CARE Danmark (CDK) is seeking a Global Climate Change Advocacy Coordinator for the CARE International Poverty, Environmental and Climate Change Network (PECCN). Starting date is 1st of August 2011 or as soon as possible with initial contract period of two years.
The network is a programme development, programme quality and advocacy network that is based on horizontal and largely informal relationships across CARE, and between CARE and peer organizations.

CARE is also addressing emissions policies, typically through our participation in larger advocacy alliances.
The goals and strategies of PECCN are defined by the Climate Change Strategic Plan (CCSP) of CARE International. Climate change advocacy is one of the four main themes of the CCSP. See
