Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Indonesia faces a number of development challenges and the government is looking for new solutions to these problems, ways to innovate and ways to scale up their responses. They wish to learn from the experiences in the region and share their lessons. The public policy development process will change. The government seeks a more informed consultation process. They look to regionally experienced and trusted development partners such as ADB for support.

Providing support to public policy development and analysis of development constraints will come in two primary forms, that is, analysis of structural change which will require detailed analysis and consideration and ad-hoc advisory services. These ad-hoc advisory services are referred to by the government as Just in Time' knowledge as it cannot be planned and scheduled. Undertaking analysis and providing ADB's support as a knowledge bank is being requested by the government. How the information is disseminated turns it into knowledge. Indonesia's pace of change is speeding up and it is expected to accelerate. Indonesia requires quick and ready answers to complex issues. It requires them in forms that are easily received by key decision makers. It requires them from partners they trust and who can respond quickly. A mechanism to provide this support must have the flexibility to meet this dynamic environment while also providing the more traditional detailed analysis and reporting.
