Strengthening Public Financial Management Systems for Better Results: Budget tagging, tracking and evaluation in Indonesia
This report describes experiences and lessons learned from Indonesia’s successful implementation of tracking and performance evaluation of national spending on priority nutrition interventions. Budget tagging, tracking and evaluation is an option that can be implemented in a very basic form that is in accordance with existing laws and public financial management systems. In Indonesia, it improved multisectoral management and accountability on the Government’s stunting reduction program. Drawing from over three years of implementation, this report seeks to both (i) support the Government of Indonesia’s efforts to further strengthen its Public Financial Management (PFM) systems for better nutrition results through a multisectoral approach, and (ii) provide successful experiences that can be replicated by other countries and/or other multisectoral programs in Indonesia.
