Australia Pacific Climate Partnership Support Unit | Climate Science and Knowledge Management Experts
The Australia Pacific Climate Partnership (the Climate Partnership) is a $75 million investment over four years (2018-2022), funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). It aims to increase the effectiveness of Australia’s support for climate change action and disaster resilience in the Pacific. The Climate Partnership Support Unit manages an Expert Panel to support these activities by providing specialist skills in priority sectors, including energy, infrastructure, health, education, water and food security, as well as in climate science and knowledge management.
Palladium, on behalf of the DFAT, is seeking tenders from providers to undertake short-term analytical and advisory services to inform Australian investments in the climate science and science knowledge management in the Pacific region for the Climate Partnership. We are looking for a range of skills to be provided by a team of experts – not everyone needs to be an expert in all. Individuals and organisations are invited to tender. Pacific Islanders and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged to apply.
Applicants will be required to demonstrate the following:
- Internationally recognised expertise in climate science, and in the application of climate science in the Pacific region.
- Proven capability and experience in climate change knowledge management and/or in communicating complex climate science through various formats and to a broad range of audiences, including audiences from government, the private sector, civil society and students.
- Demonstrated capability in design and production of scientific presentation materials, innovative and interactive content (slides, posters, infographics, figures, etc.), tailored to a range of audiences.
- Demonstrated knowledge and understanding of DFAT aid policies and strategies, and other relevant Australian Government polices
