Communications & EngagementBali, Indonesia
Legally established in early 2014, WRI Indonesia builds on WRI’s global 20-year history in the country and the official establishment of WRI Indonesia office has strengthened our impacts on the ground in recent years. Our works are divided into terrestrial (forest, food, and land use) and non-terrestrial (climate, energy, cities, and the ocean) portfolios.
One of the initiatives under the nexus of energy, cities and transport is called: Bali Climate and Green Development programme . The Bali Climate and Green Development Initiative is a five-year program on the decarbonization of Bali through renewable energy transition, e-mobility, and climate entrepreneurship and leadership to achieve Bali Net-Zero Emission in 2045. The initiative is a collaborative effort between implementing partners within a Project Management Office (PMO), which will synergize Bali local actors and stakeholders in accelerating the clean energy transition, implementing electric vehicle, and strengthening the local communities’ involvement in the green development agenda.
World Resources Institute (WRI) Indonesia, Institute for Essential Services Reform (IESR) and New Energy Nexus have co-designed a multi-year’s program for Bali Climate and Green Development Initiative with our local actors and partners in Bali, to demonstrate how a rapid, province-scale effort with a focus on energy decarbonization and climate solutions can benefit local people, the economy, and the environment, while at the same time providing a strong foundation for Bali Net-Zero Emission goals by 2045 and contributing to national climate targets. This project’s theory of change is adapted from the program to ensure synergy and collaboration between partners to achieve our overarching goal.
One of the initial steps taken to start this program is to develop the communications strategy of the Bali Climate and Green Development Initiative. WRI Indonesia, IESR and New Nexus Energy as well as the implementing partners of Bali PMO have identified three main stages in communications strategies, to be implemented throughout the period of the project:
To support and manage the implementation of the Communication Strategies, Bali PMO would like to engage with a Communication Specialist based in Bali.
The Communications Specialist will support Bali PMO by developing and implementing communications activities as well as communication products based on the communication strategies developed together with the partners while managing multiple communications channels (such as website, social media, blog, publications, media relations, and events), and ensuring smooth and responsive communications coordination among partners and stakeholders.
This post will report directly to WRI Indonesia’s Senior Communications Coordinator, with day-to-day coordination and supervision from Senior Lead, Bali Programme Management Unit. This position will closely liaise with Communication Managers from Bali PMO Partners. The post holder will be based in Bali with high travel frequencies around Bali.
