I. BACKGROUND
 
The commitment demonstrated by the Indonesian Government to the implementation of CEDAW and Beijing Platform for Action is implemented by the issuance of Presidential Instruction No 9/2000 on Gender Mainstreaming in National Development. Since then, gender mainstreaming has been further strengthened in the National Long Term Development Planning (RPJPN) 2005-2025, which breaks down into the National Middle Term Development Planning (RPJMN) 2004-2009, 2010-2014, and 2015-2019 in which gender equality is mentioned as the goal in the Indonesian development programme.    
The commitment is further strengthened in the policy framework through the issuance of the Ministry of Finance Regulation PMK No 119/2009 concerning Guideline of Submission and Review of Annual Ministries Work Plan and Budget. The policy has laid out the foundation of incorporating gender analysis into the national planning of the budgeting system in the seven piloted ministries. The seven piloted ministries consist of three coordinating ministries, namely; Ministry of National Planning, Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, Ministry of Finance. The other four ministries are; Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Public Works. Priority areas for the sectoral piloted ministries are given to the programmes and activities on service delivery and for the driver ministries, the priority is given to strengthen the structure.
After two years of implementation, in 2011 the government of Indonesia conducted evaluation of the GRPB piloted both in the national and sub-national level. The result of the evaluation is positive and it was recommended with further continuation of Gender Responsive Planning and Budgeting (GRPB) into other ministries and state institutions. The evaluation also found that the GRPB works well through the engagement of gender focal points in each ministries. In the sub-national level, GRPB has been implemented since 2010 in four provinces, namely; Banten, Yogyakarta, Central Java, and East Java. It is found that commitment of the Governor and the driver's institution from the respected province contributed significantly to the success of GRPB implementation in the provincial level. 
Strengthening and articulating gender mainstreaming into national development plan in 2012, the four coordinating ministries of gender mainstreaming; Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, Ministry of National Development Plan, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Home Affairs, endorsed the National Strategy of Gender Responsive Planning and Budgeting (Perencanaan dan Penganggaran Responsive Gender/PPRG) covering the period 2012-2014 including the guideline to execute GRPB in the ministerial level/ state institutions and local government.  The objective of the National Strategy of GRPB is to integrate gender into government development cycles by; 1). Institutionalizing commitment of ministries /state institutions in the national and sub-national level. 2). Providing systematic coordination among drivers and technical agencies, 3). Strengthening ministries/state institutions in formulating gender responsive planning and budgeting, and implementation of GRPB in the national and sub-national level.
Concerning the National Strategy of GRPB 2012-2014, completed in 2014, the Ministry of Development Planning is now evaluating its implementation to take the lessons learnt and best practices. The result of the evaluation will be used as a foundation to develop the National Strategy of GRPB covering the year 2017-2020.
