Members will share insights from their experience practicing in different jurisdictions, present best-practice research, and propose strategic research projects based on identified research gaps.

The CRF Coordinator will be responsible for leading the ongoing strategic development of the forum, building on existing efforts, and in line with the agreed objectives and purpose of the forum.

Experience of developing, managing, or leading communities or collaborations– either in NGO sector, academia, or commercial/corporate sector is essential. Being knowledgeable about climate change, the scientific basis and international dialogue on related topics is required. It is essential to have proven organisational and project management skills and be a clear, concise, and careful written and verbal communicator.
