GIZ - PAKLIM III Project Job Vacancy: Technical Advisor, Jakarta - Indonesian

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German implementing organisation which provides services worldwide in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.

With a share of up to 13% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, Indonesia is an important factor within international efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As early as 2009, then the former Indonesian president gave the target of a reduction of the GHG by 26%, respectively by 41% with international assistance, against the business-as-usual (BAU) scenario by 2020. In 2011 a national action plan (RAN-GRK) was adopted to implement these objectives. The GHG reduction targets are included in the medium-term development plan (RPJMN) 2015-2019. Various methodological frameworks, e.g. monitoring, reporting and verifying of mitigation measures (MRV) are under development. Regional action plans (RAD-GRKs) for 33 respectively 34 provinces were developed. In September 2015, Indonesia submitted the "INDC" document to the UNFCCC Secretariat with mitigation targets of 29% and 41% with international support by 2030. In October 2016, the Indonesian Parliament decided to ratify the Paris Agreement. The Indonesian “National Determined Contributions” (NDC) were submitted by KLHK to UNFCCC in November 2016.

The aim of PAKLIM III is: Climate relevant Ministries of the Indonesian Government and authorities of the sub-national level have coordinated central policy instruments for the implementation of the Indonesian climate policy. The further development of a coherent climate policy of Indonesia is supported, as well as the integration of the NDC implementation into planning and decision-making processes and into already existing action plans.

The project works in three areas: (1) Strengthening the implementation of the National Action Plan and the sub-national action plans on the reduction of GHG (RAN / RAD-GRK); (2) More ambitious climate change goals in the sectorial plans of selected line ministries in line with a coherent Indonesian climate policy; (3) Strengthening the capacity to develop national climate-related finance and fiscal policy instruments.
