Consultant for
SMART Technical Assistant-West Papua (2 positions)
(code: SMART-Assistant)

As the world’s largest archipelago nation in area and population, Indonesia is highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. With 30% of the world’s mangroves (>3 million ha) and 22 million ha of peatlands, peat and mangrove ecosystems (PME) provide adaptation and resilience capacity for vulnerable communities, including coastal protection, flood control, water quality, and food security. Indonesia’s PMEs also boast some of the highest ecosystem carbon densities (mangroves=1,023 MgCha-1 and peatlands=2,658 MgCha-1) and hence great capacity for mitigation. However, PMEs are amongst Indonesia’s most threatened ecosystems. No peatlands in North Sumatra (275,000 ha) and West Papua (1 million ha) are protected, despite regulations requiring protection of deep peat. Less than 10% of West Papua’s mangroves (650,000 ha) are protected despite having the highest diversity of mangrove species in the world.

To address those challenges, Conservation International (CI)l is just awarded a project called Mitigation, Adaptation through Conservation and Sustainable Livelihoods in Indonesia's Peat and Mangrove Ecosystems funded under International Climate Initiative (IKI). Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The project will increase climate change resilience of highly vulnerable communities and biodiversity, while substantially mitigating GHG emissions in Indonesia by accelerating large-scale conservation and effective management of peat and mangrove ecosystems (PMEs). In the priority regions of West Papua, the project will approach the SMART techniques to measuring and evaluating PMEs that are critical for adaptation and mitigation.

SMART (Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool) is a suite of tools for measuring, evaluating and improving the effectiveness of site-based conservation and wildlife law enforcement patrols. It is designed to be simple to use in a world of limited capacity and resources. The SMART Approach combines standardized patrol data collection, site-based database management and decision-making, with an emphasis on capacity building and best practices for protection. This approach, now adopted in >140 sites around the world, provides protected area managers and community groups the ability to empower staff, boost motivation, increase efficiency and promote credible and transparent monitoring of the effectiveness of anti-poaching efforts. SMART provides protected area managers with the ability to quantitatively assess impact, adjust strategies and enhance conservation success.

To implement the IKI project, the CI requires SMART technical assistant. The position will support SMART Consultant to coordinating and technical assistance for SMART training and data collection.
