Vacancy Announcement “Consultant to support development of BNPB’s Kota Tangguh Guidelines”

to support development of

Kota Tangguh guidelines


USAID’s five year “Adaptasi Perubahan Iklim
dan Ketangguhan” (APIK) Project supports the Government of Indonesia to
strengthen climate and disaster resilience, working in an integrated manner
from the national level down to the regional and community levels. In support
of this overall objective, APIK seeks to:

Mainstream climate change adaptation and
disaster risk reduction into national and sub-national governance frameworks;

Build the capacity of local communities and
the private sector to address climate change and weather-related natural
hazards; and

Support the use of information for climate and
disaster risk management among key stakeholders.

At the national level,
APIK provides technical assistance to national level ministries to strengthen
their understanding of climate change and the impact of weather-related natural
disasters, and to mainstream tools and approaches that facilitate the
systematic consideration of climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk
reduction (DRR) in their core planning, budgeting, and operations. Given the
cross-cutting nature of CCA/DRR, APIK works with economy-wide agencies—such as the Ministry of Planning (BAPPENAS) and the National Disaster
Management Agency (BNPB)—as well as technical ministries such as  Environment and Forestry (KLHK), Marine
Affairs and Fisheries (KKP), Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR),  Public Works and Public Housing (PUPERA),
Agrarian and Spatial Planning, and Agriculture (Kementan).

public in mid of October 2016 on DRR Day event.
