Show close time for other time zones
DFAT has supported rural development in Indonesia for decades, particularly in eastern Indonesia. Most recently, the Governments of Australia (GoA) and Indonesia (GoI) have been implementing the Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Rural Economic Development (AIP-Rural) program to address the most significant constraints to rural income growth. This investment was designed as a 10 year program in two five-year phases.
AIP-Rural’s goal (Nov 2013 – Dec 2018) is to contribute to a 30%, or more, increase in net incomes for 300,000 smallholder farming households in five provinces in eastern Indonesia (East Java, Nusa Tenggara Timur (NTT), Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB), Papua, West Papua).
With the first phase coming to an end, DFAT has provided a design update for the second five-year phase, called the Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Promoting Rural Incomes through Support for Markets in Agriculture (PRISMA-2).
PRISMA-2 builds on the achievements and results of AIP-Rural and continues the same market systems development approach in order to scale up to reach an additional 700,000 smallholder farming households with a minimum net income increase of 30%. By the end of the 10-year investment, AIP-Rural and PRISMA-2 will have benefitted a total 1,000,000 smallholder farming households. PRISMA-2 also incorporates some refinements, efficiencies, and new elements, building on the lessons learned from the first phase.
