The Government of Indonesia, in its effort to strengthen democracy and improve public service, has been implementing decentralized governance through regional autonomy.  Significant devolution of public service delivery responsibilities and development resources had taken place since the implementation of Laws 22 and 25 of 1999.  The Laws were recently revised with the passages of Law 32 and 33 of 2004.  The above legislative framework along with the new law on National Planning System (Law 25/2004) poses both challenges and opportunity in completing the adjustment process toward ideal decentralized public services, which are more responsive to the demand of the citizens at the local level.

UNDP is assisting the Government of Indonesia in implementing a decentralization support programme aimed at facilitating the local and provincial governments in implementing decentralized governance.  The programme includes a core project on demand-driven public services delivery improvement at the Kabupaten/Kota levels (through Building and Reinventing Decentralized Governance-BRIDGE project),. BRIDGE project is ending, but a number of exit-strategy activities are planned to be implemented until June 2008. However, within BRIDGE project, two new flagship projects of the Decentralization Programme of UNDP, the Provincial Governance Support Programme (PGSP) and ART Gold Indonesia Programme are on the process of preparation.

PGSP will work on the rapidly changing contexts of decentralization in Indonesia, in particular on the position, roles and responsibilities of the provincial government. AGIP will work to promote strategic international cooperation between provincial and local governments utilizing territorial (area-based) development approach addressing issues related with the fulfillment of the MDGs. The project documents for these new projects are being prepared while some of the preparation activities are already on-going. The target is to have the full-fledged projects running in 2009.

The preparatory activities will involve, among others, development of project documents, establishment of ART Gold working group, development of ART Gold quick impact initiatives, finalization of the Provincial Human Development Report of Gorontalo (Gorontalo will be the first pilot province of PGSP), capacity assessment of provincial government of Gorontalo, research on the alternatives to Proliferation of the Regions (Pemekaran Daerah), technical assistance to a key office of the Indonesian Government in responding to complex decentralization issues, as well as assessment missions to some regions to explore the possibilities of developing local governance reform projects.
