Hivos seeks qualified candidates for the position of Lead Analyst on Localizing SDGs.

 

Background

Through the Strategic Partnership program, Hivos supports independent journalists, activists, businesses and civil society organizations in their efforts to influence policies and practices in sustainable food, green and inclusive energy and open contracting both at the national and subnational level. The program is a Citizen Agency consortium funded by Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

Indonesia has issued Presidential Regulation No. 59/2017 on SDGs implementation down to the sub-national. According to the regulation, governors are expected to report the achievement of SDGs implementation at the sub-national level. This implies that localizing SDGs from the national to the sub-national level becomes important. Strategic Partnership program in Indonesia views that localizing SDGs needs to be concrete, to be implemented at the sub-national levels.

Strategic Partnership program consists of three issues (food, green, and inclusive energy) which also contributes to the achievements of SDGs in Indonesia. Aside from the three issues can contribute as standalone, we view that the linkage between the three issues may accelerate the achievement of the related goals; namely goal 1, 2, 5, 7, 12, 13, and 16 of the SDGs.

The program requires a team / individual to carry out a baseline research at sub-national level to provide information on the implementation of SDGs at the local level through the issue of food, green and inclusive energy and open contracting processes. .

Strategic Partnership (SP) in Indonesia (Energy, Food, and Open Contracting) are working in the same region in Indonesia (Central Java), with our partners. These partners are currently monitoring the development of SDGs. Therefore, this provides an opportunity to have collaborations between all SPs, on the same issue to localize SDGs.
