ASIA is a regional planning tool that provides reliable, accurate and relevant data focusing on children and women which can be used by districts or cities to design programs in order to fulfill children and women’s rights. ASIA was developed by the Ministry of Home Affairs in 1998 through intensive cooperation with the National Development Planning Board (Bappenas), and UNICEF. ASIA uses a life cycle and human rights-based approach to programming (HRBAP), and has been developed and implemented since 1997. It continues to be revised in terms of approaches, methods and implementation strategy. The Ministry of Home Affairs has issued a Ministerial Circulation Letter and Technical Guidelines of ASIA development (JUKNIS ASIA) to encourage local governments adopting ASIA and assist them to integrate ASIA in their planning process. Nevertheless, of all regencies and cities in Indonesia, only a few have use ASIA in the planning process. To respond to this problem, an evaluation of ASIA implementation in Polewali Mandar Regency, and Surakarta City is being conducted. The evaluation aims to identify the success of ASIA program in achieving outputs and outcomes, to identify the challenges and obstacles in the implementation, and to formulate solutions for the improvement of future programs. In addition, as government has also launched another program called KLA (kota layak anak/children friendly city), the evaluation is also to develop tools by integrating ASIA and KLA.
