Consultant for Gender and Public Finance (National Consultant) Indonesia I. BACKGROUND The Government of Indonesia (GoI) has committed to address climate change including risks and vulnerabilities that could have implications to the national development agendas. Up to now, GoI has enacted several climate change policies, i.e RAN-GRK, RAN-API, and NDC. To finance the climate change actions, the government has to ensure that it not only has adequate funding but also to track and monitor the results of the programmes it implements. In addition to addressing the direct challenge of climate change, the GoI also needs to overcome the differential impact of climate change on gender. In Indonesia and other developing countries, many women work in the informal sector who depend on agricultural and plantation products. The changing climate increased the risk of natural disasters such as floods, heat waves and long droughts, which will be a high risk for women because they will lose their livelihoods. During the two RPJMN periods, climate change and gender... mainstreaming (PUG) have been defined as cross-sectoral development strategies . It is hoped that the implementation of PUG integration into the government planning and budgeting cycle can encourage the allocation of development resources to be more effective, accountable and fair in providing benefits to all Indonesian citizens, both men and women. As an effort to improve accountability and track the budget allocations, the budget tagging system is needed. Several thematic budget tagging themes are gender-responsive budget (ARG) with code (003), climate mitigation budget (004) and climate adaptation (007). However, there are still various challenges in the implementation of combined-theme budget tagging, particularly in carrying out a gender analysis pathway (GAP) on climate change outputs as the basis for combined-theme budget tagging. To support the implementation of combined-theme budget tagging (gender and climate change), then the development of guidance is needed. In this regard, SDF Project has supported the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection to develop technical guidance for gender-responsive climate budget tagging. To ensure the implementation, the consultant will be responsible to pilot the draft Technical Guidance for Gender-Responsive Climate Budget Tagging to two Ministries/Institutions. He/She will work together and under the supervision of the Technical Advisor for Development Finance, UNDP and Technical Associate for Public Climate Finance, Sustainable Development Finance (SDF) Project, UNDP Indonesia.
