Forest and Land Use Governance – South East Asia
Palladium is a global force in international development. We are currently working on more than 100 projects with 2,000 employees operating in challenging and often volatile environments across over 90 countries. We provide technical and operational expertise across the spectrum of international development priorities - from improving health, governing natural resources and fostering economic growth to managing humanitarian aid logistics and putting corporate and government strategies into practice. We aim to be a world leader in the delivery of positive impact solutions.
Palladium’s Environment and Natural Resources Practice Area supports a series of major global initiatives to tackle deforestation and climate change. Our Partnerships for Forests programme seeks to catalyse investment in forests and sustainable land use by brokering innovative alliances between companies, public sector actors and communities. We also supply expert facilitation and technical assistance services to countries engaged in the Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) Action Plan: the European Union’s flagship initiative to tackle the trade in illegally-produced timber products.
Palladium is currently seeking a range of experts with experience in South East Asia - particularly Indonesia - with skills in forestry, natural resource and land use governance, spatial planning, process facilitation and diplomacy to join our Environment and Natural Resources team. We would like to hear from both national and international consultants and advisers for a range of short-term consultancy and long-term assignment on projects targeting different provinces of Indonesia.
We are looking for CVs from experienced and qualified professionals with a proven track record, either on donor-funded programmes (e.g. DFID, DFAT, EC, USAID) or with international finance institutions (e.g. World Bank, ADB, private finance groups). Candidates will also have technical expertise in one or more of the following areas:
  • Forest governance;
  • Land use governance;
  • Spatial planning;
  • Process facilitation, diplomacy, mediation of multi-stakeholder dialogues;
  • Community forestry;
  • Commodity certification (e.g. timber, oil palm); and
  • Supporting the formalisation of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the natural resource sector.
