[REPOST - newdevjobsindo] GIZ Indonesia for the Study and Expert Funds Low Carbon Development Strategy in Indonesia (SFF-LCD) project: Advisor on Low Carbon Development

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis. GIZ has been working in Indonesia since 1975 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). 

The project “Study and Expert Funds Low Carbon Development Strategy in Indonesia” has been commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with an implementation period until December 2021. This project would respond to the implementation of Low Carbon Development Initiative (LCDI) at national and sub-national level. LCDI was initiated by the Government of Indonesia and has become new platform for Indonesia to preserve natural carrying capacity and maintain economic growth accordingly. At the national level, policy modelling and the integration of LCDI into the planning document were done and it is expected that this process can be transferred to local governments. 

The project’s overall objective is to support the Government of Indonesia through the LCDI Secretariat by assisting sub-national government to develop their low carbon development policy. The transformation process would begin in the first provinces that have shown commitments in terms of low carbon development.
