The Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Gender Equality and Woman Empowerment (MAMPU) Program is a joint initiative by the Government of Indonesia (GoI), represented by the National Planning and Development Agency (BAPPENAS), and the Government of Australia, represented by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). MAMPU Program goal is to improve the access of poor women in Indonesia to essential GoI’s services and programs in order to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment, and support the achievement the GoI’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) related to MAMPU program priorities. MAMPU Program focuses on improving GoI’s policies, regulations and services through partnership(s) between inclusive coalitions of civil society organizations and other institutions that are concerned with and committed to helping resolve gender issues in development.
MAMPU and MAMPU partners in thematic area-5 “Reducing Violence against Women”, have found relatively low government budget allocation for handling VAW issues. Moreover, there is a gap between the number of policies related to women’s rights and budgetary allocations to uphold the rights of women, especially for women victims of violence. Whereas, if it is not handled seriously, there will be a significant impact on communities and the state. A strategy to build public, government and parliament awareness about the significance of this issue is to provide evidence from a study that systematically attempts to quantify the costs of VAW. MAMPU is seeking to recruit a qualified consultant team to undertake this assignment, to generate a credible and defensible estimate of the costs of Violence against Women in Indonesia informed by widely accepted standards.
