Position Overview

The Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA) works with a global network of partners to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to families around the world. Established in 2010, CCA supports the development, sale, distribution, and consistent use of clean cooking solutions that transform lives by improving health, protecting the climate and environment, and helping families save time and money. In alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals, CCA is working to achieve universal access to clean cooking by 2030. As the Clean Cooking Alliance (CCA), we commit to cultivating an environment that is diverse, inclusive, and equitable in our work and in the communities, we will serve through the “Haiti Cookstoves and Clean Energy Market Project.” We affirm and reinforce our belief in equality and inclusion at all levels by hiring from diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and voices. And we recognize that by committing to gender diversity, we will be better equipped to build an inclusive industry that makes clean cooking accessible to the three billion people who live each day without it.

The Haiti Cookstoves and Clean Energy Market Project (the “Project”) will set the foundation for a long-term, sustainable transformation of the market for cleaner and more efficient cooking solutions. This is driven by a motivation to reduce negative climate, environment, economic, and health impacts from traditional cooking practices on the Haitian population, with a focus on reducing the disproportionate impacts on women and girls.

Our efforts will entail a combination of sector-wide, market development activities, including capacity-building support for government, the private sector, and other stakeholders; advocacy and technical assistance on the development of policies and regulations conducive to market development; and various other support and sector coordination. The Project will be led by CCA, in close collaboration with the Government of Haiti, local stakeholders, practitioners, the private sector, donors, civil society organizations, and UN agencies.

The Associate will directly support the Haiti Project Manager in the timely implementation of project activities at the HQ and local levels. They will also work closely with other project teams on issues related to project coordination, market development, market enablement, communications, and partner and donor engagement.

The Associate will work in close coordination with members of CCA’s Washington, DC office, and members of the Haiti Office, supporting the coordination and implementation of Project activities. The role will report directly to the Haiti Project Manager.

This position is based in Washington, DC, Haiti (Port-au-Prince), or remote.
