Climate change is one of the biggest challenges for the 21st century, not least in view of the risks it entails for peace and international security. Adelphi has been working on climate-fragility risks for many years, in cooperation with the German Foreign Office and many other ministries, governments and international organizations. We are looking for creative and dynamic personalities who want to help shape political processes in this domain at the national and international level.
As Senior Advisor, you will take responsibilities across many fields – from preparing international dialogues to developing new thematic angles on the issue. You will conceptualize and draft analyses of risks and potential solutions on climate security and climate diplomacy and support policy-makers in identifying entry points for implementing and communicating promising approaches.
