initiative

Reviewing progress made by 16 policy research institutes (PRIs) that have received support from the DFAT funded Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) in Indonesia

Project brief

The project aims to review progress made by the 16 Policy Research Institutes (PRIs) that have received support from the DFAT funded Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) in Indonesia. KSI has supported PRIs both individually and collectively during the two phases of the initiative in four main areas: research quality, networks and profile, policy engagement and financial sustainability. Working closely with SOLIDARITAS, we will clarify the key concepts and indicators in each of the four areas of interest, establish a baseline amongst the 16 PRIs, reconstruct (if necessary), KSI’s theory of change and theory of action, assess changes that have occurred (or not) during the initiative and draw lessons and make recommendations. We will put this into practice through a seven-stage process, which will take place between November and April. KSI’s investment in this will come in under its limit of AUD 99, 820.
