ADB-Indonesia Partnership Strategy

Indonesia has made tremendous social, economic, and political achievements in its 7 decades of independence. The country has a stable democracy, and the economy has grown fivefold since the mid-1980s. The country partnership strategy (CPS), 2016-2019 for Indonesia will help build on that progress by working toward inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth through improved infrastructure services, better public sector governance and management, and enhanced education and skills.

Country operations business plan, 2017-2019 for Indonesia includes a mix of project loans, policy-based lending for government-led policy reforms, results-based lending operations to support major infrastructure programs, and direct sovereign lending to state-owned enterprises with a government guarantee.

ADB will increase infrastructure investments in support of the government’s ambitious targets. Its support in energy infrastructure will boost the reliability and efficiency of the national electricity grid and promote cleaner energy sources, such as geothermal and natural gas. To improve rural incomes, support will focus on irrigation, water supply, and high-value crops. In cities, the urban poor will benefit from upgrades to sewerage and wastewater management.

ADB will support reforms to improve public expenditures, delivery of services, and the business environment.

ADB support for human resource development will be focused primarily on improving education quality and skills development through policy reform, and better sector management. 

The Public Communications Policy (PCP) recognizes that transparency and accountability are essential to development effectiveness. It establishes the disclosure requirements for documents and information ADB produces or requires to be produced.

The Accountability Mechanism provides a forum where people adversely affected by ADB-assisted projects can voice and seek solutions to their problems and report alleged noncompliance of ADB's operational policies and procedures.
