Indonesia has been undergoing a significant shift in its development landscape since the start of decentralization program in 2001. With the implementation of major transfer of functions, authority and resources to the local and regional level, sub national governments have increasing becoming crucial players in ensuring that Indonesia meets its development goals. They are responsible for managing over a third of all public spending in Indonesia, yet many local governments have insufficient capacity to do so effectively. Meanwhile, in a post decentralization environment, policies that influence growth and development are increasingly defined at regional and local level, and hence one size fit all analysis and policy recommendation for all regions in Indonesia are inadequate.
The Decentralization and regional development (DRD) cluster, within the poverty reduction and economic management (PREM) unit of the World Bank Office Jakarta, is a team that lead the engagement in analytical and advisory activities on issues related to decentralization and regional development in support of World Bank CPS’s (Country Partnership Strategy) objective of strengthening decentralized local governments and institutions.
The DRD cluster is now seeking to hire an economist to support its work programs. The economist will be an integral member of Decentralization and Regional Development cluster in the Jakarta country office, and will support the cluster in implementing its work programs which mainly consist of four streams of work: (i) Policy dialogue and analysis on decentralization policy framework; (ii) sub national public expenditures analysis and capacity harmonization; (iii) sub national inclusive growth analytical and advisory activities; (iv) sub national database management.
