Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation comprised of 37 member countries, that works to build better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, we work on establishing evidence-based international standards, and finding solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and creating jobs to fostering strong education and fighting international tax evasion, we provide a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, exchange of experiences, best-practice sharing, and advice on public policies and international standard-setting.
The OECD Environment Directorate (ENV), in line with the strategic objectives of the Secretary General, provides relevant and timely information, analysis and advice to support governments in identifying and implementing the environmental policies needed to support a cleaner, more resource-efficient, low-carbon, resilient and green growth path. The Directorate currently comprises approximately 165 staff members working across a broad range of issues such as: green growth, climate change, biodiversity, water, eco-innovation, resource productivity and waste, environmental policy tools and evaluation, safety of chemicals, biotechnology and nanomaterials, sustainable finance and linkages between environment and tax, agriculture, energy, transport, development assistance, trade and investment policies.
The Environment and Economy Integration (EEI) Division of ENV currently undertakes policy-orientated research in a number of areas at the interface between the environment and the economy, including: environment-economy modelling, resource productivity and waste, environmental policies and policy outcomes, spatial planning, green mobility and transport, trade and environment, and cost-benefit analysis. The modelling team uses large-scale economic models to assess the linkages between economic activity and environmental challenges. Most of the policy analyses undertaken by the team are based on quantitative assessments, using the multi-regional global computable general equilibrium model ENV-Linkages.
The EEI Division is looking for a Programmer to contribute to the Environment Directorate (ENV) work based on the modelling tools operated by the team and the databases underlying the analysis. The selected candidate will report to the Team Lead; and is expected to work closely together with the other team members.
