Indonesia has emerged as a regional democratic leader and is globally recognized for its diversity and pluralism. However, democratic governance has yet to produce tangible benefits for many Indonesians.
USAID partners with Indonesian communities, government and civil-society organizations to meet these challenges.
We provide assistance in five areas:
- Bolstering the capacity of government institutions to prevent, expose and punish corruption and other abuses of power; and strengthening the capacity of the media, NGO and citizens “watchdog” groups;
- Assisting the Indonesian Supreme Court and Attorney General’s Office reforms in developing a more accountable and effective justice system; supporting NGOs, think tanks and professional groups that monitor and advocate for justice sector reform; and strengthening future prospects for the rule of law through policy-oriented legal research and legal education;
- Assisting Indonesia’s national and local governments, local councils and civil society to improve incentives for better local government performance and adopt innovative service delivery approaches; and supporting local government efforts to increase access to safe drinking water and adequate sanitation;
- Improving the policy-making capability of Indonesian legislative bodies, civil society organizations, universities and think tanks; and strengthening connections between representative institutions and Indonesian citizens; and
- Supporting Indonesian civil society organizations and government institutions in promoting and protecting citizen’s rights; and promoting conflict-sensitive approaches to development, technical capacity building, livelihood development and civil society.
