The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves is a public-private partnership hosted by the UN Foundation to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women, and protect the environment by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions. The Alliance’s 100 by ‘20 goal calls for 100 million households to adopt clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels by 2020. We are working with a strong network of public, private and non-profit partners to accelerate the production, deployment, and use of clean and efficient cookstoves and fuels in developing countries.
The Haiti Program Coordinator, Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, is responsible for coordinating and supporting the development and implementation of the Haiti Clean Cooking Market Development Program to transform the market for cleaner and more efficient cookstoves and fuels.
This foundation building program will be executed over four-years, as part of a larger anticipated ten-year initiative. The objective of this program is to reduce negative climate, environment, economic, and health impacts from traditional cooking practices on the Haitian population, with a focus on reducing the disproportionate impacts on women and girls. The program aims to set the foundation for a long-term, sustainable transformation of the market that will strengthen and diversify the supply of cleaner and more efficient cookstoves and fuels.
Our efforts will entail a combination of sector-wide, market development activities, including: capacity-building support for government, stakeholders and clean cooking enterprises; advocacy and technical assistance to develop better policies and regulations; and support for sector coordination. The program will also advocate for the inclusion of women and girls not only in the design of policies, but also across the clean cooking sector, to overcome historical exclusion and increase women’s economic and social empowerment. The program will be led by the Alliance, in close collaboration with the Government of Haiti, local stakeholders, practitioners, the private sector, donors, civil society organizations, and UN agencies.
The Haiti Program Coordinator (HQ), Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves will directly support the Haiti Program by coordinating the timely implementation of the Program at HQ. This includes coordinating annual work plan and budget development, assisting with the development of requests for proposals, shepherding contracts, coordinating experts for workshops, monitoring budgets, grant reporting, and overseeing the logistics of the Haiti Program. S/he will also work closely with the market development, demand and behavior change, evidence and impact, and communication and partnerships teams on issues related to program coordination, market development, market enablement, communications, and partner and donor engagement.
The Haiti Program Coordinator will work closely with Alliance staff members from each programmatic area. The Haiti Program Coordinator will report directly to the Senior Director, Evidence and Impact, Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.
