Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to ADB website, the first Pillar of the Indonesia Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) for 2012-2014 identifies achieving inclusive growth which is essential for alleviating poverty by strengthening local governments' capacity for public service delivery. The CPS also identifies the crosscutting public sector management initiatives to support national efforts to strengthen governance in an increasingly decentralized framework. The proposed Capacity Development Technical Assistance (TA) supports the central government's fiscal decentralization agenda. In particular, it supports the implementation of the central government's two main strategic documents: the Grand Strategy for Fiscal Decentralization (GSFD) and the National Action Plan for Fiscal Decentralization (NAPFD). This TA is also in line with, and will support, the ongoing implementation of the DGFB's medium-term Institutional Transformation Program. This TA will focus on reducing dependency on fiscal transfers for local development by developing more buoyant sources of local revenues. The key aspect will be strengthening the capacity of LGs in tax policy and revenue administration. Thus, the proposed TA is in line with the ADB Independent Evaluation Department's recommendation to support Indonesia local governments in financial asset management.

This TA aims to support the Government of Indonesia (GoI) in strengthening local tax revenue administration and policy at the central and local levels.

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
