Indonesia: Building Inclusive Social Assistance

Sovereign (Public) Project | 51313-001 Status: Active

Indonesia's national medium-term development plan for 2015 2019 aims to establish a social protection system for all citizens.1 This knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the expansion of Indonesia's conditional cash transfer (CCT) program, the Family Hope Program (PKH). The program pays benefits to mothers and aims to reduce poverty and inequality through increased access to, and consumption of basic services. The Ministry of Social Affairs (MOSA) has enrolled four million new households in 2018, bringing the total beneficiary households to 10 million, but its institutional capacity to scale up and promote PKH is limited. The TA will (i) build PKH staff capacity to implement PKH and its family development sessions (FDSs); (ii) increase inclusiveness by supporting the PKH expansion to remote areas and vulnerable groups (elderly and people with disabilities); and (iii) strengthen the PKH staff's analytical, communications, and advocacy skills to bolster stakeholder support.

Description Indonesia's national medium-term development plan for 2015 2019 aims to establish a social protection system for all citizens.1 This knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will support the expansion of Indonesia's conditional cash transfer (CCT) program, the Family Hope Program (PKH). The program pays benefits to mothers and aims to reduce poverty and inequality through increased access to, and consumption of basic services. The Ministry of Social Affairs (MOSA) has enrolled four million new households in 2018, bringing the total beneficiary households to 10 million, but its institutional capacity to scale up and promote PKH is limited. The TA will (i) build PKH staff capacity to implement PKH and its family development sessions (FDSs); (ii) increase inclusiveness by supporting the PKH expansion to remote areas and vulnerable groups (elderly and people with disabilities); and (iii) strengthen the PKH staff's analytical, communications, and advocacy skills to bolster stakeholder support. The TA directly supports the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) Strategy 2030 through the operational priority of ensuring social protection for those in need. It is closely aligned with the country partnership strategy, 2016 2019, and included in the country operations business plan, 2018 2020 of the ADB for Indonesia.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Reaching the poor and the vulnerable in remote and disadvantaged regions is difficult. The PKH covers remote and underserved provinces under PKH Akses, which is initially offered in Papua and West Papua provinces.13 The PKH faces policy and operational challenges in these locations that require business process modifications. It covers 45,000 households, one-tenth of the potential target of 450,000. Shortfalls highlighted by MOSA and confirmed by the joint monitoring of MOSA, and the National Development Planning Agency include (i) lack of health and education services to ensure compliance with PKH conditions; (ii) lack of automated teller machines for payments; (iii) poor physical access, which highlights the need for better logistical and administrative requirements for implementers; and (iv) higher levels of vulnerability among beneficiaries. Other provinces not included in the Akses program also suffer from the same geographic isolation and poor basic services. PKH also extended its coverage to include the elderly under the Akses program. However, for beneficiaries in isolated locations and the elderly, compliance protocols required by the general PKH program and operations need to be more flexible for PKH Akses.
