Background

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

ART GOLD Indonesia (AGI) Programme has been designed by group of UN agencies under UNDP leadership to promote the strategic articulation among the development cooperation institutions and programmes that support national and local dynamics of Governance and Local development. The selected areas of intervention are the Provinces of Gorontalo and NTT.

The objective of the Art Gold Indonesia Programme is to create, support and strengthen decentralized cooperation partnerships between municipalities in Indonesia and European municipalities and regions, which will set a foundation for a broader process of local development and support to the decentralisation process in Indonesia.

AGI will continue to a multi level approach that simultaneously implements activities at the local, national and international levels. At the international level the programme will support the exchange of innovations, experience and good practices with other southern and northern countries in view of internationalization of the Indonesian cultural, economic and social reality. At the national level the programme will support capacity building and training activities in the field of governance and local development with the national government and other institutions, as well as promote discussions through seminars, workshops and events aimed at the validation of the programme methodologies and their extension to other provinces. At the local level the programme aims at implementing concrete projects and activities under five components – Governance, Local Economic Development, Education and Vocational Training, Social Development and Environment.

The project objectives are shaped by provincial and district working groups that are established during the Project Initiation phase. These working groups are participatory and inclusive fora, which are comprised of relevant stakeholders from the local governments, the civil society and the private sector.
