Multiple Realities in Light of the SDGs – The Reality Check Approach in Different Contexts

Yulia Sugandi dan Peter Riddell-Carre (RCA+ Project, Palladium Group)

 

Abstrak: The commitment to ‘leave no one behind’ has been a key feature of all the discussions on the post-2015 agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The idea that ‘no goal should be met unless it is met for everyone’ is well established in the rhetoric around the Goals. In theory, this means ensuring that every individual achieves the full package of rights and opportunities of the SDGs.  The presentation describes two studies in Indonesia on how the Reality Check Approach (RCA) has been used in very different contexts to embrace and understand multiple people’s realities.  The first study elicits perspectives, observations and experiences of people living in poverty on their household financial management. The second study explores perspectives and experiences of the research culture at universities in Indonesia. The two studies demonstrate the application of the RCA in different contexts and how this method distinguishes itself from other human centered approach in reaching inclusivity.

Merancang Skenario Pengawasan di Era UU Desa

Rendy A. Diningrat (Lembaga Penelitian SMERU)

 

Abstrak: Pengawasan menjadi isu yang semakin disoroti setelah terungkapnya berbagai kasus penyelewengan anggaran desa di sejumlah daerah. Di sisi lain, kejelasan mengenai skenario pengawasan desa menjadi tantangan pasca berlakunya UU No. 6 Tahun 2014 tentang Desa (UU Desa). Paparan ini berupaya untuk menggali ide sekaligus merumuskan rancangan skenario pengawasan desa yang efektif dengan pilihan pendekatan tanpa menggunakan lensa berburu. Sebagai pemantik, paparan disandarkan pada hasil studi longitudinal implementasi UU Desa yang diselenggarakan Lembaga Penelitian SMERU (didukung oleh Local Solutions to Poverty/ LSP – World Bank) sejak November 2015 di 10 desa yang tersebar di Jambi, Jawa Tengah, dan Nusa Tenggara Timur.

Perubahan Sistem Penilaian Murid di Tingkat Pendidikan Dasar untuk Meningkatkan Hasil Pembelajaran: Temuan Awal Studi SABER-like

Akhmadi (Lembaga Penelitian SMERU)

 

Abstrak: Sistem penilaian murid atas hasil pembelajaran di tingkat pendidikan dasar mengalami perubahan mendasar dalam lima tahun terakhir ini. Tim studi Diagnostik Lembaga Penelitian SMERU bekerjasama dengan AIGHD dan Mathematica Policy Research telah melakukan penelitian menggunakan instrumen SABER-like. Studi ini dilakukan melalui wawancara mendalam terhadap para pemangku kepentingan di tingkat pusat, yaitu di lingkungan Kementerian Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan serta Kementerian Agama pada bulan Agustus-September 2017. Temuan awal studi menunjukkan bahwa perubahan sistem penilaian murid berpotensi meningkatkan akuntabilitas meskipun masih dijumpai berbagai kendala yang secara langsung berkontribusi terhadap peningkatan pembelajaran.

Unpaid Care Work in Indonesia: Why Should We Care?

Valentina Y. D. Utari (Lembaga Penelitian SMERU)

 

Abstrak: Unpaid care work which are commonly performed by women have yet to be recognized as part of production activities. Meanwhile, caring activities often limit women from having equal working opportunities with men, or creating multiple burdens for women that potentially reduce quality of care. Although unpaid care work has been included into SDGs goal 5 on gender equality, it has not been well addressed in Indonesia’s development policy due to limited data and studies on this issue. This study seeks to understand the situation of unpaid care work in Indonesia for developing better care related policies.

Buoyed by the boom? The differential returns to land and labor from an agricultural export boom

Allison Derrick (University of Wisconsin)

 

Abstrak: Agricultural export booms and busts have the potential to enrich or devastate rural households in developing countries. While the aggregate revenue gain depends on global price and local supply response, little is known about how this revenue diffuses within a local economy. This study demonstrates how resource revenue is distributed within a local economy during an agricultural export boom and bust. Using data from the Indonesian palm oil boom, the study argues that any increases in household expenditure from the price boom were temporary, and palm oil production may not be a sustainable poverty reduction strategy.

Corruption, governance, and inequality in Indonesia

Mayang Rizky (Lembaga Penelitian SMERU)

 

Abstrak: Ever since the rapid transformation of a decentralised system in Indonesia, income distribution in the country has become much more unequal as shown by an increase of consumption-based Gini coefficient from 0.31 in 2001 to 0.4 in 2016. Existing literature on efforts to reduce inequality in Indonesia rely mostly on economic factors and lacks investigation on non-economic aspects particularly with respect to governance including effective bureaucracy and anti-corruption mainstreaming policies. Using multiple datasets combining Corruption Perception Index (CPI), Governance Index (IGI), and budget realisation data at provincial levelt his study aims at examining the impact of good governance on inequality in Indonesia. This evidence would provide valuable and insightful information for policy makers that tackling inequality needs a comprehensive approach not only relying on economic issues.
