"National Consultant to Support the National Coordination Team – Capturing Demand
The Joint Indonesian - German Project " South-South and Triangular Cooperation and Networks for Global Governance" (SSTC/NGG), Implemented by GIZ
Indonesia is playing an important role on the international stage. As an active member of the G20, the ASEAN and the High–Level Panel on the Global Development Framework beyond 2015, the country has taken responsibility in shaping global policies. One key element of this development is the heavy engagement of Indonesia in the area of South–South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) which also directly corresponds to the Sustainable Development Goals; goal 17 in particular.
To further improve the coordination and also to develop binding standards for the related institutions in implementing their programs in SSTC, a National Coordination Team for South–South and Triangular Cooperation (NCT) has been established. This team comprises of the Ministry of National Development Planning (Badan/Kementerian Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional/BAPPENAS), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Kementerian Luar Negeri), the Ministry of Finance (Kementerian Keuangan) and the Ministry of State Secretariat (Kementerian Sekretariat Negara).
Since its establishment in 2010, NCT has successfully developed coordination mechanisms between its member ministries, line ministries and other relevant partners and stakeholders. Through the establishment and continuous development of the NCT Indonesia has been able to strengthen its international position in the SSTC sector. Further, the Medium–term National Development Plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional/ RPJMN 2015–2019) defines a one gate policy that will lead to the establishment of a single entity to implement Indonesia’s SSTC in the future.
Commissioned by German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the joint Indonesian–German “South–South andTriangular Cooperation and Networks for Global Governance” (SSTC/NGG)implemented by GIZ will seek to further strengthen Indonesia in SSTCCooperation and in its role within the jointly identified Networks for Global Governance.
