Pact is recruiting a short-term consultant to support the USAID Green Invest Asia project, a technical assistance facility working to catalyze private investment for sustainable agriculture and forest landscapes across Asia. By 2022, USAID Green Invest Asia aims to mobilize $400 million of private finance for sustainable production in agriculture and forestry that will reduce investment barriers and result in a reduction or sequestration of 25 million tons CO2e of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We currently operate across Southeast Asia with an initial focus on Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
USAID Green Invest Asia supports mid-growth agriculture and forestry companies with strategies, assessments and advice to improve their sustainable commodity production and business practices. In doing so, we ready companies for investment and help them access sustainable financing from banks, impact funds, climate funds and other institutions in our financial network. USAID Green Invest Asia facilitates a pipeline of partner businesses involved in commodities including timber (i.e. teak, acacia, eucalyptus, natural forest concessions), rubber, coconut, coffee, cacao, cinnamon, cashew, rice, biomass, and other commodities.
