About South Sulawesi

South Sulawesi is the most populous province in the island of Sulawesi with population of about 8.0 million people. The poverty rate in South Sulawesi is 9.1%, just below the national average of 9.8% (BPS, 2018).

Comparatively, South Sulawesi is one of the better performing provinces in Indonesia in terms of poverty reduction. However, the remoteness of certain areas – such as outlying islands – means there are some disparities in access to basic services.

KOMPAK in South Sulawesi

Since 2016, KOMPAK has been supporting the Provincial Government of South Sulawesi and two districts: Bantaeng and Pangkajene dan Kepulauan (Pangkep).

KOMPAK’s support to South Sulawesi 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 South Sulawesi 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.

  • Piloting and support for replication of the ‘boat class’ approach for children to continue their education while working at sea. This was awarded as one of the top 20 public service innovations in Indonesia by SINOVIK.

  • Expanding coverage and use of the village information system and kecamatan dashboard so that villages are able to better plan and prioritise services.

  • 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.

Story of Change
Building An Inclusive Village That Is Just And Inclusive

The district of Pangkajene and Kepulauan (Pangkep) is known as 'three dimensional' area that surrounded by mountains, lowlands and islands. This creates its own set of challenges in carrying out development activities, especially in the villages. In the island groups, inclusive village development becomes a daunting task for the local government because of the challenging geographic conditions, which requires its own approach and strategy.

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.

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.
