UK NGO Climate Parliament is recruiting a Regional Coordinator for Latin America, to be based in Santiago, Chile, to lead the project, to tackle climate change in the Andes through parliamentary action.
Programme Officer Francesca Carnibella writes: “If you are committed to combatting climate change, a natural networker with a passion for politics then do consider applying. For more information about the role, please follow this link.
“At Climate Parliament, we are now turning our sights to the Andes for this exciting new project. We have previously worked in Latin America, and Costa Rican members of our network passed legislation to protect their forests. This new Andean project will have an initial focus on renewable energy policy in Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador and Peru.
“Climate Parliament is a global network of legislators committed to tackling climate change and promoting renewable energy. As well as in Latin America, we are working in Africa, Asia and Europe. We help create cross-party groups of MPs and support them to take action in their own parliaments. Doubling India’s renewable energy target and budget and getting climate change in the Tunisian constitution are among some of our recent successes..”
