Hivos Southeast Asia Job Vacancy: Lobby and Advocacy Programme - Jakarta

Background As part of the Citizen Agency Consortium, Hivos and IIED would like to commission a country-level baseline study in Indonesia for one of the four programmes of its Dialogue and Dissent strategic partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Sustainable Diets for All (SD4All).

Sustainable Diet defined: those diets with low environmental impacts which contribute to food and nutrition security and to healthy life for present and future generations. Sustainable diets are protective and respectful of biodiversity and ecosystems, culturally acceptable, accessible, economically fair and affordable; nutritionally adequate, safe and healthy; while optimizing natural and human resources (FAO, 2010).
The five-year programme focuses on specific lobby and advocacy goals (influencing policies and practices of market and government actors) as well as on strengthening of advocacy capacities of civil society actors, specifically in the food sector. The long term goal is more sustainable, diverse, healthy and nutritious food available for low-income citizens.

If required, different consultant(s) will be selected to carry out specific parts of the baseline study.
