  I. BACKGROUND The commitment demonstrated by the
Indonesian Government to the implementation of CEDAW and Beijing Platform for
Action is implemented by the issuance of Presidential Instruction No 9/2000 on
Gender Mainstreaming in National Development. Since then, gender mainstreaming
has been further strengthened in the National Long Term Development Planning
(RPJPN) 2005-2025, which breaks down into the National Middle Term Development
Planning (RPJMN) 2004-2009, 2010-2014, and 2015-2019 in which gender equality is
mentioned as the goal in the Indonesian development
programme.    The
commitment is further strengthened in the policy framework through the issuance
of the Ministry of Finance Regulation PMK No 119/2009 concerning Guideline of
Submission and Review of Annual Ministries Work Plan and Budget. The policy has
laid out the foundation of incorporating gender analysis into the national planning
of the budgeting system in the seven piloted ministries. The seven piloted
ministries consist of three coordinating ministries, namely; Ministry of
National Planning, Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection, Ministry
of Finance. The other four ministries are; Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of
Education, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Public Works. Priority areas for
the sectoral piloted ministries are given to the programmes and activities on
service delivery and for the driver ministries, the priority is given to
strengthen the structure. After two
years of implementation, in 2011 the government of Indonesia conducted evaluation
of the GRPB piloted both in the national and sub-national level. The result of the
evaluation is positive and it was recommended with further continuation of Gender

Responsive Planning and Budgeting (GRPB) into other ministries and state
institutions. The evaluation also found that the GRPB works well through the

engagement of gender focal points in each ministries. In the sub-national
level, GRPB has been implemented since 2010 in four provinces, namely; Banten,
Yogyakarta, Central Java, and East Java. It is found that commitment of the
Governor and the driver’s institution from the respected province contributed
significantly to the success of GRPB implementation in the provincial
level.  Strengthening
and articulating gender mainstreaming into national development plan in 2012,
the four coordinating ministries of gender mainstreaming; Ministry of Women
Empowerment and Child Protection, Ministry of National Development Plan,
Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Home Affairs, endorsed the National Strategy
of Gender Responsive Planning and Budgeting (Perencanaan dan Penganggaran Responsive
Gender/PPRG) covering the period 2012-2014 including the guideline to execute
GRPB in the ministerial level/ state institutions and local government.  The objective of the National Strategy of GRPB
is to integrate gender into government development cycles by; 1). Institutionalizing
commitment of ministries /state institutions in the national and sub-national
level. 2). Providing systematic coordination among drivers and technical
agencies, 3). Strengthening ministries/state institutions in formulating gender
responsive planning and budgeting, and implementation of GRPB in the national
and sub-national level. Concerning
the National Strategy of GRPB 2012-2014, completed in 2014, the Ministry of
Development Planning is now evaluating its implementation to take the lessons
learnt and best practices. The result of the evaluation will be used as a
foundation to develop the National Strategy of GRPB covering the year 2017-2020.
