MAHKOTA - Senior Economist

The Government of Australia (GoA), through the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade (DFAT), is a partner with the National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction (TNP2K) under the office of the Vice President of the Government of Indonesia.  TNP2K is a policy think tank to improve the quality and effectiveness of Indonesia's poverty reduction programs that reach millions of poor Indonesians.  The next phase of social protection support from November 2015 through to November 2019 is MAHKOTA Indonesia - Menuju Masyarakat Indonesia Yang Kokoh Sejahtera (Towards a Strong and Prosperous Indonesian Society). It will continue to provide support to help Indonesia better reach and benefit the poorest, as well as address key binding constraints to growth, competitiveness and rising inequality through ongoing labour market and social protection reforms.
 
As Managing Contractor of MAHKOTA Program, Cardno is urgently looking for Senior Economist to be part of the research team. TNP2K is committed to take on evidence-based poverty reduction and social assistance policies. This duty is achieved through research and policy analysis that encourage discussion and exchange of ideas on poverty, social protection and development issues in Indonesia. 
 
Some key achievements that can be attributed to TNP2K's evidence-based policy influencing and making are: 1) Increased political will for social assistance with a 60% increase in the budget allocation for social assistance in the 2013 budget (increased to USD 57 billion), 2) Expanded access of social assistance programs to the poor with an increased number of beneficiaries and a rapid and efficient rollout of a major unconditional cash transfer program, 3) Development of a common poverty-based targeting methodology through the adoption of the Unified Database by all major social assistance programs and its increased adoption by local governments, 4) The introduction of the first integrated social assistance card in Indonesia, designed by TNP2K and implemented as part of a comprehensive package to enhance the social assistance programs to mitigate the impact of the fuel subsidy reforms on the poor and vulnerable.
