The UK Government and the Devolved Administrations are seeking to appoint two new members to serve on the Committee on Climate Change.
- A Climate/Environmental Science Committee Member.
To replace a retiring Member and strengthen its expertise on environmental issues, the Committee wishes to appoint a member with expertise in climate science and other branches of environmental science, and with experience of translating this knowledge for effective use in technological and economic applications.
- A Behavioural Insights Committee Member.
To strengthen its expertise on behavioural issues, the Committee wishes to appoint an additional member with expertise in how the changing behaviour of individuals, households and/or businesses affects greenhouse gas emissions and how behaviour responds to norms, information, policies, regulation and uncertainty.
The Committee is a Non-Departmental Public Body established under the provisions of the Climate Change Act 2008. It comprises seven independent members, including a Chair. The Committee also employs a Chief Executive and is supported by a Secretariat of around 30 staff to provide analytical and corporate support.
The successful candidates will be expected to join the Committee as soon as they are appointed and will play an important role in shaping the work of the Committee in providing independent and expert advice on climate change policy to the UK Government and Devolved Administrations.
