Economic and democratic governance

Australia has provided support to Indonesias law and justice sector for over 10 years, helping develop robust
legal and justice systems, well-run elections and an active civil society. The aid program is also assisting the
Indonesian government to strengthen its ability to formulate and implement economic and budgetary policy.
Australia is working to support Indonesias decentralization efforts by helping local governments improve the
way they deliver basic services such as education, health, water and sanitation. The program also provides
policy and strategic planning advice to the national government on its bureaucratic reform agenda.

Australia has a long history of working to improve Indonesias education sector, which is crucial to its future
economic development. Our current program is providing thousands of new school places, while also working
to improve school administration quality.

Australia is working with Indonesia to address the health needs of women and children, tackle HIV, malaria and
emerging infectious diseases, and to improve its health systems. We are also assisting it to plan for the long
term by strengthening its public health policy and budgetary capacity.

Australia is working with Indonesia to build, maintain and improve infrastructure services focusing on the road,
transport and water and sanitation sectors. We provide grants, loans and technical advice to ensure that

infrastructure reaches the people who need it, improving health results and promoting economic and social

Social Development
Our social development program works with the Indonesian Government to protect the poor from economic
shocks, send poor children to school and help families access health services. Were also promoting womens
leadership in business and politics, increasing the capacity of women to participate in building Indonesias

Rural Development
Nearly two-thirds of Indonesias poor live in rural areas and depend on agriculture to make a living. The
Australian and Indonesian governments are working together to improve the incomes of farmers, through
improving cultivation techniques, materials and access to business opportunities.

Disaster Risk Reduction

Australia is working with Indonesia to prepare for and prevent disasters, through the Australia-Indonesia
Facility for Disaster Reduction. In partnership with Indonesias National Disaster Management Agency, we
have produced world-class response tools and helped develop national policy.
