Reported progress

2017:

Nutrition specific = IDR 1,540,671,091,000

Nutrition sensitive = IDR 11,006,534,898,000

Technical support/coordination = IDR 1,170,660,147,000

2018:

Nutrition specific = IDR 2,258,145,107,000

Nutrition sensitive = IDR 20,475,672,301,350

Technical support/coordination = IDR 1,406,967,077,980

2019:

Nutrition specific = IDR 3,656,222,103,000

Nutrition sensitive = IDR 24,293,677,434,656

Technical support/coordination = IDR 1,055,864,337,000

2020:

Nutrition specific = IDR 1,790,527,112,000

Nutrition sensitive = IDR 24,921,083,927,000

Technical support/coordination = IDR 814,448,849,000

Budget allocations for specific interventions and technical support/coordination in 2019 to 2020 decreased due to specific analysis (enable to calculate the allocation to sub-output/sub-component of the programmes) up to detailed component of the programmes which have direct impact for stunting reduction. Thus, the component of the programmes which have no direct impact for stunting reduction was dropped from the tagging and tracking system.

Impact commitments
London 2013 Reduce stunting prevalence from 35.6% (2010) to 32% (2015) and further reduction 40% by 2025.
Reported progress

Stunting prevalence among children under 5:

2013 = 37.2%

2018 = 30.8%

2019 = 27.7%

Assessment
Off course
Basis of assessment

Assuming a linear rate of reduction, the stunting prevalence in 2019 (27.7%) is greater than the required prevalence by this stage (25.8%) to remain on course with the target of a further 40% reduction by 2025.

Policy commitments
London 2013 Stakeholders at provincial and district levels will prioritize well-conceived nutrition efforts in their development plans and budgets.
Reported progress

The provincial and district levels are mandated to prioritise the nutrition efforts in their development plans and budgets through their Sub-national Medium Term Development Plan, Sub-national Annual Workplan and Sub-National Action Plan on Food and Nutrition, which align with the national documents (2015-2019) (including the indicators, targets, and budgets).

Since 2017, the Government of Indonesia (GoI) has initiated integrated nutrition intervention specifically for stunting reduction, which also mandated the provincial and district levels to secure their plans and budgets to achieve the national targets. Moreover, the National Medium Term Development Plan 2020-2024, stunting reduction becomes the one of major projects in the national priority that also mandate the provincial and district levels to prioritise their nutrition efforts.

In addition, this commitment was also strengthened by selecting the priority locations for stunting reduction since 2018 (100 districts) and gradually selected until 2024 (covered all districts/514 districts). The district government also has been mandated to implement the 8 integrated actions for stunting reduction through: (1) analysis of district situation; (2) developing the plan of action; (3) conducting high-level meetings; (4) developing official regulation; (5) capacity building for cadres; (6) the data management system; (7) data publication; and (8) annual performance review.

Program commitments
London 2013 Reinforce the implementation of specific evidence-based nutrition interventions including promotion of maternal and IYCF, improvement of micronutrient intake through supplementation and food fortification, and management of severe acute malnutrition.
Reported progress

Includes the specific evidence-based nutrition interventions in the logical framework for stunting reduction. Moreover, the indicators and targets for interventions will be also included in the draft of the Presidential Decree on the Acceleration of Stunting Reduction, which it is estimated will be launched this year.

Currently, as part of our efforts to reduce stunting, Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) Counselling and Integrated Management of Acute Malnutrition (IMAM) Programmes are being scaled up to stunting priority districts. Food fortification and micronutrient supplementation are also our national priorities programme.

Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted nutrition services. The government continues to put their effort into maintaining the continuity of nutrition services. The pandemic has also make changes in the policy of mandatory fortification for wheat flour and edible oil.
