MAHKOTA - Partnership Specialist (TNP2K)

About the program
The Government of Indonesia is committed to accelerating the pace of poverty reduction and the President of Indonesia has declared that poverty reduction is among the highest development priorities of his administration. This commitment is reflected in Indonesia's national medium
term development plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional, RPJMN, 20152019), with a target to reduce the poverty rate from 11% in 2014 to 78% by 2019. Indonesia's achievements to reduce poverty have been significant: between 1999 and 2014, the poverty rate reduced from 23.4% to 11.0%. However, almost 30 million Indonesians continue to live below the poverty line, and around 99 million are either living in or vulnerable to falling back into poverty. Furthermore, inequality has risen significantly since the late 1990s which can threaten both economic growth and stability. Key policies for tackling poverty and inequality are investment in social protection and widening access to decent work. There is strong international evidence that well-designed social protection can enable people to access the labour market and participate in income generating activities, while also helping generate higher economic growth.

In a bid to intensify poverty reduction efforts, the Government of Indonesia has elevated the overall oversight and coordination of poverty and social protection programs to be under the VicePresident's Office. Through Presidential Regulation No. 15/2010, the National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction (Tim Nasional Percepatan Penanggulangan Kemiskinan, TNP2K) was founded and given the mandate to carry out this oversight and coordination role. TNP2K plays a key role in defining policies for poverty reduction and social protection by:
  •         Improving program targeting using a common method and household list for all social protection programs;
  •         Improving the performance of poverty reduction programs through reforms in program design;
  •         Undertaking monitoring and impact evaluation of social protection programs; and
  •         Support line ministries in maintaining quality implementation.
The Government of Australia is supporting the Government of Indonesia under a program called MAHKOTA - Menuju Masyarakat Indonesia Yang Kokoh Sejahtera (Towards a Strong and Prosperous Indonesian Society).  MAHKOTA is a flexible facility managed by Cardno that is able to respond to Government of Indonesia priorities, provide top Indonesian and international expertise, and support the Government of Indonesia with innovating policy.  MAHKOTA's goal is "a comprehensive and equitable social protection system for the whole of Indonesia by 2025."
