#PURWOKERTO GIZ Vacancy - Provincial Coordinator

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Green Economy and Locally Appropiate Mitigation in Indonesia (GE-LAMA-I) is a joint program by the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) and GIZ. In implementing this development cooperation project, GIZ is collaborating with the World Agroforestry Center (ICRAF) on behalf of the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). GE-LAMA-I supports the commitment of the Indonesian government mitigating climate change in land based sector by strengthening the sub-national governments (particularly districts) to plan and monitor green economy development (which include low carbon development objectives) and to develop four locally appropriate mitigation actions (LAMA) that have the potential to be scaled up to national level (NAMA).

GE-LAMA-I is structured into three work packages which are closely interlinked:
  • Work Package 1: to develop policies at national and sub-nationals to support LAMA/NAMA development and green economy planning, mainstreaming and monitoring 
  • Work Package 2: to develop the institutional capacity of the sub nationals to develop LAMA/NAMA and to plan, mainstream and monitor green economy development at local level
  • Work Package 3: to develop tools and methods that can help the local governments to plan and monitor green economy plan and LAMA/NAMA development in participatory way.
GE-LAMA-I works in six districts in two provinces i.e. East Kalimantan and Central Java. In addition, GE-LAMA-I works closely with similar project named Locally Appropiate Mitigation Action in Indonesia (LAMA-I) that works in another six districts in another two provinces i.e. Papua and South Sumatra. While LAMA-I is also jointly implemented with BAPPENAS, the implementation agencies from the development partner side is led by ICRAF in collbaroration with GIZ and CCROM-IPB. Unlike GE-LAMA-I, LAMA-I is funded by the Danish Government (DANIDA).
