GIZ - FORCLIME Project Job Vacancy: Administrative Professional, Pontianak - West Kalimantan

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations on behalf of the German Government.

The Forests and Climate Change Program (FORCLIME) in cooperation with the sectoral Program Sustainable Agricultural Value Chains and Standards supports the Government of Indonesia in their endeavor to mitigate the effects of climate change through forestry sector reform and biodiversity conservation and as a new intervention area on the establishment of sustainable agricultural value chains to reduce deforestation, caused by agricultural commodities. Pilot activities are being supported in the district of Kapuas Hulu, where a jurisdictional sustainable value chain initiative has been initiated by the district government. The initiative is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by GIZ (German International Cooperation) with the district government and the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry as the current Programme Executing Agency.

The Programme's overall objective is to improve forest protection while enhancing the livelihoods of rural communities and establish verifiable agricultural value chains from sustainable production in Kapuas Hulu up to the final export market. To achieve this goal, the Programme team assists the Indonesian Government in designing and implementing legal, policy and institutional reforms for the conservation of forests and the development of sustainable agricultural value chains, at local, provincial and national level. The support for sustainable agricultural practices and the traceability along the value chains towards the European markets are a new feature of the Programme, providing decision-makers with valuable experience of i.e. how the ISPO process could be implemented "on the ground".
