GOVERNANCE AWARD

THIRD ANNUAL INN-OBA-TIONS AWARD RECIPIENT - JANUARY 2016

The Indonesia Local Government and Decentralization Project improves accountability and reporting in the central government’s Specific Purpose Grants for basic infrastructure: roads, irrigation, water and sanitation. Using output-based disbursements, it supports the effectiveness of grant transfers to local government by ensuring that they deliver expected outputs. Begun as a pilot for 78 local governments, the project has been so successful that the government is scaling up the approach nationwide; by 2018, it will cover about 460 local governments. All project units and functions are already embedded within local government institutions. The strengthening of existing local capacities and country systems promotes sustainability and supports the government’s ability to verify outputs from any future investment projects.
