The OECD is a global economic forum working with 36 member countries and more than 100 emerging and developing economies to make better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The Organisation provides a unique forum in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) is an intergovernmental organisation committed to advancing security of energy supply, economic growth and environmental sustainability through energy policy co-operation. The IEA operates as an autonomous body within the framework of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Both the OECD and the IEA seek opportunities to work with an increasing number of non-members of growing importance to the world economy. The Agency aims to foster the contribution of the energy sector to economic development and environmental sustainability.
The IEA is working with partners to deliver a three-year work plan in Africa. The objectives are to (1) generate high-level political support in Africa for clean energy transitions and achievement of SDG 7, (2) improve the quality and availability of energy data on Africa, as well as enhance capacity for statistics and long-term energy planning in selected African countries, and (3) deliver analysis and develop tools to map cost-efficient, country-specific pathways for Africa’s energy system to deliver reliable, affordable and modern energy for all.
The Office of Global Energy Relations (GER) was created to strengthen IEA engagement with key Association and partner country stakeholders. Growing economic interdependence, environmental issues and an increasingly global energy market make IEA relations with partner countries, industry, international organisations and other stakeholders especially important. The Division for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America (EMAL) in the Global Energy Relations Office (GER), is responsible for coordinating and developing the Agency’s engagement with Partner countries in these regions.
The Clean Energy Transitions Programme (CETP) leverages the IEA’s unique energy expertise across all fuels and technologies to accelerate global clean-energy transitions. The Programme includes collaborative analytical work, technical cooperation, training and capacity building and strategic dialogues.
We are looking for a skilled and motivated Africa Programme manager with experience in project management and liaison activities to join the EMAL Division. The successful applicant will lead IEA activities with Africa. Under the supervision of the division head, s/he will liaise with counterparts in the region. The Programme Manager will also coordinate with colleagues across the IEA to ensure the flow of information and updates as well as assist teams in the reporting of Africa-related activities.
