The Global Plastic Action Partnership (GPAP) aims to tackle one of the most difficult and pressing challenges facing our global commons – plastics pollution – in particular the plastic pollution of rivers, deltas and the ocean. By engaging with governments, regional bodies, international organisations, and business, as well as innovators and civil society organisations, the GPAP seeks to avert the growth in global plastic pollution by 2025. To meet this goal, the first phase of the project (2018-2020) will provide “proof of concept” for the GPAP and its impact. It will do this through supporting by 2020 at least three major national/regional public-private action plans/collaborations with associated projects to tackle plastic pollution by 2025 in three hotspots around the world (Indonesia, Vietnam and Ghana).
GPAP, hosted at the World Economic Forum (WEF), is a neutral platform responsible for coordinating and facilitating the public-private partnerships and that the extended secretariat includes three regional coordinators, based locally, in Ghana, Indonesia and Vietnam. The Government of Indonesia has made significant step by committing to reduce plastics pollution to the ocean by 70% by 2025. GPAP is supporting Indonesia to reduce plastic pollution to the ocean through National Plastic Action Partnership (NPAP). The partnership brings together government, private sectors and civil society organizations to contribute in achieving national ocean plastic reduction target.
The secretariat of Indonesia’s National Plastic Action Partnership (NPAP), hosted at the World Resources Institute (WR) Indonesia, is looking for a Manager to drive the partnership and support the implementation of NPAP’s Action Roadmap, launched in March 2020 as a step-by-step guide to achieve Indonesia’s national target to reduce plastic pollution by 70% by 2025. This position will work with the growing Indonesia NPAP Secretariat at the WRI Indonesia Country and coordinate closely with GPAP team.
