Kemitraan is focused on policy and sustainable governance related issues especially in giving provision on evidence based policy making process. In setting the right course of change, Kemitraan has discovered a unique approach in governance reform: building capacity from within and applying pressure from without – our multifaceted reform approach.
It involves working on several fronts – initiating reform within government agencies, empowering civil society to advocate for reform, and empowering communities to push for demand-driven development plans and public services.
Through its multi-stakeholder approach, Kemitraan tries to synergize and harmonize governance reform activities and to drive transformation via a network of partnerships.
Kemitraan’s comparative advantages include:
(1) as an Indonesian legal entity, it is well known and respected as a neutral and accountable organization with in-house skills to deal with governance issues which can convene Indonesian actors for high level lobby;
(2) has extensive networks of local partners to tap on as sub-contractors; and
(3) has funding mechanisms flexible enough to accommodate urgent programming priorities.
