More about the KOMPAK program
The overarching purpose of this work will be to support the GOI to strengthen the capacity of all levels of Indonesian government and communities for improved services and economic growth. It will support GOI’s long-term goal to be a prosperous and stable Indonesia, in part brought about because communities are active and inclusive, and because the state is capable and responsive to the needs of its citizens.
It is planned that the Program will have three substantive Components to support this long-term goal by contributing to the development of active, inclusive communities and of a capable, responsive state as summarised below, interacting as necessary with sectoral investments under the frontline framework:
(a) Work under Component One 1 will foster active, inclusive communities to support community development in Indonesia;
(b) If implemented under Component Two, AIPD2 would foster a capable, responsive Indonesian state by supporting central and subnational governments for improved public service delivery; and
(c) If implemented under Component Three, NGO support and strengthening would support efforts to foster active, inclusive communities and a capable, responsive Indonesian state.
KOMPAK consolidates and builds on DFAT investments in village empowerment, service delivery governance and civil society strengthening by integrating them into a single structure. It also recognises the importance of local economic growth to poverty reduction.
This integrated structure will: enhance coordination with stakeholders and across the aid program; minimise duplication; maximise value-for-money; and deliver flexible, adaptive and effective activities for strong results. It recognises the value of partnership between DFAT and the private sector to design and implement innovative development solutions.
