GIZ Indonesia for the ASEAN Municipal Solid Waste Management Enhancement (AMUSE) Project: Administrative Specialist

 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 ASEAN region is one of the fastest growing regions in the world with high population growth and rapid urbanisation. Cities and municipalities lack the resources and capacity to ensure clean air and land, as well as basic supplies in the water, waste and energy sectors, although these areas are the key to a good quality urban environment and services of general interest. In 2016, the volume of waste generated in Southeast Asia reached around 150 million tonnes which is one of the big challenges and critical problems the region is facing.


Cities and municipalities, particularly in the less developed and more rural ASEAN Member States (AMS), face considerable difficulties in ensuring basic waste management services for their citizens. Against this background, the ASEAN Municipal Solid Waste Management Enhancement (AMUSE) was initiated. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in close cooperation with the ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC).


The project aims to contribute to improved environmental quality in medium-sized cities in the ASEAN region by strengthening the competencies for optimizing waste disposal and recycling in small and medium-sized tourist cities. This project will particularly provide service packages in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. Based at the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta, Indonesia, GIZ seeks a qualified Indonesian candidate for one (1) position of:
