The Regional Knowledge Centre of Marine Plastic Debris was established in October 2019, as part of the Economic Research Institute for ASEAN and East Asia (ERIA). The Regional Knowledge Centre serves as an information platform on marine plastic pollution in ASEAN+3 countries, aiming at (1) supporting research and data collection that contributes to science-based policy formulation, (2) gathering and disseminating scientific knowledge to support solution-orientated initiatives and build public awareness, (3) facilitating national and regional capacity-building activities, (4) developing strong collaborative networks and regional partnerships, and (5) promoting innovations from the private sector. The Regional Knowledge Centre has its office in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Framework and work structure

The Regional Knowledge Centre has different workstreams, such as research and data collection, policy advocacy, private sector engagement, and awareness raising to share a few. One of the components for which the Regional Knowledge Centre would like to further multiply and strengthen its activities from 2024 onward is capacity building in the ASEAN region. In fact, capacity building is considered as one of the missing links for the ASEAN region to advance science-driven policymaking further.

The Capacity Building Expert is required to work under the direction of the Regional Knowledge Centre’s Director while receiving technical advice from the Senior Research Fellow, as well as in close collaboration with the Program Manager.

Job descriptions

Under the instructions and supervision of the Regional Knowledge Centre’s Director, the Capacity Building Expert plans, develops, and implements capacity-building activities to enhance the roles and positioning of the Regional Knowledge Centre in the region.

The main duties and responsibilities include:

Capacity building needs assessment and prioritization

  • Conduct scoping exercises and needs assessments to understand the current gaps of capacity building in the ASEAN region to prevent (marine) plastic pollution. Methods such as desk review, direct interviews with key players, focus group discussions or surveys will be used to back this up.
  • Identify and consolidate relevant stakeholders/target groups list for whom different capacity building trainings are needed and rank them according to the degree of priority for the region.
  • Cross-reference the accumulated knowledge and research outputs within the Regional Knowledge Centre and conceive the most optimal and cost-effective capacity-building training courses, catered toward specific target groups.
  • Continuously adjust with new capacity-building needs which may arise in accordance with the regional and global priorities, as well as strategic programmatic needs of the Regional Knowledge Centre or ERIA.
  • Participate in related meetings, workshops, business travels, and field visits when required.
  • Supervise and collaborate with the Capacity Building Research Associate for data collection, desk reviews, meeting setup, contacts list development, and other appropriate tasks.

Capacity building training material development

  • Based on the knowledge accumulated within the Regional Knowledge Center, develop the most optimal capacity-building training material/modules, where appropriate in collaboration with the individual or institutional partner(s). This accumulated knowledge can be (1) research report, outcomes, tools of past or ongoing research projects, (2) expertise and knowledge from expert(s) within the Regional Knowledge Centre, or ERIA, or more widely from the partner network, or (3) newly explored by the capacity building expert in response to the strong need from the ASEAN region.
  • Training courses and training materials need to be developed in consultation with and under the close supervision of the Director and the Senior Research Fellow to ensure a high impact and maximum effect for the region.
  • If needed, identify expert consultants, and partner institutions and develop necessary TOR to delegate training material development tasks.
  • Supervise and collaborate with the Capacity Building Research Associate for the training materials development activities.

Network development and outreach

  • Understand the existing stakeholders, relevant institutions, national and regional partners and the roles they play in order to leverage their input for the benefit of the Regional Knowledge Centre.
  • Create and continuously update a partner directory, especially of target groups to engage with them in outreach activities (emails, online meetings, or in-person visit).
  • Maintain good relationships with key stakeholders and encourage their active participation and involvement in capacity-building efforts.
  • Reach out to other experts/lecturers with specific knowledge and expertise, and engage them for the entirely/a portion of the training course, if needed.
  • Keep an eye on regional training programs, to avoid duplication of efforts but also to ensure good coordination and synergy where needed. Consider joint training programs or back-to-back events where appropriate.
  • Supervise and collaborate with the Capacity Building Research Associate to develop the directory and set up meetings (online or in person) to take appointments.

Implementation of the training sessions in the ASEAN

  • Prepare and execute the capacity building trainings in the ASEAN region under different formats: (1) 100% online, (2) hybrid format, (3) attendees gathering in Jakarta (ERIA office), (4) attendees gathering in one ASEAN country, or (5) visiting different ASEAN countries (roadshow) where attendees are located (instead of gathering them in one city).
  • Be in charge not only of the substance of the training courses (concept note, training material, invitation lists, agenda), but also a good part of the logistics (target city identification, suitable location, travel plan).
  • Supervise and collaborate with the Capacity Building Research Associate to prepare the upcoming training course by ensuring substantial, administrative and logistical aspects of the implementation.

Reporting, follow-up, and communication

  • During and after the training, conduct feedback surveys among the participants to ensure that they have improved their capacity and the understanding of the subject matter. The effectiveness of the training course should be reported to the Director and the Senior Research Fellow.
  • Taking into consideration the feedback from the training course, further improve the on-going capacity building training, or improve the material/training modules for the next cycle.
  • Take photos of the trainings scene (if appropriate) and draft an online summary article to share the objectives and results on the Regional Knowledge Centre’s website.
  • Follow up with the trainees and ensure their understanding, integration and the utilization of the knowledge gained.
  • Document lessons learned and/or success stories from capacity building activities, collaborate with the Communication Officer and the Knowledge Management Associate to create key messages/online content for wider dissemination.
