Detailed Description of Tasks to be Performed:
USAID’s MADANI Civil Society Support Initiative is a five-year, $19.8 million project implemented by FHI 360. MADANI partners with sub-national civil society organizations (CSO) and local governments (LG) to strengthen government accountability and promote communal tolerance, working directly with subnational CSOs in 32 districts in 6 Indonesian provinces (East Java, Central Java, West Java, Central Kalimantan, West Nusa Tenggara, South Sulawesi, and Gorontalo, with four districts in each province). Adjusting to the USAID’s new Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) in Indonesia, geographical focus of the MADANI will be changed into 6 provinces including Banten, West Java, Central Java, East Java, South Sulawesi and West Kalimantan. The two new partner provinces of the project are West Kalimantan and Banten.
Using grants, the project will empower local CSOs to dedicate time and resources to become more professional by improving their operational systems, expanding their membership and stakeholder reach and relevance, and building up sustainable means of mobilizing financial resources, including from the government and private sector, to support their mission. MADANI will facilitate improved collaboration between LGs and CSOs by promoting the benefits partnerships and providing clarity and guidance to LGs on regulations and policies that promote collaboration.
MADANI will work toward this vision by capacitating and giving voice to credible civil society organizations in the target districts. Using grants, the project will empower CSOs to dedicate time and resources to improving their own operational systems, expanding their membership and stakeholder reach and relevance, and building up sustainable means of mobilizing financial resources, including from the government and private sector, to support their mission. To achieve this, MADANI is organized by two thematical and three organizational issues. The thematical issues are accountability and tolerance and are further detailed as:
- Anti-corruption, specifically around awareness raising and local budget transparency
- Frontline service delivery, specifically citizen report and social accountability
- Natural resource governance, specifically on sustainable land-use
- Health, specifically minimum service standards and health insurance for maternal and neonatal health
- Village funds transparency, improving citizen engagement in planning and oversight
- Communal tolerance, specifically around raising awareness on stereotyping and spreading disinformation.
The three organizational issues are internal CSO-oriented, around capacity, legitimacy and sustainability. MADANI will work closely with civil society organizations in Indonesia to (1) strengthen their organizational capacity and the effectiveness and efficiency of their work; (2) improve the legitimacy of CSOs in the eyes of local government and communities; and (3) bolster efforts to improve the sustainability of CSO to bring about social change through improving the enabling environment for civil society and mobilizing local resources.
District selection will begin at the 2 new additional provinces. Shortly after district selection done, District consultation and CSOs selection will be started. As a first step, MADANI will hire consultant to support a success of districts consultation processes, CSOs selection and other relevant tasks including establish and maintain contact with related stakeholder in all provincial partners, among others West Kalimantan, and Banten. The consultant will work closely with MADANI staff during the district consultation take places and identification of potential CSOs at the local level.
