We’re looking for someone to work on sustainable production landscapes in Indonesia

Proforest is seeking a Senior Programme Manager to implement a new UK-funded initiative to support deforestation-free commodity supply chains in Indonesia.

Agricultural commodity and forestry companies, as well as national and sub-national governments are seeking to reduce deforestation driven by agricultural commodity production. However, these efforts are sometimes not aligned or coordinated; greater impact could be achieved by closer engagement between private sector and national or sub-nationally driven initiatives to reduce deforestation. Proforest’s new Production Landscapes Programme aims to address this by supporting effective private-public collaboration in production landscapes.

The programme’s goal is to develop practical engagement principles which will help supply chain companies to align their activities with national and sub-national policy processes and initiatives to reduce deforestation and achieve other social and environmental goals. The programme will focus on palm oil, rubber, cocoa and timber/fibre supply chains in Indonesia, Ghana, Liberia and Cameroon.

This position, based in Jakarta, Indonesia, is an exciting opportunity to coordinate the implementation and delivery of the Indonesia component of this initiative, working closely with counterparts in the above countries as well as the core team members based in Proforest’s office in the UK. The Senior Programme Manager will be responsible for coordinating engagement with government, private sector and civil society; awareness and capacity-building activities; as well as organising workshops and supporting the development of national guidance for deforestation-free commodities for supply chain companies. The successful candidate will also support the delivery of Proforest’s consultancy services in Southeast Asia.

The Production Landscapes Programme is funded by the Department for International Development’s (DFID) Forest Governance, Markets and Climate Programme (FGMC), which supports activities around the world related to policy and legal reforms that eliminate illegal logging, promote legal trade and ensure rights and benefits for poor people, local communities and indigenous people.
