The Indonesian government's 2014 Village Law conferred substantial powers and resources on village-level authorities, as well as requiring them to allocate and manage Village Funds in a participatory way.
As part of its practitioner research, funded by Making All Voices Count, Pattiro has conducted online and offline discussions in seven villages which have highlighted challenges implementing the Village Law. These relate to a lack of synchronisation between different government regulations, which leads to problems and confusion in managing and reporting village funds.
The intention of the Ministry of Home Affairs to revise Regulation No. 113 of 2014 is expected to be a moment for synchronising the various regulations.
On January 10th, Pattiro is convening a public discussion on village finance management issues, which will be attended by senior government officials from the Ministries of Home Affairs and Finance, as well as the Comissioner of the Government Accounting Standards Committee. During the meeting, Pattiro and their partners will provide feedback from the research in order to feed into the process of revising of Regulation No. 113.
