About South Sulawesi

South Sulawesi is the most populous province in the island of Sulawesi with population of about 8.0 million people. The poverty rate in South Sulawesi is 9.1%, just below the national average of 9.8% (BPS, 2018).

Comparatively, South Sulawesi is one of the better performing provinces in Indonesia in terms of poverty reduction. However, the remoteness of certain areas – such as outlying islands – means there are some disparities in access to basic services.

KOMPAK in South Sulawesi

Since 2016, KOMPAK has been supporting the Provincial Government of South Sulawesi and two districts: Bantaeng and Pangkajene dan Kepulauan (Pangkep).

KOMPAK’s support to South Sulawesi for 2019-2022 focuses on kecamatan and village strengthening, public financial management, civil registration and vital statistics, basic education services, and local economic development. KOMPAK also supports the district and provincial governments to implement the National Strategy for Stunting Prevention.

Highlights of KOMPAK’s support in South Sulawesi include:

  • Operationalising the Ministry of Home Affairs Strategy for Village Apparatus Capacity Development (PKAD), particularly through piloting village government facilitators at the sub-district-level to support village governance.

  • Piloting and support for replication of the ‘boat class’ approach for children to continue their education while working at sea. This was awarded as one of the top 20 public service innovations in Indonesia by SINOVIK.

  • Expanding coverage and use of the village information system and kecamatan dashboard so that villages are able to better plan and prioritise services.

  • Piloting market linkage approach where coffee, seaweed and other local producers are supported to form business groups, develop partnerships with local businesses, and gain access to national buyers.

Building An Inclusive Village That Is Just And Inclusive

The district of Pangkajene and Kepulauan (Pangkep) is known as 'three dimensional' area that surrounded by mountains, lowlands and islands. This creates its own set of challenges in carrying out development activities, especially in the villages. In the island groups, inclusive village development becomes a daunting task for the local government because of the challenging geographic conditions, which requires its own approach and strategy.

Rukmini Makes Dreams Come True

Usually, these children are reluctant to go back to school due to the feeling that they are way behind the lessons. At the time, teachers clung to the idea that teaching and learning could only be done in the classroom. On the other hand, parents have not actively supported their children’s education. This resulted in the high number of children who were dropping out of school in the islands region. This experience inspired me to develop

Guidelines for Facilitating Replication and Institutionalization Village Budget School and Aspiration Command Post

The initiative to strengthen the capacity of the BPD and the community, including vulnerable groups, is one of the models KOMPAK has piloted in encouraging the strengthening of social accountability in villages. Since the implementation of the Village Law, many development priorities at the village level have been decided at the village level. Due to the limited channels for community aspirations for village planning, KOMPAK together with the National Secretariat of Fitra pushed for the formation of the Aspirations Post where the community could convey development constraints and priorities that need attention from the village government. On the other hand, the role and function of the BPD is also strengthened through the Village Budget School (Sekar) where the BPD and the community receive training on transparent and inclusive village governance. Furthermore, the resolution of residents' aspirations and complaints is followed up, for example, discussed in the Village Deliberation or Musrenbangdes, escorted into the Village RPJM, Village RKP and Village Budget, or used as the basis for the formulation of Service Declarations, both at the village and supra-village levels.
