For its Hivos  seeks qualified Indonesian candidates for the position of:

Title                  :  Consultant for Trainer for Lobby and Advocacy Training

Duty Station      :  Jakarta, Indonesia

Report to          :  Project Manager – Local Harvest

Duration            :  7 months ( August 2019 to February 2020)


At the end of 2017, Hivos and the European Union (EU) signed a grant agreement for SWITCH Asia - Local Harvest: Promoting Sustainable and Equitable Consumption and Local Food System in Indonesia – DCI-ACA/2017/391-649. The project aimed at a significant shift in consumption patterns towards sustainable and ethically sourced food products in Indonesia is stimulated by increased knowledge and awareness of consumers about the impacts of their food choices; increased capacities of food MSMEs and producers - including women and indigenous people - to penetrate markets; and a favorable policy environment for uptake of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) practices in the food sector. It will be implemented by Hivos and its partners: ASPPUK, AMAN, NTFP-EP Indonesia and WWF.

One of the result areas of the program includes the support and adoption from national and local governments on policies and guidelines to promote SCP of green, healthy, fair and local food products. The interrelated activity elements can be seen below.

This activity builds on Hivos existing multi-stakeholder ‘Food Lab’ approach, implemented throughout its Sustainable Diets for All program, in Bandung and Jember since 2017. The platforms will be established in areas in the five cities where campaign activities will focus, and in two districts where we reach large numbers of producers, market traders and local consumers.

The Sustainable Diets for All program launched a Citizen Agency and Advocacy toolkit during the course of 2018.  The first phase of roll out supported Hivos advocacy leads in country and partners in defining citizen agency and exploring how to identify citizen led advocacy happening within their program as well as discuss how citizen led advocacy work could be further developed or deepened in the last phase of the program’s work. We are now entering phase two of the Citizen Agency and Advocacy toolkit roll-out by launching an Citizen Agency & Advocacy Learning Program, which will run from July 2019 to January 2020.

The program will aim to support and refine implementation of national and local advocacy by leveraging citizen agency approaches.

The objective is to create a citizen agency and advocacy capacity building program that uses the toolkit to provide tailored support to selected staff across the program in three areas:

1.         To strengthen citizen agency and advocacy understanding in the SD4A program.

2.         To identify or create space for citizen agency integration into partners existing advocacy plans.

3.         Review and sharpen advocacy strategic approaches, in consultation with constituent groups.
