Indonesia - Strategy for a sustained reduction in poverty (English)

This report assesses trends in the level and the regional incidence of poverty as well as changes in income inequality. It examines the characteristics of the poor and outlines a general strategy for continuing poverty reduction in the 1990s. In addition, recent Government initiatives to reduce poverty are analyzed in the context of the proposed general strategic approach. Then, the report discusses in detail sectoral issues in designing and implementing antipoverty programs in three areas that are critical to the needs of the poor - agricultural programs, and human resource development in the social services and other basic services, such as water supply, sanitation and other basic infrastructure. Within these sectors, the report identifies those areas of most benefit to the poor and outlines appropriate policies and programs to shift a larger portion of resources to these areas. Finally, implementing the strategy outlined in this report will require changes in the Government's current institutional arrangements for identifying and implementing poverty programs. The report concludes with a discussion of institutional arrangements and responsibilities that could increase the efficiency of the Government's efforts. There is also a discussion of the role that community groups could play, in addition to Government institutions, in reaching and delivering services more effectively to the poor.
