Lowongan Province Liaison Consultant

Position Title: Province Liaison Consultant

 Detailed Description of Tasks to be Performed:

MADANI is a five-year, $19..8 million, USAID-funded project implemented by FHI 360 to strengthen local government accountability and communal tolerance in Indonesia by improving and sustaining local civil society’s capacity, legitimacy and sustainability.

MADANI’s vision is to leave Indonesia a better functioning, more tolerant, and more resilient democracy, demonstrated by strengthened local democratic practices, improved local government performance and responsiveness, better accountability of frontline service delivery, and more effective and inclusive mechanisms for community-level participation and transparency. In each jurisdiction, people in positions of power and leadership will be encouraged to model and champion government accountability and communal tolerance; and citizens will become more receptive to these ideas through positive messaging and increased media and digital literacy brought about by MADANI programming.

MADANI will work toward this vision by providing grants and technical assistance (TA) directly to targeted subnational civil society organizations (CSOs) in 32 districts and cities in eight provinces[1] to improve their operational capacities and systems, build stronger ties with communities and local governments, and support an improved environment and more sustainable means of mobilizing financial resources, including from the government and private sector. By focusing most of its support on local CSOs, MADANI will source assistance directly to the organizations best positioned to positively affect decentralized democracy and good governance. This strategy is aligned with USAID’s Journey to Self-Reliance (J2SR), as it aims to end the need for foreign assistance by focusing on building the capacity and self-reliance of civil society, local government, and, ultimately, the Indonesian people. Through replication, by Year 5, MADANI will reach a total of 64 districts. The program goal is that local civil society will better be able to advocate for government accountability and communal tolerance at the local level, initially in the following fields:

1.      Anti-corruption, including awareness raising and local budget transparency;

2.      Frontline service delivery, including citizen report cards, transparency and compliance with minimum service standards;

3.      Natural resource governance, including awareness raising on land use licensing and use of village funds to improve community natural resource management;

4.      Health, including minimum service standards and health insurance for maternal and neo-natal health;

5.      Village funds transparency, including improving community engagement in planning and oversight of village budgets; and

6.      Communal tolerance, including raising awareness on stereotyping and spreading disinformation.

The three organizational issues are internal CSO-oriented, around capacity, legitimacy, and sustainability. MADANI will work closely with civil society organizations in Indonesia to (1) strengthen their organization capacity and the effectiveness and efficiency of their work; (2) improve the legitimacy of CSOs in the eyes of local government and communities; (3) bolster efforts to improve the sustainability of CSO to bring out social change through improving the enabling environment for civil society and mobilizing local resources.
