Executive Director’s Outlook

The Partnership remains vigorous in practicing its core mandates, i.e. bridging local, national and global collective actions, mobilizing resources commonly pooled to support transformations, as well as advocating the setting of reform agenda to all partners. A number of new initiatives have been developed with these spirit, among others in the area of financing climate adaptation initiatives, fighting against IUU Fishing and corruption prevention. All these actions are implemented synergic with our poverty reduction programs.

On top of those, the Partnership is consistently aware that the people must be placed at the heart of reforms. Hence, new initiatives are developed to enhance the resilience of the people most notably by improving the capacity in controlling and amplifying the ownership and use of data and information. Integrated within the peat land restoration project, a series of training are conducted on aerial mapping so that common members of communities are able to gather first hand data and information.

New initiatives are also developed to improve the integrity of governmental and political agencies. Collaborating with the Attorney General Office, a new initiative on asset repatriation and mutual legal assistance is ready for implementation. Meanwhile, to push the political reform further, the Partnership supports the improvement of political capacities of the young politicians in the Parliament.
