Specifics of Recruitment

Introduction:

In Indonesia, GGGI   is working with the Ministry of National Development Planning (BAPPENAS), the   Ministry of Environment and Forestry, the Coordinating Ministry of Economic   Affairs, the Special   Economic Zones Council, the Ministry of Finance, and the provinces of East and   Central Kalimantan to mainstream green growth into development and economic planning and to help design, finance, and demonstrate bankable green growth   projects.

Development of an effective Green Growth   Planning cycle requires development of a comprehensive set of green growth   indicators to set targets and measure progress towards green growth, and   impact assessment tools to measure the contribution of targeted policy and   investment on green growth performance.

Law 32/2009 on environmental protection, followed   by Government Regulation No 46/2016 on implementation guidelines for   Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) have opened fantastic opportunities   for mainstreaming Green Growth into development planning. The newly developed   regulation provides a legal basis for the integration of environmental and   social sustainability in key planning documents such as spatial plans, long   and mid-term development plans, or strategic programs. SEAs allow to project   and quantify the social and economic impacts of targeted policy, and to   develop – in a participatory manner, adequate mitigation strategies and   alternative scenarios. By law, the recommendations of SEA have to be   integrated into planning documents. This opens up opportunities to   institutionalise participative policy development processes, integrating both   scientific analysis and public input into development plans and policymaking.

GGGI is supporting the MoEF’s efforts to   promote implementation of best practice in SEA by contributing both to the   development of methodological best practice, supporting capacity building   activities, and developing demonstration SEAs to test methodological best   practice.

In parallel, GGGI is also supporting efforts   from the East Kalimantan provincial government to mainstream green growth   into development planning.

In line with this strategy, GGGI   is supporting the development of an SEA for a Provincial Strategic Estate in   Maloy (KSP Maloy). The SEA will aim to set a benchmark for best practice, and   notably integrate and introduce innovative methodological approaches, with a   particular focus on assessing and eventually valuing the impact of   alternative scenarios to facilitate decision-making.

Objectives/Purpose of the Assignment:  

BAPPEDA Kaltim has requested GGGI’s   assistance in developing a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for KSP   Maloy The RPJM-P SEA will be conducted starting from mid-2017, in accordance   with the guidelines provided under Government regulation No 46/2016.

A first draft has been completed to assess   the potential social and environmental impacts of the baseline development   scenario and propose an alternative scenario mainstreaming green growth into   planning. Such scenario and mitigation strategies need to be integrated into   the draft provincial regulation governing the development of Maloy estate. In   particular, the delineation of the estate will be revised in April. Changes   in delineation will need to be reflected into the SEA report.

The report will need to be revised to reflect   recent changes to the KSP Maloy draft regulation, and its recommendations   will need to be integrated into the final draft regulation through intensive   consultation with the provincial government.

 

 

Scope of Work:

The work shall begin in May 2017.   The consultant will be responsible for the finalization of the SEA study   based the revision of KSP Maloy delineation, and to lead consultation with   relevant East Kalimatan stakeholders to promote the integration of the SEA   into the draft regulation on KSP Maloy (Perda RTR KSP Maloy).

At least 5 trips to East Kalimantan   are expected, following GGGI’s travel rules and regulations. The cost of   travel should not be included in the proposal.
