KOMPAK Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Strategy 2018 – 2022

Summary of publication

KOMPAK (Governance for Growth) is a facility funded by the Government of Australia to support the Government of Indonesia in achieving its poverty reduction targets and addressing inequality. KOMPAK started in January 2015 with the first phase running until June 2018. DFAT approved the continuation phase for KOMPAK for the period of 2019 to 2022. Its current end date is 30 June 2022.

KOMPAK is committed to working at all levels of government to find solutions for the most important challenges faced in delivering basic services and promoting livelihoods for the people of Indonesia. KOMPAK's goal is to help the poor and vulnerable benefit from improved delivery of basic services and economic opportunities. To achieve this, we support initiatives that will improve the capabilities of the government – at the national, provincial, district, sub-district and village levels – to manage and deliver basic civil registration, health and education services and create an enabling environment for local economic development. Integral to this is strong development planning and coordination, effective and inclusive local governments, and performance-oriented and efficient public financial management systems.

At the core of KOMPAK's work is an explicit focus on women, the poor and marginalised as outlined in the program goal: poor and vulnerable Indonesians benefit from improved access to basic services and economic opportunities.

This document outlines how KOMPAK will ensure a focus on gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) and take tailored approaches within different contexts and conditions to push for transformative change for women, persons with disabilities and disadvantaged and marginalised groups. This is a living document, intended to be refined and improved as the team learns and the programs evolves.
