The Activity

Tetra Tech is implementing a donor-funded civil society grants activity in Indonesia which seeks to create a better enabling environment, by which vulnerable and marginalised community members, including women and people with disabilities, are more actively involved in infrastructure planning and delivery. The activity involves a collaborative partnership between the Government of Indonesia (GoI), civil society and the broader community, and includes employment and economic empowerment opportunities. 

The activity will provide small grants and support the capacity development of local civil society organisations (CSOs) and disabled persons organisations (DPOs) to undertake gender and social inclusion-focused action research, facilitate community engagement and participation in infrastructure processes. CSOs/DPOs will engage with the private sector, undertake community-led monitoring and run awareness-raising campaigns. By assisting local CSOs/DPOs to engage with local governments and report on good practices the activity will inform evidence-based policies and practices on infrastructure and civil society engagement that can be translated into local regulations. 

The Position

The Team Leader will lead the activity and be responsible for setting and maintaining the activity’s strategic direction in line with donor and GoI priorities and the End of Activity Outcomes.
