Indonesia: Advancing Social Protection for Poverty and Inequality Reduction

Sovereign (Public) Project | 54378-001 Status: Proposed

Anchored in MOSA's RENSTRA 2020-2024, the results-based lending (RBL) program scope focuses on results that strengthen flagship social assistance programs and provides livelihood opportunities for beneficiaries. The broader government program includes the work program from all departments in Ministry of Social Affairs (MOSA), while the RBL program focuses mostly on the departments working on PKH and Sembako, as well as the Planning Bureau which has an oversight role. The program will address core and persistent challenges in coverage, targeting, and fragmentation, while addressing newer reform agendas and responding to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. This includes innovative ideas such as shock responsive social protection, which aims at improving the capacity of the program and its beneficiaries to respond effectively to shocks, including climate and disaster-related shocks.

Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Government of Indonesia aims to reach high-income status and reduce extreme poverty to "nearly zero" 2045. This vision is formulated within the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) for 2020-2024. Accordingly, the Ministry of Social Affairs (MOSA) strategic plan (RENSTRA) for 2020-2024 aims to improve social welfare and service quality for the poor and vulnerable. This is aligned with the concept of comprehensive and universal social protection, which mandates equitable access to social protection for all in need of protection against poverty and risks to livelihood and well-being. Social assistance support has become acutely important since the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, both because the targets have become harder to reach and the urgency with which support is required to assist marginalized populations from health, social, and economic perspectives.
