Prospera (Australia Indonesia Partnership for Economic Development)

2018 - 2023
Client: DFAT
Implemented by: Cardno International Development
CHALLENGE

As Indonesia recovers from the pandemic and weathers a series of global economic shocks, Prospera supports the Indonesian government to safeguard economic stability, and pave the way to transform into a high-income economy by 2045 in line with Indonesia’s vision.

APPROACH

Prospera, implemented by Cardno International Development, a DT Global Company, supports Indonesia across three breakthrough areas:

  • Expanding markets creating jobs: Building a robust private sector through an enabling environment for job creation, capital formation, and technical innovation.
  • Safeguarding economic and financial stability: Ensuring a strong foundation for sustainable growth through sound macro policy and financial development.
  • Improving public finances and government performance: More revenue, better spending, and government administration through improved policy and systems.

Underpinning these are three enabling areas: capable and coordinated institutions support to Indonesia’s development transition, better policies that are inclusive of gender and disability, and effective partnership between the Government of Australia and the Government of Indonesia.

Prospera combines advisers with extensive knowledge of Indonesia, those with reform experience elsewhere, and advanced technical skills along with peer practitioners from the Australian public service. Advisers are based in Indonesia, working side by side with Indonesian partners, while others engage from around the world. Prospera responds to immediate policy issues requested by government while keeping a lens on emerging policy challenges such as digital transformation and climate policy. Prospera’s multiskilled teams engage across agencies to achieve policy outcomes.
