GLOBAL ALLIANCE FOR IMPROVED NUTRITION JOB VACANCIES 2020
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is a Swiss-based foundation launched at the UN in 2002 to tackle the human suffering caused by malnutrition. Working in alliances with government, business, academia, and beneficiaries, we aim to transform food systems so that they deliver more nutritious and safe food for all people, especially the most vulnerable.
GAIN’s Indonesia Postharvest Loss Alliance for Nutrition (IPLAN) project facilitated the establishment of the Jejaring Pasca-Panen Untuk Gizi Indonesia (JP2GI), based on a decree from the Director of Community Nutrition, Ministry of Health which mandates cooperation with the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries. In September 2019, JP2GI became a fully independent association.
As a leader in identifying and delivering solutions to address malnutrition, GAIN seeks to strengthen the value chain for nutritious food thus making nutritious diets more affordable and accessible for vulnerable populations. To this end, we take a market-based approach, promoting investment in local private enterprises along the value chain. With our new strategy, we hope to reach a formative, sustainable and scalable solution to food insecurity and malnutrition.
GAIN Indonesia has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Health, Republic of Indonesia to assist public nutrition improvement programs. One of these is IPLAN, which set up the JP2GI to bring together the multitude of public and private sector actors addressing the issue to collectively reduce loss and waste of nutritious fish. With support from GAIN, JP2GI has developed its sustainability plan up to 2030, including sharping its vision and mission to reduce food post-harvest loss as a community effort to increase availability, affordability, and sustainability of nutritious food through alliancing and collaborating with multi-stakeholders as well as mapping its assets, develop roadmap and strategic plan to 2030.
