Employment Opportunity – , Communication and Knowledge Management Manager
DFAT’s new gender program, Empowering Indonesian Women for Poverty Reduction (MAMPU), aims to improve the welfare of poor women in Indonesia. Despite significant reforms, critical public services do not always reflect the needs of poor women, or are not accessible by poor women. This situation has been exacerbated by government decentralization where local governments are increasingly expected to deliver social services for the poor despite generally weak capacity to do so.
Analysis and consultations identified five thematic areas where reform would make a significant difference for poor women and where there are promising opportunities to achieve significant change:
- Improving women’s access to government social protection programs
- Increasing women’s access to jobs and removing workplace discrimination
- Improving conditions for women’s overseas labor migration
- Strengthening women’s leadership for better maternal and reproductive health
- Strengthening women’s leadership to reduce violence against women.
Identifying new approaches to increase poor women's access to services is the central purpose of this program. These solutions could include reform to local or national government (and in some cases private sector), policies, regulations and services.
