Indonesia National Program for Community Empowerment (PNPM) Support Facility: Progress Report 2014
Summary of publication
Seven years into implementation, PNPM reached full maturity with its national coverage and arrived at a critical juncture with the approval of the Village Law in January 2014. The Government of Indonesia has been largely successful in positively impacting the lives of millions of people across the Indonesian archipelago by strengthening community institutions and their capacity to deliver cost-effective infrastructure and by enhancing their access to social services and economic opportunities. The promulgation of the new Village Law was also a strong validation of the success of PNPM, as it adopts a number of approaches that have been developed through PNPM and furthermore mainstreams the approach into regular government development initiatives.
