The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of 38 member countries, that works to build 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. Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards, and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.
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. Both the IEA and the OECD 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 across the globe.
The Office of Global Energy Relations (GER) was created to strengthen IEA engagement with key Accession, Association and partner country stakeholders, to articulate the IEA’s role vis-à-vis other international organisations and fora as well as to ensure cross-Agency co-ordination of these activities. The Division for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Latin America (EMAL), is responsible for coordinating and developing the Agency’s engagement with countries in these regions, including activities under the Clean Energy Transitions Programme (CETP).
In recent years, the IEA has ramped up its activities in Sub-Saharan Africa. The objectives are to (1) generate high-level political support in the region for clean energy transitions and achievement of SDG 7, (2) improve the quality and availability of energy data on Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as enhance capacity for statistics and long-term energy planning in selected Sub-Saharan African countries, and (3) deliver analysis and develop tools to map cost-efficient, country-specific pathways for Sub-Saharan Africa’s energy system to deliver reliable, affordable and modern energy for all.
The Office of Global Energy Relations is looking for a highly motivated Sub-Saharan Africa Programme Manager with regional expertise and experience in project management and liaison activities to join the EMAL Division. The successful applicant will lead IEA activities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Under the supervision of the division head, s/he will liaise with counterparts and key stakeholders in the region and oversee the development and implementation of regional and bilateral work programmes. The Programme Manager will also coordinate with colleagues across the IEA to ensure the flow of information as well as assist teams in the reporting of Sub-Saharan Africa-related activities.
