Project Support for Inclusive Gastronomy Capacity Building

Hivos Southeast Asia seeks qualified Indonesian candidates for the position of Project Support for Inclusive Gastronomy Capacity Building.


In January 2016, Hivos together with IIED launched a 5-year strategic partnership with the Dutch Government to transform the food system and promote sustainable diets under the Sustainable Diets for All (SD4All) program. The program supports civil society organizations to increase their capacity to influence policy and practices of market and government actors through citizen research, action and related advocacy to promote sustainable diets for all.

Meanwhile, from August 2019 to March 2020, Hivos is currently implementing the Inclusive Gastronomy (Idea Accelerator) project in Bandung. One of the outputs of the project is the production of a board game aimed to educate the community (especially children) on healthy and balanced diets. Since SD4All’s partners Tanoker and NTFP-EP have educational activities in the local level, the board game will be a potential tool for them to better implement these activities. Hence, a capacity building activity will be organized for these two partners.


The capacity building is aimed as a training of trainers (TOT) for the staff of both Tanoker and NTFP-EP to use the board game for their respective activities.
