GIZ Indonesia for the Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains in Indonesia (SASCI): Administrative Specialist - Jakarta based

 The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations on behalf of the German Government.

The „Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains in Indonesia (SASCI)“ project, in collaboration with its main government partner, Ministry of Agriculture (specifically the Directorate General of Estate Crops) supports the Government of Indonesia in its efforts to reduce GHG emissions from deforestation and forest degradation by promoting sustainable supply chains for selected agricultural commodities (primarily but not exclusively palm oil and natural rubber) by independent smallholder farmers in Kapuas Hulu district, West Kalimantan.

The global program “Sustainability and Value Added in Agricultural Supply Chains” is part of the special initiative “ONE WORLD – No Hunger” (SEWOH). On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the program promotes the sustainability of selected agricultural supply chains in partner countries. The program implements the project “Sustainability and Value Added in Agricultural Supply Chains in Indonesia” (SASCI+). SASCI+ focuses on natural rubber, palm oil, cocoa, and coffee in two biosphere reserves in West Kalimantan and Central Sulawesi. SASCI+ is implemented together with the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture, the political partner of the project and in close cooperation with the bilateral GIZ portfolio related to agriculture and forestry.
