Sustainable Finance Assistant – (Jakarta) – SC5 (For Indonesia Nationality Only)

  • Added Date: Tuesday, 26 November 2019
  • Deadline Date: Sunday, 01 December 2019
  • Organization: UNDP – United Nations Development Programme
  • Country: Indonesia
  • City: Jakarta
  • Contract Type: Service Contract (SC)
  • Post Level: SB3
  • “UNDP is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in about 170 countries and territories, including Indonesia, working to eradicate poverty while protecting the planet. UNDP supports implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In Indonesia, UNDP works with the Government to integrate SDGs into national plan and policies.”

    UNDP Indonesia is leveraging its experience in innovative financing by establishing an Innovative Financing lab that offers its services to UNDP and partners. The lab is a global test bed for meeting SDGs. The Lab is a multi-sectorial partnership delivering new models of financing towards SDGs. This is not about a single project, instrument, or initiatives. This is not short-term funding of impact. This is about enabling the flow of new capital to SDGs and innovating the financing environment.

    Innovative financing is approached by UNDP as a strategic lever for change, sitting at the core of the UNDP delivery system. This is a moment of great opportunity: there is arguably more development money available than at any other point in history; simultaneously there is a greater urgency for institutional change across the world. Because UNDP is serious about helping institutions deliver the SDGs, it seeks through the Lab to shape the logic of how money flows into local economies. The Innovative Financing Lab seeks to help institutions deliver on SDGs in an innovative and impactful way.

    The Innovative Finance Lab acts as a multilateral platform serving to engage international, regional and local actors from different sectors (public, private, non-profit, etc.) to seek and experiment with innovative finance approaches to society’s problems. The Innovative Finance Lab’s work is closely aligned with the Government’s priorities and structured around areas which include promoting innovation, evidence-based policy-making and alternative data for policy design and evaluation.

    To support the project, the Sustainable Finance Assistant’s post is established to provide effective and efficient support to the overall effort of UNDP and the Innovative Finance Lab through improvement of system, tools and mechanisms for policy and strategy planning, reporting, monitoring, analysis and evaluation.
