Based on the review of the Project implementation, interviews and documentation analysis, the Evaluation revealed that the five criteria of assessment were duly met. Clearly, the Partnership Initiative for Institutional Development – South-South Triangular Cooperation (PIID-SSTC) was relevant to the needs of the Government of Indonesia and its stakeholders. It was relevant, as Indonesia is becoming a regional economic powerhouse that could potentially build its development cooperation and is ready to crystalize its SSTC programme based on the PIID-SSTC Project piloting in the cross-border region between Indonesia and Timor Leste.

1. The PIID-SSTC Project very much overlaps with the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDF) and the Country Programme Development, which were developed between UNDP and the member country, in this case Indonesia. On effectiveness, economic datasets deriving from the filed surveys indicated that the PIID-SSTC was executed effectively and smoothly, targeting the cross-border region that gave benefits to the local communities in both Indonesia and Timor Leste. The positive sentiments from the local farmers, from both Napan and Oesilo, provided evidence for this effective strategy.

2. The PIID-SSTC did not waste any resources to accomplish the Project objectives, nor did the Project team over-extended its own capacities. The PIID-SSTC Team carried out all the assigned tasks and conducted due diligence where necessary to pre-empt any potential mishaps. Despite this positive finding, an oversight in the transference of equipment to the local community in Oesilo did occur, which was largely due to the near absence of monitoring from the side of the RAEOA-ZEESM after the official handover.

3. The sustainability of the PIID-SSTC was also tested by way of questioning informants on their hopes and desires for the future of Indonesia’s SSTC. From the side of the Indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, positive sentiments abound when it came to the future collaboration with UNDP on SSTC. Furthermore, the PIID-SSTC also made a good impression on the Government of RAEOA-ZEESM, which clearly paved the way for further collaboration and deeper engagement, involving SSTC and even other areas such as climate change, renewable energy and others.

4. The impact of the PIID-SSTC can be felt across the board. The main and direct beneficiary of the Project, which is the MoFA, distinctly appreciated the UNDP efforts in PIID-SSTC. Through in-depth interviews with its officials in Jakarta and elsewhere, many of them expressed their delight at how UNDP could help bolster MoFA’s role in bringing forward the SSTC and at the same time provide the strong legal bases and direction with respect to the Regional Partnership Strategies that were developed through this Project. The PIID-SSCT’s impact was also felt among the local farmers in both Napan and Oesilo, who graciously thanked the Project Team for their involvement in the training programmes. For some time, these training had increased their income and livelihood, prior to the closing of the border regions due to the Covid19 pandemic.
