Lessons Learned

  • Long-term engagement

  • Good facilitation quality of local partners – advocacy NGO >> university

  • Flexibility in programming  high impact and locally-relevant reforms

  • Methodologically sound analytical work as basis for reform

  • Inter local governments and inter partners cross-learning >> TA, conventional training

  • Understand power structure and incentives/disincentives of stakeholders

  • Strong leadership is important, but not a necessary condition nor sufficient

  • Working with and build coalition of agents (not necessary the institutions), e.g.,

    • Young or about-to-retire civil servants

    • Bappeda

    • At least 2 reform-minded DPRD members

    • Local activists (NGOs, journalists, etc.)

    • MBOs and political leaders

  • Critical junctures:

    • Local elections

    • National government’s policy/program

  • Advocate for national-level policy reforms based on field-level data and analyses

  • Participation is important, but existing channels may not be the right ones
