Background

The

Indonesia (GoI).
 
GGGI
is an international organization founded in June 2010. GGGI is
dedicated to pioneering and diffusing a new model of economic growth, known as
“green growth”. This simultaneously targets key aspects of economic
performance, such as poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion and
those of environmental sustainability, such as mitigation of climate change and
security of access to clean water. GGGI’s approach is particularly suited to
developing countries because it starts from broad-based progress in living
standards and growth.
Since 2013, GGGI has worked in close
collaboration with the Government of Indonesia in the GoI-GGGI Green Growth
Program (GGP).
 
The
Jakarta office is offering a position within a varied and dynamic team, who

the GoI-GGGI Green Growth Program.

The role will involve extensive travel to Central and East Kalimantan. 
 

Role
overview

The

by providing technical assistance to the GoI at multiple levels on how to
achieve green growth. He/she will play in active role in identifying the
