Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation:

Integrating and including the P/CVE issue in UNDP strategic plan documents, such as, CPD Output/Outcome, UNPDF document with clear indicators of results and achievements in each.

Management Response: [Added: 2019/09/19]

During the formulation process of the current CPD which took place in 2014, PVE issue was not raised as an immediate and urgent issue to be addressed by UNDP, hence there was no explicit statements about violent extremism in UNDP core documents such as CPD 2016-2020 and UNPDF 2016-2020, However, in the last three years, violent extremism has rapidly evolved in Indonesia and there was no accurate data available yet to show the comprehensive picture and magnitude of the problem. That is where UNDP found relevance to respond to the evolving dynamics. Therefore, this indicates UNDP has been responding flexibly to adjust the critical needs on the ground.
