UNDP Indonesia’s mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.

Organizational Context

This will be achieved by improving citizens’ access to justice and supporting the evolution of a more responsive justice system. The project was developed on the basis of needs identified during a UNDP-led access to justice assessment undertaken in Aceh in early 2006, the conclusions of which were substantially used to inform its design.
