Lowongan GIZ Indonesia for the SUPA (‘Sustainable Use of Peatland and Haze Mitigation in ASEAN) programme: Regional Technical Advisor

The initiative supports the implementation of the ASEAN Programme on ‘Sustainable Management of Peatland Ecosystems’ (APSMPE) under the overall shared objective ‘to promote the sustainable management of peatlands in the ASEAN region through collective actions and to enhance the cooperation to support and sustain local livelihoods, reduce the risk of fire and associated haze and contribute to global environmental management.’ The programme SUPA has two components.

Component 1 focuses on ‘peatland governance’ and is to be implemented by GIZ. Based on the intervention logic, the implementation of this component is structured into three work areas:

Work Area 1: Strengthening regional cooperation by strengthening ASEAN
