Senior Manager, BOGA Fund, Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance (immediate opportunity), Remote, Home based

Deadline: February 26, 2024.

The Beyond Oil and Gas Alliance (BOGA) is a first-mover alliance of governments and stakeholders that are working toward a global, managed, and just phase-out of oil and gas production. BOGA was launched at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference (COP 26) in Glasgow as the first government-led alliance committed to phasing out oil and gas production. Its core members have committed to ending new licensing rounds for oil and gas and to Paris-aligned end dates for production.

At COP 27, BOGA announced new members and friends, launched a USD 10 million BOGA Fund to support developing countries in their transitions, and helped rally over 80 governments in support of the phase-out of all fossil fuels. At COP 28, BOGA played a central role in delivering the first global agreement to transition away from fossil fuels.

BOGA’s continued success depends on translating the UAE Consensus into action. This means supporting BOGA members’ ambitions, bringing new members into the Alliance, and ensuring that dependency on oil and gas production—and the barriers it presents for climate action—is elevated within international climate, energy, and economic dialogues.

BOGA’s Fund is designed to provide analytical, policy, and technical assistance to governments in the Global South that want to explore the risks of continued oil and gas development and the opportunities for alternative development pathways, with the aim of supporting requests for larger-scale, longer-term support from the multilateral system.
