Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) works to improve the most important energy and land use policies around the world, with a particular focus on finance. CPI supports decision makers through in-depth analysis on what works and what does not. CPI works in places that provide the most potential for policy impact, including Brasil, Europe, India, Indonesia, Kenya and the United States. Our work helps nations grow while addressing increasingly scarce resources and climate risk. This is a complex challenge in which policy plays a crucial role. CPI is a small but dynamic organization, with a global reach and an entrepreneurial culture. We work hard to maintain an idea-driven, collaborative environment across all our teams.
CPI’s Climate Finance program guides decision makers who are working to ensure economic growth while addressing increasingly scarce resources and climate risk. Enough capital exists to transition the world into a low-carbon, climate-resilient economy. However, current investment in climate-friendly development falls far short of the need. CPI works to redirect finance from high- to low-carbon activities and helps decision makers use their resources wisely. We provide much-needed information on climate finance flows, apply in-depth analysis to guide decision makers on their efforts, and support innovation in finance to address investors’ needs and lower costs.
CPI offers a challenging environment that requires independent thinking, collaboration, and pragmatic problem solving. The role of Assistant Analyst/Analyst supports the deliverables of CPI’s international Climate Finance work stream, focusing on issues such as the governance of international funds, the evaluation of their allocation and effectiveness, and the design of innovative climate finance instruments that effectively align public and private interests.
Under the supervision of the Associate Director of CPI’s San Francisco office, the Assistant Analyst/Analyst undertakes robust and careful analysis, drawing on methodologies from micro- and macroeconomics, public policy, regulatory economics, finance, behavioral science, risk management, statistics, law, engineering, and other academic and commercial disciplines.
In conducting analysis, the Assistant Analyst/Analyst is required to work in close cooperation with a range of international partners from the policy, finance, and corporate spheres, as well as with CPI teams throughout the world. Previous work experience with climate policy, finance, regulation, and carbon markets, as well as knowledge and understanding of national regulatory institutions and/or multilateral or bilateral financial institutions and national or regional development banks and/or private finance institutions are valuable assets.
