The seminar will present the preliminary result of the research on “The Effectiveness of Poverty Reduction Program in Fifteen Districts/Cities in Indonesia” which is being carried out by the Center for Southeast Asian Social Studies (CESASS) and Center for Rural and Regional Development Studies, University of Gajah Mada on behalf of Ford Foundation. We will also present the newly developed People’s Welfare Index (IKRAR, Indeks Kesejahteraan Rakyat), which has been constructed by the Coordinating Ministry of People’s Welfare and the Central Bureau of Statistics, in collaboration with Ford Foundation and civil society organizations. IKRAR has three main indicators to capture the dimension of Economic Justice, Social Justice and Democracy. The performance of the fifteen districts/cities for the period of 2007-2010, as measured by the IKRAR, will also be presented and discussed.
