Survey, Mapping & Spatial Planning
Gender, Community & Inclusion
Building local government capacity in spatial planning across five districts in Riau Province.
In late 2008, Indonesia was selected by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) Board of Directors as a country eligible for a compact. The Government of Indonesia (GoI; through the National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS)), was responsible for coordinating the development and implementation of the Compact (MCA), which covered three key programs, one of which was the Green Prosperity (GP) Project. The Compact implemented gender activities, environmental assessments and social assessments to support program implementation.
Projects such as these respond to constraints to economic growth and were priorities in the GoI’s national development strategy. The GoI also made a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 26 percent by 2020, while maintaining a target of seven percent annual economic growth.
The GP Project consisted of four procurement activities: (1) Participatory Land Use Planning Activity (PLUP); (2) Technical Assistance and Oversight Activity; (3) GP Facility Activity, and (4) Green Knowledge Activity. PMaP7 was the seventh project in a series of eight PLUP sub-activity projects. It covered three main tasks:
PMaP7 undertook capacity building activities with local government in five districts in the Riau province (Kampar, Kuantan Singingi, Pelalawan, Rokan Hilir and Rokan Hulu districts). The aim was for spatial information and technology to be more effectively used to develop spatial plans. In particular, this spatial planning incorporated low carbon/renewable energy activities in these plans.
