West Nusa Tenggara – known as NTB – has a population of 4.7 million and is located to the east of Bali. The 2018 earthquake resulted in severe infrastructure, economic, and social damage, and claimed over 500 lives. The district of Lombok Utara was the most severely affected with nearly 90% of all infrastructure destroyed.
The poverty rate in NTB is 15%, with some wide regional variations (BPS, 2018). Lombok Utara has the highest poverty rate at 32%, while the other KOMPAK target districts had poverty rates below 20%.
Since 2016, KOMPAK has been supporting the Provincial Government of NTB and four districts: Lombok Utara, Lombok Timur, Sumbawa and Bima.
KOMPAK’s support to NTB 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 NTB 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.
Contributions towards improvements in civil registration and vital statistics, such as using supporting villages to fund, engage and train village registration officers. KOMPAK is also supporting Bappenas to develop national guidelines for providing CRVS services in post-disaster situations based on lessons from the response to the 2018 Lombok earthquake.
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.
Supporting the Paradigta Academy to train and mentor women from villages to take more active roles in local government, village councils and women’s groups.
Expanding coverage and use of the village information system and kecamatan dashboard so that villages are able to better plan and prioritise services.
Three of KOMPAK’s supported models won the 2021 TOP 45 Public Service Innovation Award at the 2021 National Public Service Innovation Competition (SINOVIK) event.
The University Building Village Program (UMD) has extended to East Lombok District. Preparations began in June 2019 with the drafting of KKN guidelines

Many residents of Tengah Village, Sumbawa Regency, West Nusa Tenggara, come from immigrant families – especially from Lombok. The old ID cards and family cards that were not replaced after migration and the location of the mukim in remote remote areas made it difficult for them to apply for social assistance. The Village Head initiative supported by KOMPAK, the Sumbawa Regency Government, and other stakeholders made it easier for residents to process population documents and ultimately paved the way for them to access various types of government assistance.
The ripe-old age, economically impoverished, and knowledge-in-minimum have made the immigrants too helpless to register their residency status. However, without them realizing it, they need to complete the legal identity documents to access the government social assistance.
