Overview of SKALA
The SKALA Program is a significant Australian investment designed to help Indonesia address regional disparities in development. SKALA will contribute to this objective by strengthening selected elements of Indonesia’s large and complex decentralised government system responsible for the delivery of basic services (Layanan Dasar). The SKALA Program’s core approach is to facilitate better collaboration (Kolaborasi) between Indonesian government stakeholders, at national and subnational levels, to help realise synergies (Sinergi) that will trigger improved service delivery. Moreover, SKALA will build on, and take to scale, the successes and learning from Australia’s previous 17 years of support to Indonesia’s decentralised government system. The SKALA Program is to be implemented through the following three pillars:
- Pillar 1: Stronger national level enabling environment for sub-national service delivery
- Pillar 2: Better sub-national governance for service delivery
- Pillar 3: Greater participation, representation and influence for women, people with disabilities and vulnerable groups
The technical advisory panel under the GEDSI unit aims to support and provide technical input to the implementation of the SKALA GEDSI work plan.
