MADANI – Senior Consultant for the 2022 Indonesia Civil Society Forum

Building on the success of the 2018 and 2021 Indonesia Civil Society Forums (ICSF), USAID and MADANI Civil Society Support Initiative will, in collaboration with other development partners and Indonesian civil society organizations (CSOs), host the second Indonesian Civil Society Forum in March-April 2022 on the theme of “Diversity, Social Inclusion and Civil Society in Indonesia”.

The Indonesia Civil Society Forum is an annual civil society forum to discuss and support issues for civil society and CSOs in Indonesia, including at sub national level. ICSF will convene local organizations for networking, capacity development, and acknowledgement for innovations and smart practices. The ICSF is a collaborative effort between international development partners, civil society, the Government of Indonesia, national media, and the private sector.

The event is tentatively scheduled for the two days in March or April, using a hybrid in-person-online design. Speakers and some participants may come to a venue, while other will join online. Special design considerations and technical solutions will be used to ensure that the Forum is interactive, collaborative, and participatory. The design of the ICSF is a combination of key-note speakers, plenary talk show sessions, and parallel group sessions. The estimated size is 350 participants over two days.

The ICSF is organized by FHI 360 through its USAID-MADANI Civil Society Support Initiative in close collaboration with USAID. The organizers have set up a Steering Committee, comprised of CSO experts from key development partners and relevant Government of Indonesia agencies to discuss the design of the forum, develop key issues and session topics, identify speakers, and resource persons, and determine the expected outputs. In addition to a consultant, MADANI will also contract an event organizer that will design, plan, and implement the actual online event using a combination of communication software, digital tools, and other IT solutions.
