Evaluation of the Implementation of the Model Universitas Membangun Desa (UMD)

This study is aimed at evaluating the UMD model in order to get the main learning points for increasing the effectiveness and dissemination of the UMD model in the future. The evaluation was carried out in three provinces, Aceh, East Java, and South Sulawesi where KOMPAK had supported the previous UMD model KKN trials. During the trial, the universities that received support were the Ar-Raniry State Islamic University (UIN) Banda Aceh in Aceh, Jember University (UNEJ) in East Java, Parahyangan Catholic University in West Java and UIN Alauddin Makassar in South Sulawesi. In South Sulawesi, the scope of this evaluation was expanded to see lessons learned in the implementation of the UMD model of KKN in Pangkajene and Islands (Pangkep) districts which specifically received technical support from KOMPAK. The Pangkep Government has signed an agreement on the implementation of the Thematic KKN UMD with a number of universities and invited KKN students from UNEJ to implement the UMD model. In this evaluation, the research team interviewed 61 respondents (40 male respondents, 21 female respondents), and made direct observations in seven villages in three provinces where UMD activities were carried out by University partner.

Feasibility Study Report Blockchain Trial and Other Technologies to Support The BANGGA Papua Program

This feasibility study was conducted to find out whether blockchain and other technology trials could be carried out to help implement the BANGGA Papua program. To answer this, we collected data by conducting desk reviews, interviews, and field observations, to describe the existing business processes. Furthermore, it was necessary to identify what kind of technology use could reduce the gap between the expected situation and the current situation in the field. The conclusion of this study is that improvement in the implementation of BANGGA Papua is needed, by using the appropriate technologies, as summarised in the following three recommendations. The first recommendation is for the continued development of the BANGGA Papua Management Information System (MIS) by adding features and data integration, so that the registration process and determination of beneficiaries are more efficient. The second is for the use of biometrics to improve the quality of verification and validation of beneficiaries in the field. The third is for the monitoring of beneficiary transactions at the location of expenditure, so that the funds channelled can be monitored for further evaluation.

Strategic yet delicate: the dilemma of involving health workers in facilitating birth registration in Indonesia

Birth registration provides the basis for population data. Previous studies have examined that collaboration between the health sector and civil registration can help improve birth registration rate. However, there was a little exploration into health workers’ understanding of civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) and their perceived role in it. This study aims to fill this gap by focusing on the perspective of both health personnel in a managerial position and those who are involved in direct service provision to the community. Finally, we discussed the opportunities and challenges to strengthen the birth registration presented by health workers’ diverse views.
