Environmental Governance

$10 million, 2017-2022

The 2015 forest and land fires in Indonesia caused an economic loss of approximately USD16 billion (approximately $20 billion) and discharged over one billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. Forest and land fires are an annual crisis in Indonesia and a significant contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. To support Indonesia's efforts to prevent the recurrence of fires and to reduce emissions, we initiated an environmental governance program as part of Australia's Indo-Pacific Land Action Package in 2017. The Indonesia Australia Partnership for Environmental Governance Program included four activities to respond to Indonesia’s interest in addressing forest fires and climate change.

Water and Sanitation for Low Income Communities Project (PAMSIMAS)

$124 million, 2008-2022

PAMSIMAS was the Indonesian Government's national program for rural water supply and sanitation. The program aimed to increase the number of under-served rural, peri-urban and urban slum populations accessing sustainable water supply, sanitation and basic infrastructure services. Through PAMSIMAS we worked with communities to plan, finance, manage and maintain their water supply and sanitation systems and improve hygiene behaviour.

Cumulatively, our joint efforts with the Indonesian Government had enabled about 24.7 million people (exceeding the target of 22.1 million people) to access improved water facilities (such as piped water into homes and public taps), and 16.4 million people (exceeding the target of 14.9 million people) to access improved sanitation facilities (such as flush toilets or improved pit latrines). PAMSIMAS was co-financed by Australia and the World Bank until December 2022 and continues to be delivered by the Indonesian Ministry of Public Works and Housing wholly funded by the national budget.

Australia is now supporting the design of the follow-on program (called PAMSIMAS Next Gen) that will be funded by the national budget.

World Bank Trust Fund – Improving Dimensions of Teaching, Education Management, and Learning Environment (ID-TEMAN)

$9 million, 2016-2020

Between 2016-2020, Australia partnered with the World Bank through ID-TEMAN Trust Fund to support Indonesia to reach its education potential by improving teaching and learning through better policy development and implementation. Building on research and analytical work conducted by the World Bank with the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture over the last decade, the trust fund’s targeted technical assistance mainly worked in two key areas: effective teaching and learning processes, with a focus on teacher competencies; and improving the delivery of education for all, including school management, financial transfers and teacher deployment.

The ID-TEMAN program was dedicated to identifying key areas for system reform. Program activities aimed to strengthen the knowledge base of the Ministry of Education and Culture (now Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology), the former Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education, the Ministry of Religious Affairs, and support the Government to improve education outcomes in line with Indonesia's Medium-Term Development Plan targets in education service delivery.

In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, ID-TEMAN’s deliverables have served as a key reference for government officials and stakeholders, as well as contributed key inputs to the World Bank’s analytic activities and operations related to COVID-19. For example, the two ID-TEMAN’s forthcoming Education Flagship report (titled The Promise of Education in Indonesia) and the Service Delivery Indicator (SDI) & Madrasah Management Study Survey report both provided a foundational basis to the World Bank’s Estimates of COVID-19 Impacts on Learning and Earning in Indonesia: How to Turn the Tide

Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (MAMPU)

$112.3 million, 2012-2020

MAMPU worked to empower women and improve gender equality in Indonesia through developing women's collective capacity and helping them to influence decision-making at multiple levels – from the village to national parliament.

At the heart of our approach were selected Indonesian civil society organisations (CSOs) that championed women's issues – the MAMPU partners. Through MAMPU we directly and indirectly supported over 100 local organisations at national and sub-national levels, working in almost 1,000 villages across 27 of Indonesia's 34 provinces. MAMPU supported these partners to act more collectively and with allies in government and parliament to influence policy changes to improve women's lives.

MAMPU partners have established more than 3,000 local community groups, with a total membership of more than 70,000 women. Through these groups, women were supported to express their views, convey their priorities publicly, and influence the allocation of state resources for wider benefit, including access to essential services. This network played a pivotal role in shaping government reforms to the benefit of women and girls.

In response to COVID-19 MAMPU worked with government and civil society partners to ensure poor and vulnerable women could access new social assistance measures and sexual and reproductive healthcare; supported alternative livelihoods for informal workers who had lost their jobs; and addressed the increased risk of violence against women because of the pandemic.

Support to Marginalised Groups (Peduli)

$39.4 million, 2014-2021

Peduli was an Australian-Indonesian Government partnership managed by the Asia Foundation (TAF) with broad direction and engagement from the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture (Kemenko PMK). The Program was implemented through a network of 63 Indonesian civil society organisations in 66 districts across 21 provinces.

Through Peduli we promoted social inclusion to reduce poverty among marginalised people in Indonesia. This included efforts to increase access to public services and social assistance, increase social acceptance, protect human rights and improve government policies on social inclusion. The program focused on six of Indonesia's most marginalised groups: vulnerable children and youth; remote indigenous communities reliant on natural resources; religious minorities; victims of human rights violations; male-to-female transgender (waria); and people with disabilities.

Over the years, Peduli assisted over 85,000 beneficiaries, and strengthened inclusive government through dialogue and policy reforms. The program promoted broader public awareness through specific and targeted media to help build a more positive profile of these marginalised groups that traditionally experience negative stereotyping from the mainstream media and public.

Peduli worked with civil society organisations to support marginalised groups impacted by COVID-19, including through provision of personal protective equipment (PPE), food supplies and public health messaging. Peduli also worked with the Ministry of Villages to promote new inclusive village guidance across Indonesia, which helped to ensure marginalised groups were actively considered in village-level responses to COVID-19.

We supported the province and its districts to increase the proportion of births in adequate health facilities, make maternal and newborn health higher priorities in annual district budgets and improve the management of health clinics' operational budgets and health and birth insurance.

The program also helped to build community awareness of the services available at health facilities. Key achievements included a 50 per cent drop in maternal deaths in NTT in 2014 compared to 2009. For Indonesia's 32 other provinces (not supported by the program), the mean percentage change was negligible over the same time period. The proportion of births in a facility in the 14 supported districts increased steadily from 42 per cent in 2009 to 73 per cent in 2014.

While this program has ended, the Government of Indonesia and other partners will carry forward much of the work we have done in this area.

Australia Indonesia Partnership for Rural Economic Development Program (AIP-Rural)

$112 million, 2010-2019

AIP-Rural promoted inclusive economic growth in five provinces in eastern Indonesia, by influencing how agricultural markets work for the poor. The program helped reduce poverty, address constraints to rural income growth and improve agricultural productivity. We facilitated private sector-led investments in better agricultural practices and women's economic empowerment. By December 2018, AIP-Rural had increased incomes of more than 336,000 smallholder farming households by 256 per cent. The total additional income for smallholder households is equal to $186 million. It facilitated 180 public and private sector partnerships, leveraging co-investments of $94.2 million. The benefits of this program to farmers and the business community is shown by their willingness to co-invest. Importantly, 42 per cent of the beneficiaries of AIP-Rural were women, making it an important investment for increasing the incomes of women and improving gender equality. AIP-Rural concluded in December 2018 and PRISMA2 (Phase 2 of operations) commenced on 1 January 2019.

Australia Indonesia Partnership in Disaster Risk Management

$17.8 million, 2015-2018

This program supported the Indonesian Government to make better informed decisions about disaster risk management including by having the right policies, awareness and training, and improving hazard and exposure mapping.

It was comprised of two key projects. First, DMCreate (Disaster Management Capacity Development and Community Resilience) worked in partnership with civil society organisations and UN agencies to improve preparedness through training, provision of technical experts, development of key national and provincial documents, and mainstreaming disaster risk management into village planning.

Second, DMInnovation (Disaster Management Innovation), which was implemented by Geoscience Australia and focused on hazard and exposure mapping and developing tools (like InaSAFE and OpenStreetMap) to support decision making. Over 12.4 million buildings and 404,000 km of road have now been mapped in OpenStreetMap, which helps Indonesia make informed decisions about underlying hazards.

Poverty Reduction Support Facility

$122 million, 2010-2015

The Poverty Reduction Support Facility (PRSF) supported the Indonesian Vice President's National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction. PRSF's objectives were to help enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of existing social protection programs, and to help Indonesia advance its agenda for developing a comprehensive social protection framework. The PRSF did this by:

  • generating knowledge to inform social assistance policies, define policy options and translate policy choices into operational programs
  • providing technical assistance; and
  • providing high-quality monitoring and evaluation.

Australian support through the PRSF helped develop and implement a unified database that covers 97 million individuals, constituting the poorest 40 per cent of Indonesia's population. This database has assisted Indonesia's largest social assistance programs to better reach and support the poorest 25 per cent of Indonesia's population. Australia's support also helped to design a compensation package that allowed Indonesia to reform its fuel subsidies.

Following the success of PRSF, Australia has continued with a second phase of support to strengthen the Indonesian Government's social protection systems. The MAHKOTA (Towards a Strong and Prosperous Indonesian Society) program will run from 2015-2019 and will continue to support the Indonesian Government to improve the quality and effectiveness of its poverty reduction programs.
