SMERU aims to support researchers, students, policymakers, and practitioners with useful and helpful data and information for their work. The following resources are available to the public.
SMERU manages Indonesia's most comprehensive online database of national and regional non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Currently, there are almost 3,000 NGOs in our database, which provides information on each NGO's name, address, contact person, vision, mission, legal form, activities, and sector. It is an invaluable resource that facilitates other institutions to contact and communicate with various NGOs all over the country, as well as those conducting research on NGOs in Indonesia. Please contact our NGO Partnership Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like your organization to be included in this database.
The Poverty and Livelihood Map of Indonesia details the poverty estimates and livelihood conditions of 33 provinces, 497 districts and cities, 6,654 subdistricts, and 76,125 villages in 2010/2011. This free and publically acccessible tool is invaluable for poverty reduction and social assistance programs, particularly for geographical targeting at the subdistrict or village level. It can also be used to determine the type of assistance needed in particular areas, or as a baseline for program evaluation.
SMERU manages an internal library, which contains almost 7,000 books and eBooks. These materials cover various subjects, including poverty, economy, development, education, and statistical data. Although it is not a public library, you can make an appointment with our librarian in advance to visit our library and make use of our collection.
