Requirements for a web developer for the Sixth Assessment Report microsites

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is currently looking for the services of a web developer to work on the web pages of its upcoming Sixth Assessment Report.

Developer specifications 

The IPCC is currently working on its Sixth Assessment Report which comprises of three volumes and a Synthes Report. The first, being worked on by Working Group I is on the physical science basis for climate change. The second is on impacts, adaptation and vulnerabilities and it is being worked on by the Working Group II of the IPCC. Working Group III is working on the third contribution on mitigation. The Synthesis Report as the name suggests integrates the three Working Group contributions to the assessment and any Special Reports prepared in that assessment cycle.    

The AR6 will have three dedicated report microsites, one for each of  the three Working Group contributions and the Synthesis Report. These report microsites will be developed using a Static Site Generator, preferably Gatsby. They will need to be integrated to the main IPCC website ( therefore will need to have the same look and feel as the already existing report microsites (built on WordPress), see example here:

The designs including example HTML and stylesheets for these templates will be provided.
