Geospatial Database Development and Analysis in Support of SEA
Geospatial Database Development and Analysis in support of Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for the 2020-2024 National Mid-term Development Plan (RPJMN)
Background: Indonesia and Denmark are cooperating through an Environmental Support Programme, with the current third programme phase (ESP3) running from 2013 to 2017. The overall ESP3 development objective is to support the Government of Indonesia (GoI) in reconciling economic growth with sustainable development through improved environmental management and climate change mitigation and adaptation. ESP3 is coordinated under the National Development Planning Ministry ( Bappenas ) with Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) as primary implementing partners.
Component 1 of ESP3 provides support to KLHK wit h activities aiming at providing technical support (international and domestic) to conduct selected SEAs to a high standard. The activit ies will contribute to Output 2.1, which is “Good quality practical/useful SEAs conducted and implemented on selected policies, plans, and programmes (PPPs) at national and local level”.
Following the Government Regulation No. 46 2016 on SEA procedures, there is an urgent need for providing high quality SEAs for all sectors which will contribute to the development of national Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) technical guidelines and strategies . Since this guidelines will be based on lessons-learned derived from SEA implementation in each sector, t here is a window of opportunity to build on these efforts and develop ‘model SEAs’ by providing international experti s e to the SEA development process.
This consultancy is aiming at supporting the National Development Planning Board (Bappenas) in elaborating a model SEA for the National Medium Term Development Plan 2020-2024 (RPJMN). The results of the SEA will be integrated into the plan and be referenced by similar plans at sub-national levels. Since the initial RPJMN development process is about to start and and the SEA is expected to commence in the early stages, there is a need to provide comprehensive, reliable, and easy-to-access datasets and analysis. At present, a geospatial database (GIS database) is urgently required by the 2020-2024 RPJMN developers and the SEA team, to feed into the chosen methods and approaches of the RPJMN development, which among others will make use of spatial and system dynamic analysis in the decision making process. A rarher comprehensive geospatial database was developed for a previous national planning process in 2014 and should be used as basis for the new and updated geospatial database.
This work is closely coordinated with the Directorate of Environment under Bappenas and the Directorate of Pollution Impact Prevention on Regional and Sectoral Policies under KLHK which is the national authority of SEA procedures and standards.
Objective: The objective of the consultancy is to provide expert technical assistance to the Directorate of Environment, Deputy for Maritime and Natural Resources, Bappenas in developing a national geospatial database and analysis to be used by the RPJMN development team and its SEA working group to support the decision making process. The consultant team is expected to develop a geospatial database from available datasets and resources, provide technical inputs to the RPJMN and SEA team on spatial dynamic analysis , and develop outputs in the form of data and analyses and possibly a computerbased analytical user-interface of the available data. The result of the analysis is expected to support program screening, sizing, and mapping, as part of the analyses in relation to the SEA of the 2020- 2024 RPJMN.
The assignment will include planning and conducting a number of meetings/FGDs with related data owners and stakeholders and visits to selected regions for data verification and validation . The costs of these meetings and visits are included in the overall budget for the assignment.
Scope: The consultancy will require approximately 140 man-days. The team should consist of a combination of international and Indonesian experts.
Maximum budget: Maximum budget is 600,000 DKK.
Timing: The work shall be carried out from end May to end mid October 2017.
Deadline for applications: 27 April 2017, at 16:00 Danish time
The standard application form should be used. Applications not using the standard form may be rejected. Applications received after the deadline shall be rejected.
