Indonesia continues to face deep and multi-sectoral impacts of COVID-19. As of mid-January 2021, the country has confirmed over 917,000 total cases and 26,000 deaths, and daily cases have reached a new high of 14,000– of which 3,500 are in Jakarta. The country’s micro, small and medium-d enterprises (MSMEs) have been disproportionately impacted and are struggling to survive. The economic shock is destroying jobs and livelihoods – with women, people with disabilities, youth, and those working in the informal economy most heavily affected. Although the Government has started to implement its vaccination programme, this is only expected to be completed in 2022.
Indonesia has to manage the dual objectives of protecting its economy – in particular its vulnerable MSMEs – in order to safeguard jobs, livelihoods and macro-economic stability; and preventing the further spread of COVID-19. To address this challenge, this Project will work in partnership with the Government to improve healthcare services, to support an inclusive multisectoral response, to develop fiscal policies to facilitate the economic recovery and to support MSMEs to mitigate the transmission of COVID-19 and to respond to and recover from the crisis. In line with Government strategy and policies, the Project will assist MSMEs to transition to the green economy and the digital economy in order to strengthen their long-term resilience and harness their contribution to building forward better. This will be achieved by building on UNDP’s existing programs with business incubators and business accelerators; and partnerships with the private sector, KADIN and civil society organizations to facilitate sustainability. The Project will partner with Japanese companies and organizations to strengthen MSMEs’ long-term competitiveness and resilience.
This position is under overall guidance of the National Project Manager. S/he supervises and leads the support staff of the Project Management Unit. The incumbent will coordinate with various units to support the large and highly complex project on finance, procurement, HR, security, communication, monitoring, reporting and project administration. (Note: Security is a key function can be covered under this position and should be factored as an essential project management/operational cost. However, security personnel are normally outsourced.)
