Community Initiatives Unit Programm Outcome Evaluation
Commissioning Unit: Indonesia
Evaluation Plan: 2006-2010
Evaluation Type: Outcome
Completion Date: 01/2006
Unit Responsible for providing Management Response: Indonesia
Documents Related to overall Management Response:
 
1. Recommendation: Indonesia has already achieved the MDG target on US$ 1 a-day poverty, but it is regressing in the variables on national poverty line and malnutrition (hunger). Therefore, UNDP could assist the government for the achievement of the MDG targets in these variables
Management Response: [Added: 2008/01/21]

It is too soon to conclude as such, as variables of poverty are diverse and multi-dimensions - government may have a different view on the achievement of this target. UNDP could support the effort in the two variables mentioned but the role will be very limited as the institution is no equipped with such expertise. However, UNDP could collaborate with government to launch program that could support the effort for changes in these variables. In addition collaboration with other UN agencies to address hunger and malnutrion may be more strategic to create long lasting impact and significant change in this variable.

Key Actions:

Key Action Responsible DueDate Status Comments Documents
In Indonesia, Gini coefficient has slightly increased from 31 percent in 2000 to 32 percent in 2005. This is a cause of concern. UNDP, therefore, could support the government to bring down the Gini coefficient through pro-poor policy reform.
[Added: 2008/01/21]
CO, MSU 2008/01 Completed This has been a constant challenge for not only UNDP but also other development agencies in Indonesia. The pro-poor policy reform has been promoted for years in the country but in reality it is difficult to put them into practice - there is a significant gap in capacity of bureaucracy to take into account the poverty analysis into a macro-economic policy hence making the pro-poor growth as rhetoric instead of strategic approach for poverty reduction. While governance reform is not a niche of UNDP program there has been an effort to promote the pro-poor policy making through various projects under MDG support unit.
