The policy of distributing social assistance is the Indonesian Government's strategy to reduce the socioeconomic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the poor and vulnerable. However, at the empirical level, although the social assistance programs benefit the community, their implementation during the pandemic still faces various challenges, especially regarding the accuracy of the targeting and the timeliness of the distribution. The updating of the Integrated Social Welfare Data (DTKS) is an important and relevant policy discourse to reduce the obstacles to distributing social assistance programs during and after the pandemic. On that basis, The SMERU Research Institute will hold a policy dialogue on the implementation of social assistance programs during the COVID-19 pandemic and the urgency to update DTKS.
