I. Organizational Context
The Government of Indonesia established the Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF) decree in September 2009. The ICCTF shall be nationally managed, and is part of the Government’s commitment to implement the Jakarta Commitment to enhance national ownership and improve aid coordination in response to climate change.
In this framework, the Government and UNDP shall jointly establish and implement the project titled “Preparatory Arrangement for the Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (PREP-ICCTF)”. Under Terms of the signed Letter of Agreement (September 2009), the objectives of the Project shall be to:
(1) Provide support to priority climate change initiatives as prioritized by the Government, during an interim period, while the ICCTF is being established;
(2) Provide support and development for establishment of the ICCTF; and
(3) Support capacity development needs of the Government of Indonesia for the efficient and effective implementation of the ICCTF.
PREP-ICCTF shall enable the Government and ICCTF governance entities (the Steering Committee, Technical Committee and Secretariat) to gradually assume full operational responsibility of the trust fund until a National Trustee is appointed.
The ICCTF Secretariat, which also acts as the PREP-ICCTF Project Management Unit, has been operational since February 2010. The Secretariat has started administering the trust fund operationally and supports the functions of the ICCTF Steering Committee and Technical Committee. To implement the PREP-ICCTF, various staff will be hired and activities undertaken under the ICCTF Secretariat, which will also cover the functions of a standard UNDP Project Management Unit (PMU).
ICCTF operates in three thematic windows, namely: land based mitigation, energy, and resilience and adaptation. The ICCTF Steering Committee has approved three pilot projects to be funded in the first batch funding of ICCTF. The pilot projects covers the area of energy conservation (energy window, implemented by the Ministry of Industry), sustainable peatland management (land based mitigation window, implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture), and public awareness raising (resilience and adaptation window, implemented by the Agency for Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics). The Letter of Agreement (LoA) of the pilot projects was signed in September 2010, and the projects are expected to finish by December 2011.
ICCTF governance is currently reviewing the development str`tegy of ICCTF National Trust Fund and preparing an advancement of ICCTF Secretariat function by establishing new units to anticipate the upcoming more complex functions and work loads of ICCTF operation.
Under the guidance and direct supervision of Energy Window Officer, the Energy Window Assistant is responsible to support the activities, project appraisal and funded project implementation in Energy Window. The Energy Window Assistant will report to the Energy Window Officer.
The Energy Window Assistant works in close collaboration with the Monitoring and Evaluation of PREP-ICCTF, the Communication Associate of PREP-ICCT, the Project Associate of PREP-ICCTF, UNDP, Bappenas, executing agencies, and other line ministries on ICCTF operation as required for the administrative or documentation issues and exchange of information.
