Within the overall context of Indonesia, this Situation Analysis for Children Report aims to identify, analyse, and explore the available data on the trends and patterns in the major problems affecting children and women in Indonesia over the past decade (2000-2010). It also aims to explore policy initiatives, innovations, and challenges in responding to these problems in the new decentralised governance structures of Indonesia and to provide recommendations for policy makers and practitioners at the national and sub-national levels.
The Situation Analysis comprises five sections: (1) Introduction, (2) Socio-political, Economic and Demographic Context, (3) Analysis of National Indicators on the Situation of Children and Women (4) Children and Decentralization (with a subsection on Voices of Children) and (5) Policy Recommendations.
Section 4 focuses on four very different provinces, namely Aceh, Papua, Central Java and East Nusa Tenggara. For each, an in-depth analysis is conducted on one relevant sector or issue.
