UNDP Indonesia’s mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.
The Provincial Governance Support Program (PGSP) supported by UNDP and implemented by the government of Indonesia, has been developed to assist the government of Indonesia to address some of the key challenges associated with decentralization.
In 1999, through path-breaking legislations, Indonesia commenced radical decentralization. This initiative has led to new powers for regions and to the special autonomy agreements for Papua and Aceh. The change has also created confusion over overlapping roles and responsibilities between provinces and districts as well as concerns over the scale of proliferation of new provinces and districts. Decentralization has not led to an effective transfer of power and resources from the central government to local governments in order to better serve the communities and citizens, improve welfare, and better generate the economy. Instead, some allege, power is captured by local elites.
