Indonesia Country Strategic Plan (2017–2020)

Operation ID: ID01

Country Strategic Plan approved at EB.1/2017

Over the past decade, Indonesia has halved the percentage of its population living in hunger and extreme poverty. Achieving food security and improved nutrition for all Indonesians is possible, particularly if the Government’s capacity to address malnutrition, adapt to climate change and prepare for disasters is augmented.

Food sovereignty and nutrition are central to the National Medium-Term Development Plan  (2015–2019). The Government seeks WFP’s support for two of its five priorities: improving nutrition and the quality of food, and mitigating the effects of disasters on food security.

This Country Strategic Plan is based on a strategic review of food security and nutrition, incorporating feedback from the Government, civil society, the private sector and development partners. The Government, the strategic review and the country portfolio evaluation recommended that WFP focus on policy advice, capacity development and knowledge-sharing to support the Government’s investments in food security, nutrition and emergency preparedness.

With the aim of reducing by 9 million the number of severely food-insecure people by 2020, this Country Strategic Plan will implement four activities to achieve three strategic outcomes: 

  • Strategic outcome 1: Reduce severe food insecurity by 1 percent per year, prioritizing the most vulnerable people and regions using an evidence-based approach: Activity 1: Support the Government in collecting and analysing food security and nutrition data for optimum policies and programmes

  • Strategic outcome 2: An increased percentage of Indonesian consumers adopt a more balanced diet, enabling Indonesia to meet its national desirable dietary pattern target of 92.5 by 2019: Activity 2: Promote balanced diets to address undernutrition and overweight. Activity 3: Improve the efficiency and nutrition impact of national social protection programmes

  • Strategic outcome 3: Indonesia’s emergency logistics capacity will be upgraded to respond in a timely and coordinated manner to disasters:  Activity 4: Enhance emergency preparedness and response through the establishment of an integrated network of logistics hubs. 

WFP will work with a wide range of actors to deliver these strategic outcomes. WFP’s primary partner is the Government. It will also cooperate and coordinate with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the International Fund for Agricultural Development, the United Nations Children’s Fund, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Global Pulse data initiative, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the Scaling Up Nutrition movement, local and international civil society, the private sector, media organizations and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Humanitarian Agency.

This Country Strategic Plan is aligned with Strategic Results 1 and 2 of WFP’s Strategic Plan  (2017–2021) and Sustainable Development Goals 2, End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition, and promote sustainable agriculture, and 17, Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. It was designed in accordance with the United Nations Partnership for Development Framework (2016–2020) and has a gender marker code of 2A.
