About the Organisation
The Council on Economic Policies (CEP) is an international nonprofit nonpartisan economic policy think tank for sustainability with a focus on fiscal, monetary and trade policy. We formulate and promote economic policy solutions that strengthen individual opportunity, social cohesion, and environmental stability.
Our work is driven by the conviction that changes to economic policies are vital for sustainability. Whether governments align fiscal policy with a sustainability agenda, whether central banks integrate social and environmental considerations into their decisions and whether trade agreements account for their effects on climate change, employment and public services has significant ramifications for people and the planet.
The Fellow will be part of the Climate Finance Fellowship, a pilot initiative providing pathways for finance professionals to transition to climate finance careers with the goal of accelerating organizations leading the energy transition financing movement in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. In addition to your position at CEP, as a Fellow you will benefit from climate change, energy finance, and leadership development training, as well as building your global network of likeminded professionals. Some international travel may also be required. IREX, a global non-profit that has supported more than 50,000 Fellows over 50 years, will implement the fellowship and provide ongoing support to you.
