Consultant for Gender, Equity, and Human Rights Integration
WRI Indonesia is a national entity (Yayasan) associated with the World Resources Institute (WRI), a global environmental research organization that turns big ideas into action at the nexus of environment, economic opportunity, and human well-being. WRI employs three approaches, namely: Count It, Change It, Scale It.
WRI works with various stakeholders in the natural resources sector to support policy and management that are both profitable and sustainable. WRI has worked with leaders in more than 50 countries for more than 30 years, with offices in the United States, Brazil, China, Europe, India, and Indonesia.
Launched in early 2014, WRI Indonesia builds on WRI’s 10-year history in the country focusing on forests and land use governance and strengthens our impact on the ground. In the short-to-medium term, WRI Indonesia aims to expand its presence and portfolio to include climate, energy, as well as cities and transportation programs.
Indonesia is home to one of the largest tropical forests in the world; a rich and diverse ecosystem teeming with life. But deforestation and the conversion of these forests for agricultural purposes have made Indonesia one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases and a significant contributor to climate change. With a largely coastal population whose livelihoods rely on the land and water, Indonesian is also particularly susceptible to the effects of climate change.
Despite the efforts of the Indonesian government in recent years, little progress has been made towards implementing policies to reduce land-based emissions. Reducing these emissions while also strengthening climate resilience through adaptation and mitigation requires politically relevant actions.
This initiative will respond to these complex challenges by supporting the efforts of local policy-research organizations—think tanks—to gather evidence. Urgent actions on climate change adaptation and mitigation are required. Indonesian emissions reduction approaches that are also aimed at strengthening resilience require politically relevant integration of environmental, economic, and social issues.
Gender, equity, and human-rights issue have been one of the core discussions in the development work. Having a direct implementation on the ground, WRI Indonesia realizes the importance of integrating gender, equity and human rights component into their projects design, implementation on the ground and lastly, integrating gender equity and social inclusion on WRI research.
In this light, WRI aims to seek a consultant position for gender integration specialist to support our gender equality and social inclusion across WRI program and research portfolio. Principle duties include developing technical resources (e.g. guidebook) to strengthen gender integration and social inclusion, conducting gender and social inclusion analyses and assessments, and designing and facilitating gender and social inclusion-related training for all staffs.
