NORCAP seeks French Speaking Climate Experts to support our work to
strengthen climate services in West Africa

NORCAP is a world leading standby roster which consists of 700 highly
qualified women and men ready to deploy to international operations,
regional institutions and national authorities at short notice. In order
to rapidly respond to our partners’ needs NORCAP is currently growing
its capacity within technical areas of relevance for Disaster Risk
Reduction (DRR) and Climate Change Adaptation (CCA), including within
meteorology and climate services communication.

Specific background

Effective climate services are vital to reducing vulnerability to
climate impacts. However, 70 of the most vulnerable and least developed
countries do not yet have access to usable and scientifically credible
climate information and forecasts. The Global Framework for Climate
Services (GFCS) aims at pooling the expertise and resources of a number
of organizations together through the development and incorporation of
science-based climate information into planning, policy and practice at
all levels tailored to user needs in five focus areas: Disaster Risk
Reduction (DRR), water management, agriculture/food security, health and
energy.

As a partner to the GFCS, NORCAP is seeking experienced Climate Service
Experts who are interested in a challenge out of the ordinary.

Purpose

To support lasting capacity in the development of user-specific,
actionable climate products and services at regional and/or national
levels in close collaboration with user sectors and research
