Vacancies at Mercy Corps Indonesia (Semarang Based)

Dear All,
Please find below open positions.
We are trying to find the best possible candidates to make team stronger.

TRANSFORM Program
PROGRAM SUMMARY:
Mercy Corps Indonesia and its partners – EcoMetrix Solutions Group (ESG), AtmaConnect (Atma), Mercy Corps Indonesia (YMCI) and the Semarang City Development Planning Agency (Bappeda) – are implementing a scale-up grant to build flood resilience for urban communities that face frequent and severe flood risk in the downstream of Garang River Basin, Semarang, Indonesia. Trans boundary flood risk management through governance and innovative information technology (TRANSFORM) project will take an integrated approach that incentives multi-stakeholder coordination and action for flood resilience at a Basin level through access to cutting-edge, user friendly information and decision-making tools.
Since 2008, Mercy Corps Indonesia has worked with the Semarang City Government, universities, private sector and community action groups to study and raise awareness around the city’s vulnerabilities, support development of resilience strategies and mobilize city projects across flood prone areas. The work has been implemented as part of the Rockefeller-funded Asian Cities Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN), and more recently, as part of the Zurich-funded Community Flood Resilience Measurement Program.
 
Under the Water Window Challenge of Global Resilience Partnership, the Mercy Corps Indonesia-led Team will scale its approach from a city to a Basin-level, engaging government, communities, and the private sector upstream and outside of the city’s administrative boundaries to tackle the major drivers of downstream flood risk. The initiative will apply ESII Tools developed by ESG to research land use practice in the upstream areas that affecting downstream areas, analyzing, and highlighting cost benefit value for potential actions that can incentivize communities and ecosystems. TRANSFORM will also apply AtmaGo, a tested free-of-charge, mobile-based app that provides an effective, low-cost communication tool for communities to share vital information on flood risks. In addition, TRANSFORM will enhance investment and implementation of trans boundary flood risk mitigation measures by designing interventions directly resulting from information emerging from the ESII tool on long-term flood risk reducing measures.
