The Australia-Indonesia Partnership Towards an Inclusive Society (AIPTIS) is a $75M, 5-year investment (2020-25) funded by Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) that will contribute to the broader development goal of ”Leave No One Behind” – working towards more marginalised people participating in and benefiting from Indonesia’s socio-cultural economic, and political development.
AIPTIS continues Australia’s support to Indonesia’s prosperity, building on advancements in the areas of gender equality and women’s empowerment, social inclusion, and civil society strengthening. This includes experience and lessons working in community-driven development, civil society programs, women’s empowerment, and inclusive development programs – most recently through the MAMPU and Peduli Programs. It also builds on decades of work by Indonesian CSOs and social movements, including the women’s movement to advance GEDSI.
AIPTIS supports the shared policy priorities of the Government of Indonesia (GoI) and the Government of Australia (GoA). It is aligned with Pillar One of the Indonesia- Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, and the associated Plan of Action, which commits to cooperation to “address poverty and inequality, promote women’s leadership and empowerment on disability-inclusive development; the Stability Pillar of the Australia-Indonesia COVID-19 Development Response Plan; and the GoI Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN IV 2020-2024). AIPTIS supports the RPJMN agenda of “enhancing the quality and competitiveness of human resources”, and specifically the RPJMN’s Gender Equality and Women Empowerment policy and its Social Inclusion policy direction. It also supports Indonesia’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the call to “Leave no one behind” in development, while responding to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the disproportionate socioeconomic impacts on women and communities experiencing marginalisation as well as the potential threats posed to civil society spaces.
