Our reflection this year also draws from an Independent Strategic Review (ISR) that was commissioned by DFAT in 2021, which thoroughly reviewed DFAT's “knowledge to policy” investments in Indonesia. The review asserts that PLJ has made notable success in contributing to evidence-based policy making, and in supporting increased gender equality, disability and social inclusion in Indonesia's knowledge sector.
Excerpt from DFAT's 2021 Independent Strategic Review Regarding Pulse Lab Jakarta Knowledge to Policy Investments in Indonesia
UN Global Pulse in Indonesia operates as Pulse Lab Jakarta, a joint data innovation facility of the United Nations and the Government of Indonesia (via the Ministry of National Development Planning). Functioning as an analytic partnerships accelerator, the Lab operates in the problem, solution and identity spaces where it applies mixed-methods research approaches.
As part of the UN Global Pulse network, the Lab works at the intersection of digital innovation and human sciences to inform, inspire, and strengthen the ability of the United Nations family and those it serves to anticipate, respond and adapt to the challenges of today and tomorrow.
UN Global Pulse in Indonesia is grateful for the generous support of the Australian Government.
