Project Overview

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations on behalf of the German Government. The ASEAN region is one of the fastest growing regions in the world with high population growth and rapid urbanisation. Cities and municipalities lack the resources and capacity to ensure clean air and land, as well as basic supplies in the water, waste and energy sectors, although these areas are the key to a good quality urban environment and services of general interest. In 2016, the volume of waste generated in Southeast Asia reached around 150 million tonnes and is one of the big challenges and critical problems the region is facing.

 

Cities and municipalities, particularly in the less developed and more rural ASEAN Member States (AMS), face considerable difficulties in ensuring basic waste management services for their citizens. Against this background, the ASEAN Municipal Solid Waste Management Enhancement (AMUSE) was initiated. The project is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH in close cooperation with the ASEAN Secretariat (ASEC).

 

The project aims to contribute to an improved environmental quality in medium-sized cities in the ASEAN region through strengthening the competences for optimizing waste disposal and recycling in small and medium-sized tourist cities. This project will particularly provide service packages in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. The project is under the purview of the ASEAN Senior Officials on the Environment (ASOEN) and overseen by its relevant ASEAN Working Groups. Based at the ASEAN Secretariat in Jakarta, Indonesia, the AMUSE project is looking for a Technical Expert who shall in close coordination with ASEC support and coordinate the project implementation with technical knowledge.

 

GIZ seeks a qualified Indonesian candidate for this position.
