The Rome Centre seeks an experienced Senior Communications Advisor to advise the Director and Leadership Team on all aspects of RCSD’s communications with a particular focus on Africa. S/he will drive forward the centre’s role as a solutions broker through excellent strategic communications including significant experience with Tier One international media. The Senior Advisor will significantly contribute to raising the profile of RCSD’s work program as well as highlighting the importance of Climate Change, Sustainable Development and Nature Protection. Working closely with our programs and research teams, the Senior Advisor will plan and execute ambitious communication strategies to share the work of the centre supporting to support Italy’s Presidency of G2O and other high level meetings taking place in 2021.
The Rome Centre for Sustainable Development (RCSD) was created by agreement of the Steering Committee of the Italian Ministry of Environment. Land and Seas (IMELS) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in 2019. The Centre aims to facilitate, support and catalyze a growing range of activities within the IMELS-UNDP partnership in the broad field of environmental cooperation.
The Centre shall have five broad functions:
Within this broad frame, the Strategic Framework for the Rome Centre will focus particularly on three inter-connected strategic thrusts – Climate Change, Sustainable Development and Nature Protection. These thrusts include, among others, also Renewable Energy, as a key component of the global decarbonization effort and, as such, central to the Climate Change effort leading into COP 26 – with Italy as a co-convenor – and beyond and Nature-Based Solutions that span both the Climate Change and Biodiversity agendas and are an important tool in the strategies being prepared for CBD COP 15. Land and ecosystem restoration – central to the UNCCD agenda - are also key pathways both to mitigate and adapt to climate change and to reverse biodiversity loss.
The Centre’s geographical scope embraces all areas of the globe in which UNDP is active and present, with particular focus on areas of priority to IMELS. Its thematic scope is co-equal with that of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, with emphasis on the SDGs which, within the integrated context of the agenda, target the environment. Within this expanded geographical and thematic scope, the Centre will be guided by the fundamental policy and strategic priorities of both IMELS and UNDP.
The outcome of the Centre’s work shall be to advance the implementation of Agenda 2030 and the SDGs by enhancing the coordination and targeting of Italy’s international cooperation activities on sustainable development in harmony with the global, regional and country activities of UNDP. In pursuing this aim, the Centre shall, to the extent possible, encourage and benefit from partnerships with international organizations, private sector entities, academic institutions, and civil society organizations both in Italy and elsewhere. It will also contribute to the involvement of the parties in key global and regional processes that contribute to the implementation of the Agenda 2030.
