The Government of Indonesia is committed to accelerating the pace of poverty reduction and the President of Indonesia has declared that poverty reduction is among the highest development priorities of his administration.
This commitment is reflected in Indonesia’s national medium‐term development plan Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional, RPJMN, 2015‐2019), with a target to reduce the poverty rate from 11% in 2014 to 7‐8% by 2019. Indonesia’s achievements to reduce poverty have been significant: between 1999 and 2014, the poverty rate reduced from 23.4% to 11.0%.
However, almost 30 million Indonesians continue to live below the poverty line, and around 99 million are either living in or vulnerable to falling back into poverty. Furthermore, inequality has risen significantly since the late 1990s which can threaten both economic growth and stability.
Key policies for tackling poverty and inequality are investment in social protection and widening access to decent work. Indeed, there is strong international evidence that well-designed social protection can enable people to access the labour market and participate in income generating activities, while also helping generate higher economic growth
