Private Sector Engagement technical assistant and economic analysis Consultant

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 (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) 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 subnational level, APIK seeks to build the capacity of local governments in East Java, Southeast Sulawesi, and Maluku to address CCA & DRR through planning and operations, public outreach, and the institutionalization of resilience-building practices in day-to-day activities. With a regional office located in the respective provinces, the Project works in targeted landscapes with the communities on the front lines of climate change and disaster resilience in the target districts to implement measures and link those measures to the relevant government processes in a holistic systems approach.
