  • Organisation

    Founded in 2007, Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Indonesia is part of global movement that promotes transparency and accountability of extractive sectors such as oil, gas, mining and forestry. PWYP Indonesia is dedicated to promoting good governance in the extractive sector through collaborative approaches and evidence based solution. PWYP does this by building awareness and capacity of stakeholders, facilitating collaboration through multi-stakeholder partnerships, and creating a network of coalitions with other organisations working on cross-cutting issues (for example anti-corruption, indigenous group, public budgeting, women and children, etc.).

    With such vision, in 2009 for example PWYP facilitated development of a transparency mechanism accommodating all stakeholders in the extractive industry, endorsed by the Indonesian government. PWYP capitalises on the successful work at national level, by implementing innovative approaches at sub-national level to promote accountability of the sector. For instance,  in 2014 PWYP trained and assisted on the use of drone and open data to indigenous groups in West Kalimantan to help them holding the government and mining industry to account as well as advocate for recognition of the customary forest.

    The multi-stakeholder approach proved the highlight of PWYP’s work in supporting the Anti-Corruption Commission. Since 2014 they have been working on closing the loophole along the entire value chain in the mining sector in all provinces in Indonesia. PWYP engages and assists local government to curb the problematic mining permit system. They also create and coordinate civil society organisation’s findings resulting from an intense monitoring of the mining industry. This effort has increased national revenue and revoked hundreds of problematic mining permits, also created better governance in the sector.

    PWYP centres their programmes on people and their coalition members and target groups. They develop and open their project (and budget) with the coalition members and target group. PWYP promotes multi-stakeholder-led programming, where every voice is heard, concern addressed, and contribution valued. They make sure that coalition members and target groups are aware that they  do not have every answer, but partnership might have it. Each project is co-lead with the coalition members and target group. Some are even co-funded by the coalition members and target group at least in-kind. They ensure that every programme optimally empowers the coalition members and target group to become development expert for their own group and region.

    • Project

      The project Resource Rights for Sedulur Sikep aims to ensure the fulfilment of the rights of indigenous people of Sedulur Sikep over access to productive resources including land, water and other natural resources. They do this by wanting to preserve the North Kendeng Mountains as the source of the community’s livelihood through policy advocacy. This approach is particularly important, given that influencing the policy agenda will contribute in setting the foundation of community advocacy for years to come. Also, considering that the expansion of mining and cement industries today is legalised under numerous policies, particularly at the provincial level. For instance, the spatial plans policy and also regionalmid-term development plan which favours the mining industry.

      This project emphasises a collaborative approach, involving the indigenous peoples particularly women to monitor the local policy making process which is potentially threatening the sust mountains’ sustainability. Community participation is facilitated by the establishment of Multi Stakeholder Fora (MSF), consisting of central and local government, the community, academics, civil society and other stakeholders. In parallel, PWYP Indonesia also facilitate the capacity building for indigenous communities in policy advocacy through the MSF and campaigns on preserving the nature and sustainability of the mountains by using inclusive technology or local wisdom upheld by the indigenous people.

      By doing so, the project is expected to facilitate the development and implementation of policies which support the preservation of the mountains through local wisdom and sustainable development principles. Besides, it also contributes to empower indigenous people, particularly women, in voicing and advocating their causes to defend and preserve the mountains using a  more comprehensive policy advocacy approach.
