Job description
CEEW seeks to hire a Programme Lead/Programme Associate for its Solar Pumps and Sustainable Irrigation programme under the Energy Access team. The programme is on a mission to enable a sustainable scale-up of solar-powered irrigation in India and the developing world. It explores both supply and demand-side aspects that can enable developing countries to increase their net irrigated areas, reduce emissions, and improve farmer incomes. We are looking for an experienced professional with hands-on experience and deep sectoral understanding, to build and expand our work on solar-powered irrigation.

India, and the developing world at large, is at an inflexion point in solar pump adoption. But without necessary policy environments and appropriate delivery services, solar irrigation runs the risk of widening inequality in irrigation access and creating environmental hazards. The programme’s focus is on providing policy support to governments, the private sector, financiers and other stakeholders in sustainable expansion of solar pumps through rigorous research work and creating suitable tools and instruments. A prospective candidate should be able to work with diverse stakeholders to develop and communicate solutions to emerging issues.
