Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is owned by the German government and with operations around the globe, GIZ provides services in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ also works on behalf of other public and private sector clients both in Germany and overseas.

GIZ operates in more than 130 countries and employs approximately 17,000 staff worldwide.

In Southeast Asia, the agri-food sector is of key significance and has the potential to become the “kitchen of the world”. The domestic and international demand for safe food products of greater quality and quantity, along with the need to manage scarce natural resources, drives agricultural development policies towards the concept of "sustainable agri-food systems". Global and regional policy emphasis is therefore put on the increase of sustainable agricultural production. This is derived from the change of consumer preferences and industry interest towards food safety as well as increasingly strict requirements for the export of agricultural goods. The sustainability of agrifood systems - in its economic, social and environmental dimensions - will be a key factor for competitiveness in complex global agri-food markets.

The Project “ASEAN Sustainable Agrifood Systems", being part of the "ASEAN-German Programme on Response to Climate Change: Agriculture, Forestry and Related Sectors (short: GAP-CC)"  supports the development of regionally-coordinated policies and strategies for sustainable agrifood systems. Towards realization of ASEAN Community by 2015 and beyond and in the light of the planned ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), the Project also promotes sustainable cross-border value chains jointly with public decision-makers, agricultural enterprises as well as farmers’ and private associations. Furthermore, farmers are supported with the implementation of sustainable production technologies and practices in the regionThe Project is seeking for 1 (one) qualified candidate for the position of IT and Communication Officer to be based in Medan, North Sumatera.
