GIZ Indonesia for the Reduce, Reuse, Recycle to Protect the Marine Environment and Coral Reefs (3RproMar) project: Private Sector Advisor

 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 project "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle to Protect the Marine Environment and Coral Reefs" supports the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member states in the improvement of implementation capacities for reducing land-based waste leakage to protect the seas. The project outcome includes four output areas. Based on the “ASEAN Framework of Action on Marine Debris” the regional cooperation and knowledge management among the ASEAN working groups will be enhanced. The second area of activity focuses on the development of national measures for waste leakage reduction within the focal ASEAN member states (Indonesia, Philippines, Viet Nam and Cambodia) as well as their transmission to strategies on local level. The third area of activity focuses on involving the private sector to develop approaches for waste leakage reduction along the value chain. Pilot projects along the value chain from sustainable consumption to enhanced waste collection and recycling will be implemented in a fourth area of activity in selected municipalities.


In Indonesia, one pilot will focus on the optimization of Waste prevention, collection, recycling of valuables and utilization of residual waste in a medium-sized city, while a second pilot aims to test approaches of Waste prevention and/or applied concepts of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) for certain packaging materials involving the private sector.


The Advisor will support and coordinate the project implementation with technical knowledge and will be responsible for contributing towards the achievement of the project’s contractual targets. This position focuses mainly on the implementation of Output 3 and 4, namely working with private sector along the value chain in Indonesia.
