Job description
Energy Solutions for Displacement Settings (ESDS) is a global project that is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). It seeks to improve the energy supply in refugee camps and settlements in Uganda, Kenya, and Ethiopia. The project falls under the umbrella of a collaboration with UNHCR to support the implementation of the Global Compact on Refugees (GCR) in the Humanitarian-Development-Peace (HDP) Nexus. The compact seeks to ease pressure on host communities and strengthen the self-reliance of refugees by pursuing a longer-term development approach in refugee-hosting areas which both refugee and host communities benefit from equitably. ESDS works on improving the energy supply in displacement settings through the following three intervention areas: 1) improving policy frameworks by advising policy makers and UNHCR on strategic energy planning, 2) greening UNHCR’s infrastructure through the development of renewable energy solutions, and 3) increasing energy access for households, small businesses, and social institutions through market-based approaches.

You will support the project team in organizing and planning of events and facilitating the project’s communication process. Depending on your interests and previous knowledge, your range of tasks may include the following:

- Support the team in organizing the global ESDS project planning workshop - Organize, realize and do follow-up work of a series of webinars on innovation topics in sustainable energy supply, policy creation, and other cross-cutting themes - Facilitate the development and sharing of different knowledge products and create articles for publication on the GIZ website, project portal, and newsletters - Provide and work on ideas to shape ESDS’s Global Communication Strategy - Support the project’s M&E process and drafting of progress reports, concept notes, and Terms of Reference (ToR) documents - Contribute to online research relevant to energy supply in refugee camps and overall project implementation - Support the team in data management, and drafting meeting notes and presentations
