The purpose of this activity is to reduce systemic constraints to climate and disaster finance and increase investments in resilience across priority sectors such as agriculture. The activity is expected to have the following objectives:

These will include interventions to update/develop DRF tools to cover the entire spectrum of risk (from small, frequent events to rare, extreme events), as well as interventions to support the development of viable climate resilience projects that are ready to receive financial resources from the private sector and international climate funds.
The position is anticipated to be full-time for the five-year duration of the activity and based in Bridgetown, Barbados. The position is contingent upon the activity’s award and USAID approval. The tentative start date is around August or September 2023.
