About CARE Nederland

We are CARE Nederland, part of CARE, an international development organisation active in more than 100 countries worldwide. Originating from American food aid to Europe after the Second World War, we have been committed for 78 years to those who need it most.

CARE’s Vision 2030 shapes the confederation’s work in every context. One of the six outcome areas that CARE jointly works towards is Climate Justice. The CARE Climate Justice Center (CJC), hosted by CARE Nederland, has been assigned responsibility for leading CARE’s global commitment to Climate Justice.

  • Identify key opportunities and venues for sharing and showcasing CARE’s climate policy positions within and outside of CARE.
  • Strategically raise the profile of CARE’s climate policy positions amongst priority audience groups by facilitating their articulation and working with CARE counterparts in member and country offices to achieve frequent, high-profile media coverage in international print, broadcast and digital media.
  • Produce, coordinate and provide input into quality CARE communications and campaigning materials to support international advocacy.
  • Lead communications at key climate change conferences and coordinate media trips or other activities by international or other media, as required.


  • Work closely with the Global Policy Co-Lead to facilitate the overall development and implementation of the climate-related advocacy and policy component in the CARE Climate Justice Strategy 2030 and related CJC work plan.

  • Support coordination of CARE’s involvement in the UNFCCC process and other relevant international/regional and national level climate change policy processes.
  • Liaise with other civil society coalitions/organisations and social movements on joint advocacy and policy activities and coordinate and build transnational networks and alliances that can contribute to CARE’s climate change advocacy goals.
  • Provide technical assistance and capacity building on Climate Justice advocacy, for example through the CARE Climate & Resilience Academy, to CARE programmes and by supporting the development of advocacy strategies and programmes at global, regional and country levels.
  • Work closely with the CJC MEAL staff to contribute to CARE’s learning process about the impact from CARE’s advocacy and policy influence.
