Indonesia: Poverty Reduction and Millennium Development Goals Acceleration Program
The Program was to provide the resources, the flexibility, and an improved implementation framework to achieve the government’s Millennium Development Goals (MDG) targets more quickly. The program supported the achievement of the MDG targets 1 to 6 on poverty reduction, heath, education, and gender equality. The National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) was the executing agency and the implementing agencies were the Ministry of Health (MOH), the Ministry of National Education (MONE), and the Ministry of Religious Affairs (MORA). The program was designed as a program cluster of three successive subprograms, each with its own loan. This arrangement provided the responsible institutions with time to adopt an extensive range of indicators and modify them if necessary. This also allowed time for drafting the enabling rules of the new laws and for capacity building to implement the extensive monitoring system
