Indonesia is set to present three successful strategies for eradicating extreme poverty at the upcoming Ministerial-Level Meeting of the Task Force during the G20 Forum in Brazil on July 24, 2024. These strategies will be proposed within the framework of The Global Alliance Against Hunger and Poverty (GAAHP).

Nunung Nuryartono, Deputy for Social Welfare Improvement Coordination at the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Cultural Affairs (Kemenko PMK), highlighted the three key practices: convergence and complementarity systems for poverty eradication programs, targeting systems using the Targeting for the Acceleration of Elimination of Extreme Poverty (P3KE) data, and insights from the Family Hope Program (PKH) and Government Food Reserve (CPP) assistance.

“Each country will promote their anti-poverty programs as references for others. Indonesia’s proposals include PKH, CPP assistance, P3KE optimization, food insecurity assistance, and nutritional and food alertness support,” Nunung said on Tuesday, June 4, 2024.

These proposals are grounded in Indonesia’s notable progress in combating extreme poverty. Nunung pointed out that Indonesia, as a developing nation, has achieved significant milestones, with a consistent downward trend in extreme poverty rates.

“Indonesia is on the right track, showing a promising trend in reducing extreme poverty year by year,” she said.

By showcasing Indonesia’s achievements at the global alliance forum, the country aims to attract other nations to learn from its experiences. The GAAHP, initiated under Brazil’s presidency following Indonesia and India’s presidencies, seeks to support and accelerate efforts to eradicate hunger and extreme poverty, aligning with the first two Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Furthermore, the forum aims to reduce inequality, in line with the 10th SDG. Representing Indonesia as the Chair of the Hunger and Poverty Working Group under the Sherpa Track of the G20 Brazil Presidency 2024, the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Cultural Affairs attended the third meeting of the GAAHP Task Force in Teresina, Brazil, from May 22-24, 2024.

Indonesia has actively supported the formation of the GAAHP, contributing to the drafting of membership rules outlined in the statement of commitment, the organizational structure in the terms of reference and framework document, and the overarching agreement in the inception document.
