GIZ Indonesia for the Climate and Biodiversity Governance in Indonesia Project: Coordinator for IKI Hub Component

 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. We work to shape a future worth living in over 120 countries around the world.


Indonesia plays an important role in achieving the targets set in the Paris Agreement and the Convention of Biological Diversity. The country is one of the ten largest greenhouse gas emitters worldwide with emissions continue to rise until 2030 according to the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). Moreover, Indonesia is considered to be one of the 17 mega-diverse country, with 2 of the world’s 25 hotspots, among other ranks of the word’s center of flora and fauna diversity. Prior to CBD ratification, in 1993, Bappenas and KLHK introduce Biodiversity Action Plan for Indonesia, followed by several revised documents known as Indonesia Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (IBSAP).   


However, Indonesia also suffers from biodiversity loss and species extinction, due to the impact of climate change. Besides being an archipelagic state, Indonesia is severely impacted by the consequences of climate change. The rich and unique biodiversity of the country is threatened by unsustainable practices.  Committed to tackle these challenges, the Indonesian government has been developing a climate and biodiversity policy framework. However, its successful implementation requires the harmonization with national development planning, a coordinated approach of relevant actors at all levels as well as sufficient capacities and funding. An additional challenge is the Corona pandemic and the necessary measures to enable a "new normal". Since 2010, main elements of IBSAP are integrated into RPJM and RKP. In RPJM 2020-2024, climate and biodiversity policy is further emphasized as national development priority. 


Against this background, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the Indonesian Ministry for National Development Planning (BAPPENAS) agreed to jointly implement the Climate and Biodiversity Hub Indonesia Project.  The project supports the Indonesian government to strengthen the mainstreaming and implementation of its climate and biodiversity policy. Partners are the Ministry of National Development Planning (Bappenas), the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), other related line ministries as well as state and non-state stakeholders at national and subnational levels.


The project also serves as the International Climate Initiative (IKI) Interface in Indonesia. Within its IKI interface function, the project facilitates and enhances networking and information sharing among the multitude of IKI-funded projects implementing activities in Indonesia through the IKI Hub component.

The IKI Hub facilitates the networking and communication between project implementers and with the Indonesian government.


To support implementation of the project in Indonesia, we are looking for a Coordinator for the IKI Hub.
