The UNFCCC secretariat (UN Climate Change) is the United Nations entity tasked with supporting the global response to the threat of climate change. UNFCCC stands for United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

The Capacity Award Programme to Advance Capabilities and Institutional Training in one Year (CAPACITY) Fellowship Programme contributes to building capacity for addressing climate change in Small Islands Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs), through the development of local professional expertise. 


Fellows are recruited to work and be trained within the UNFCCC secretariat in Bonn for a period of one year (renewable to two years). The Programme target group are mid-career professionals already in a government’s employment and who are nationals of and working in a SIDS or LDC Party. Fellowships are awarded to individuals, but the development/training offered must occur within the context of the organization for which the applicant works, helping the organization to develop its capacity.


The deadline for application is Friday 12 August 2022
