The Ruang Desa app should significantly close the information gap between the central government and villages on using village funds to address local priorities.

Expanding Our Impact

Indonesia – which consists of more than 17,000 islands – has the world’s largest Muslim population, the largest economy in Southeast Asia and hundreds of local languages.

Abt Associates-led projects in Indonesia are improving the responsiveness and effectiveness of government – especially at the village level – by defining village boundaries to open the door for more economic investment. We also are working to increase access to clean energy and assisting in the country’s effort to achieve universal health coverage.

In 2017 Abt Associates helped launch a smartphone app to help village administrators do their jobs. Under a new decentralization movement, approximately 21,000 facilitators are available via the app to mentor village governments nationwide.
