Short Memo: LGAs providing inputs for Indonesia Policy Recommendation Paper
22/12/2011

Indonesia

On December 22, the Indonesian Local Government Associations conducted a meeting to review and provide inputs for the National Policy Recommendation Paper.

This meeting took place prior to the National Policy Dialogue which is planned to be conducted in February 2012. The following points have been raised:

  • To focus the issue of disaster management on environmental disaster management and environmental sustainability.
  • To speed up the endorsement of several national regulations e.g. National Regulation on waste management.
  • The National Government needs to distribute the information of BPs well to all regions in Indonesia.
  • The discussion emphasized on the complexity of planning, monitoring, and evaluation process at the local level which caused late budget transfer from the central level. Hence there is a need of the local government to have a full financial autonomy.

Another outcome of the meeting is that the LGAs committed to support the BP replication documentation, in terms of financing and distributing the BP publication - Bahasa Indonesia version n Indonesia.
