Open, transparent and inclusive budgeting in Indonesia

Applying open government principles to the budget process is an important component of instituting open, transparent and inclusive government. The OECD has developed principles for budgetary governance and has highlighted best practices for budget transparency. This chapter assesses public financial management in Indonesia against these principles and standards, starting with an outline of principles, followed by an overview of the situation in Indonesia. This chapter covers budget transparency, public participation in budgeting and good practices in Indonesia; it also surveys gender budgeting in Indonesia and assesses linkages between women’s participation in budgeting and environmental sustainability. The recommendations point to approaches and actions that could provide for sound public financial management, strengthening budget transparency and inclusiveness in Indonesia.
