Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 1. UNDP Indonesia should support Indonesia?s transition to middle-income country status by relying more on its relative advantages in networking and innovative approaches to development than on managing projects requiring big inputs of staff and equipment. UNDP Indonesia should set priorities for its resource mobilization for the next three to five years and discuss them with potential sources of funding with a view to drawing up a medium-term plan for raising and deploying financial resources.
2 2. In order to strengthen its strategic focus and use of reducing resources, UNDP Indonesia?s geographical focus should be continued.
3 3. UNDP Indonesia should review its partnership strategy to engage more actively with the private sector and local government, and to strengthen the advocacy role of its CSO partners.
4 4. UNDP Indonesia should actively engage major Indonesian stakeholders?including GoI agencies, CSOs and private-sector actors?in a national discussion of policies and measures against climate change
5 5. UNDP Indonesia should improve sustainability of results by working with BAPPENAS, implementing partners and beneficiaries to develop realistic exit strategies at the time of planning. With a wider application of a programme approach to planning UNDP interventions, the changing roles among the partners during the life of an intervention will be better managed through integration in the host administration from the very outset
6 6. UNDP Indonesia should continue to strengthen the results orientation of its programme by further improving the outcome orientation of monitoring and reporting, and making the evaluation plan more strategic based on management and strategic information
7 7. UNDP Indonesia should also review the rules and routines for project management in order to enhance management efficiency of its programme.
8 8. To speed up implementation of the Jakarta Commitment principles, procurement training and certification should be initiated quickly and without prejudice to the common road map laid down by GoI in the Aid for Development Effectiveness Project.

Management Response: [Added: 2011/01/12] [Last Updated: 2011/01/24]

UNDP-Indonesia will increase focus on developing its capacity to provide policy advisory services informed through evidence based field level projects and innovative approaches. Priorities of the next programme will be defined in line with this position and direction and mutually agreed with partners to enhance ownership and facilitate resource mobilization. This will also require analysis and subsequent steps to realign office structures and staff capacities to better serve the increased focus on policy level work.

8. Recommendation: 8. To speed up implementation of the Jakarta Commitment principles, procurement training and certification should be initiated quickly and without prejudice to the common road map laid down by GoI in the Aid for Development Effectiveness Project.
Management Response: [Added: 2011/01/12]

The main obstacle for full government implementation is not related to individual capacity but rather to national regulatory problems, and therefore the training/certification will not be the focus of the response. Rather, UNDP will address this issue through the aid-effectiveness working groups on procurement under the Jakarta Commitment by supporting the revision of national procurement guidelines while ensuring that clearer guidance on the applicability of national procurement regulations is provided in the PMIG.
