GIZ – SPP: Financial Inclusion Advisor

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale
Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for
sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is
to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis. GIZ has been
working in Indonesia since 1975 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for
Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
 In the context of the bilateral cooperation
between the Government of Germany and the Government of Indonesia, the Social
Protection Programme (SPP) assists the Government of Indonesia in the
development of long-term strategies for a comprehensive
system of Social Protection. The National Development Planning Agency
(BAPPENAS) is its main partner. The collaboration has been reinforced and
strengthened during the German-Indonesian Government Negotiations in 2015. SPP has
a new phase in July 2016 and is part of the priority area “Inclusive Growth”.
 SPP aims at improving the framework
conditions for the implementation of an integrated social protection system,
contributing to the efforts of the Indonesian Government for a sustainable
and inclusive economic growth. The programme works in the following intervention
areas: (1) Social Assistance: capacity building for the Ministry of
Social Affairs (MoSA) / Unit Pengelolaan Program Keluarga Harapan (UPPKH) to
establish adequate managerial structures and improve the extension of the
Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programme; (2) Social Health Protection:
building and technical support for Dewan Jaminan Sosial Nasional (DJSN) to
strengthen its role in the implementation of the National Roadmap on Health and
the establishment of the new social security carrier Badan Penyelenggara
Jaminan Sosial I (BPJS I, Health); (3) Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities: support
MoSA and other stakeholders on the inclusion of persons with disabilities into
social protection, vocational training systems and the labour market; (4) Financial Inclusion: advisory services and
technical support to BAPPENAS and other stakeholders on the establishment of
Postal Savings and electronic payment systems.
 A key element of
the RPJMN 2015 – 2019 – related to the intervention areas 1 and 4 mentioned
above – is to restructure social assistance through the expansion of coverage
and the improvement of program design (e.g., for KIP, KKS, PKH, etc). Building
upon this policy guidance, the Government of Indonesia (GoI) has decided (a) to
significantly upscale the conditional cash-transfer Program Keluarga Harapan
(PKH) to 5-6m poor families (= 25 – 30m persons) in 2016 and (b) to move from
cash-based to accounts-based electronic cash-transfers. GoI aims at reaching
500,000 poor families through accounts-based electronic cash-transfers by the
end of 2016.
