Description

This country study provides updated information and data on social protection arrangements, legislation, and institutions and calculates the social protection index (SPI) for Indonesia in view of the revised SPI methodology. The revised SPI methodology also provides scope to measure the gender responsiveness of programs, and poverty targeting of programs.

The Indonesia country report included in this document presents the results of the research on social protection programs and policies in Indonesia from all related ministries, particularly the Ministry of Social Welfare; and, summarizes quantitative information on these activities to enable the formulation of a national social protection index.
