The latter also includes managing projects that develop or improve tools for MRV, creating training materials, contributing to in-country capacity building and ensuring that MRV work is integrated and complimentary to the other thematic focal areas of FCMC (Social and Environmental Soundness, Markets and Finance, Low Emissions Development Strategies) as feasible.

The employee would spend on average four out of five days per week at the FCMC project office in Rosslyn, VA, and one day at the CI office to engage with CI’s MRV-Task staff, when not travelling. Travel will be extensive, up to 50% time, mostly in Latin America.
