Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)
President Joko Widodo has established a strong commitment towards nutrition, especially stunting, as reflected in the central Government making the issue a major project in its National Medium-term Development Plan 2020–2024. In 2021, the Government strengthened its nutrition improvement efforts by launching Presidential Decree No. 72/2021 on the acceleration of stunting reduction, which urges subnational governments to actively participate in efforts to reduce stunting.
The Government developed and aligned nutrition-related country priorities in its National Strategy for Accelerating Stunting Prevention (2018), National Medium-term Development Plan 2020–2024 and in Presidential Decree No. 72/2021 on the acceleration of stunting reduction.
The Government collaborates with non-governmental institutions through the MSP, one benefit of which being that it receives technical assistance from development partners, civil society organizations and academia (nutrition experts) to strengthen the capacity of policymakers. Following Presidential Decree No. 72/2021, SUN networks have committed to making the capacity-building of subnational governments a priority in 2022 to ensure that beneficiaries receive nutrition interventions.
Stunting is one of the country’s main projects and thus requires the Government to mobilize resources to accelerate a reduction in stunting. The Government has consistently allocated budgets for nutrition interventions over the past few years and will continue its financial commitment to 2024. However, at the subnational level, the regulation is more flexible, with budgets for nutrition interventions often reallocated to address COVID-19. In terms of other SUN networks, resources are allocated but commitments vary. Although the Government’s monitoring and evaluation system has already been established (and uses budget tagging and tracking), the non-governmental system is still in progress.
2021 shared country good practice
Government accountability: tagging and tracking
Budget tagging and tracking
In 2019, the Government began implementing a budget tagging and tracking system to monitor and evaluate nutrition interventions. The system allows the Government to determine how much is spent versus how much is allocated, target beneficiaries and their locations and the stakeholders involved.
