, other volunteers, or to UNV.
