The Australia-Indonesia Partnership Towards an Inclusive Society (AIPTIS) is a $75m, 5-year investment (2020-25) that will contribute to the broader development goal of No one is left behind – more marginalised people participate in and benefit 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.
