Job Expired

Project Overview

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a German implementing organization which provides services worldwide in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.

 

Project 1: The Initiative Resource Efficiency and Climate Action (75%)

The G20 emerging economies are characterized by strong industrial growth. This is associated with increasing resource consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. G20 countries currently address these challenges through the G20 Resource efficiency dialogue and roadmap. Against this background, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports efforts to promote resource efficiency and climate protection in G20 emerging countries. The global project “Initiative Resource Efficiency and Climate Action” aims to support capacity development in selected G20 emerging countries (Argentina, Mexico and Indonesia). The project strengthens the necessary skills of decision-makers in the public sector and supports the implementation of measures to promote resource efficiency for national companies. It also helps to sensitize partner countries to improved data management and to use methodological approaches to quantify the contribution of resource efficiency to climate protection. In addition, the project supports international dialog and cooperation processes and measures and strategies to increase resource efficiency, including the G20 Resource Efficiency Dialogue and Roadmap. The project started in Indonesia in 2018 with a set of initial supporting measures and will expand its portfolio in a second phase from 2021 till 2024.

 

Project 2: The NACAG initiative (25 %)

The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) initiated the NACAG (Nitric Acid Climate Action Group), a global initiative with the main goal of mitigating global N2O emissions in the nitric acid producing sector. Its vision is to incentivize the installation of appropriate abatement technologies in all nitric acid production plants worldwide. The initiative provides all governments and plant operators with guidance and information on technological and regulatory issues regarding N2O abatement. Moreover, NACAG makes available financial support for the installation of abatement technology. This financial support is subject to the condition that partner countries take full responsibility for the mitigation activities after 2024 – for example in the context of their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs).

 

BMU has commissioned GIZ to implement the Secretariat of the NACAG. Its main task is to coordinate the implementation of all activities related to the initiative. This comprises technical support to both governments and companies as well as financial support to companies. Indonesia has already joined the NACAG initiative by signing the NACAG Declaration. This makes Indonesia eligible for technical support. The next step would be the signing of the political commitment to permanently reduce N2O emissions, which would render Indonesia eligible for financial support.
