Period of Assignment: One year full time, with the possibility of extension contingent on performance
Reporting To: Head of Partnerships and Policy (HoPP), INKLUSI


The Australia-Indonesia Partnership Towards an Inclusive Society, or INKLUSI, is a $120 million, 8-year (2021-2029) Australian Government bilateral flagship program, working to increase the participation of marginalised groups in, and their benefit from, Indonesia’s socio-cultural, economic and political development. INKLUSI works with government and civil society partners to advance their work in gender equality, the rights of persons with disabilities and social inclusion. This work builds on decades of work by Indonesian Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and social movements, including the women’s movement to advance Gender Equality, Disability and Social Inclusion (GEDSI). INKLUSI is working to ensure all Indonesians benefit from:

  • Improved access to services.
  • Protection from violence.
  • Economic resilience and livelihoods.
  • Inclusive participation in development.

INKLUSI supports the Government of Indonesia’s agenda for inclusion, including through national development plans and the Sustainable Development Goals. It is aligned with Pillar One of the Indonesia- Australia Comprehensive Strategic Partnership, and the associated Plan of Action, which commits to cooperation to “address poverty and inequality, promote women’s leadership and empowerment on disability-inclusive development; the Stability Pillar of the Australia-Indonesia COVID-19 Development Response Plan; and the GoI Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN IV 2020- 2024). INKLUSI supports the RPJMN agenda of “enhancing the quality and competitiveness of human resources”, and specifically the RPJMN’s Gender Equality and Women Empowerment policy and its Social Inclusion policy direction. It also supports Indonesia’s commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the call to “Leave no one behind” in development, while responding to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the disproportionate socioeconomic impacts on women and communities experiencing marginalisation as well as the potential threats posed to democratic spaces.
