The project aims to assist Indonesia to improve extractive sector governance and maximize opportunities for the sector’s positive contribution to poverty reduction and shared prosperity in Indonesia. The project supports central and subnational governments to better coordinate, formulate and implement sustainable policy reforms in the extractive sector. It increases access for the public and the private sector to extractive sector policy planning and development. It increases availability of evidence-based approaches to policy making and the quality and mechanisms for sector monitoring and oversight. The project strives to increase the benefits received by the Indonesian citizens from extractive sector revenues and reduce negative environmental impact of the sector development.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved sustainable and equitable management of the extractive sector, including revenues, by targeted national, regional and local governments and institutions in Indonesia; and (2) improved energy, environmental and gender-equitable social outcomes, including benefit sharing at local level, from the extractive sector in Indonesia.

Results achieved 

Results achieved of the end of the project (December 2021) include: (1) produced frameworks, knowledge products and tools to help Government officials improve transparency and monitoring of extractives sector operations. These include data management review, data gap analysis, and a data mainstreaming roadmap to move towards systematic disclosure of extractive sector data following the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) standards. As a result, the Government of Indonesia has increased its capacity to mainstream extractive data collation and disclosure into regular Government institutional processes, thereby ensuring the sustainability of processes. This leads the public to better data access; (2) established institutional mechanisms to comply with the EITI standard. With this standard in place, the Government of Indonesia internalized ownership and financing for preparing extractive reports to EITI from 2018 onwards. By 2019, Indonesia had succeeded in disaggregating its extractive reporting and was assessed by EITI Board to have made ‘Meaningful Progress’ in implementing the 2016 EITI Standard. In 2020, (NR4D) helped ensure a smooth transition of ministerial ownership of EITI within the Government of Indonesia; and (3) supported the Government of Indonesia in establishing Extractives Data Portal. From 2016 to 2017, NR4D supported the development of the Indonesia extractive industries data portal, which provides an online platform for accessing all data in EITI reports (e.g. production, revenues and licenses). NR4D has also undertaken strategic public outreach activities to maximize the public’s utilization of the EITI reports. This project is a sub-project under the broader project Natural Resources for Development project (2015-2021)
