Recruitment Details: Regional Centre in Bangkok (BRC)

About IGES, IGES Regional Centre, and UNFCCC-IGES Regional Collaboration Center

Established in 1998, the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) is an independent, non-profit environmental policy think-tank, headquartered in Japan. IGES aims to achieve a new paradigm for civilization, conduct innovative policy development and strategic research for environmental measures, and reflect research results into political decisions for realising sustainable development both in the Asia-Pacific region and globally. 

IGES Regional Centre in Bangkok, Thailand (BRC) works on critical environmental and sustainable development issues and is IGES’ main arm for collaborating with local and international partners in Asia and the Pacific. BRC works closely with partners and governments to deliver real change on the ground by facilitating dialogue, conducting research and sharing replicable practices that are useful for policymakers. BRC’s activities focus on four key areas: climate change adaptation; climate change mitigation; environmental safeguards; and local and city initiatives. 

In September 2015, IGES and the UN Climate Change secretariat jointly launched a Regional Collaboration Center (RCC) for Asia and the Pacific. The RCC, hosted by IGES Regional Center, is dedicated to the objectives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol, and the Paris Climate Change Agreement. It helps channel local, regional and global resources into climate action, to facilitate the implementation of countries’ Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement, National Adaptation Plans, roadmaps for implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and other relevant policies and strategies of countries in the region.  For more about RCC Bangkok activities, please visit our webpage (https://unfccc.int/about-us/regional-collaboration-centres/rcc-bangkok).
