(R)The overall goal of the Community and Local Government Support: Sector Development Program (CLGS:SDP) is to improve socio-economic well-being in Indonesia. The specific objectives are to (i) reduce poverty and restore economic activity; (ii) support the Government's ongoing decentralization efforts; (iii) operationalize decentralization by increasing the capacity of the districts to implement public works and enterprise support; and (iv) empower villages and civil society to participate more fully in local development. These objectives will be achieved through (i) support for policy, organizational and administrative reforms through a policy-based program loan that focuses on decentralization and devolution of responsibilities to the district levels; (ii) an investment loan that reduces poverty by employment creation through labour-based public works; and (iii) three TAs to prepare district administrative systems, district budgetary systems and the development of participatory planning, monitoring, and evaluation programs.

The investment component will provide funds for poverty alleviation through labor-based infrastructure development and improvement, following decentralized planning and implementation procedures, including enhanced community participation. The investments will be targeted at poorer districts that have been most severely affected by the crisis. The works financed under this component will consist of village projects and larger district level works. The funds will be provided by the Government to the eligible districts on a block grant basis.
