Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves Overview:
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.
This foundation-building project will be executed over four-years, as part of a larger anticipated ten-year initiative. The objective of this project 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 project 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. The project is funded by the Government of Canada.
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 project 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 project 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 Project Manager is responsible for managing the development and set up of the project, and managing the continued collaboration between the DC office and the Port-au-Prince office during project implementation.
The Haiti Project Manager will directly support the Haiti Project by managing the timely launch and implementation of the Project from the Washington, DC Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves headquarters and in cooperation with the Port-au-Prince project office staff (not yet hired). 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 Project. S/he will also work closely with the budget, market development, demand and behavior change, evidence and impact, and communication and partnerships teams.
The Haiti Project Manager will work closely with Alliance staff members from each programmatic area in DC as well as all project staff in Port-au-Prince. The Haiti Project Manager will report directly to the Haiti Project Director.
