IIED is a policy and action research organisation. We promote sustainable development to improve livelihoods and protect the environments on which these livelihoods are built. We specialise in linking local priorities to global challenges.

IIED is based in London and works in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and the Pacific, with some of the world's most vulnerable people. We work with them to strengthen their voice in the decision-making arenas that affect them – from village councils to international conventions.

We are a growing organisation, often on the lookout for professional and creative people with a passion for our mission. Check back regularly for updates. You can subscribe to the jobs RSS feed or sign up to receive updates via email.
