While Indonesia has seen good economic growth, it has also seen rising inequality in the last two decades. Currently, the country ranks number six in greatest wealth inequality in the world. MAHKOTA supports the Government of Indonesia to improve its social protection system and to reduce poverty and inequality. MAHKOTA operates as a flexible facility, working primarily with the Secretariat of the National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction (TNP2K), a think tank under the purview of the vice president, to deliver innovative policy reforms and initiatives.
MAHKOTA uses a flexible structure to provide strategic and technical program oversight, identify and articulate policy reform opportunities, procure personnel, provide financial support, and offer logistics and administrative services to the MAHKOTA core team and TPN2K, and provide monitoring, evaluation and learning for the program.
MAHKOTA’s goal is “a comprehensive and equitable social protection system for the whole of Indonesia by 2025.”
