Newsletter No. 3: February 1999

All indications are that the economic crisis in Indonesia, especially in the formal sector, will not be over in the near future. After a contraction in the economy of approximately 14% in 1998, predictions are that the Indonesian economy would either experience no growth or would continue to decline in 1999, at a rate of up to 3%. This makes it extremely important to ensure the good performance of the Social Safety Net (SSN) programs which are designed to help the poorest groups to meet basic needs in food, health, children’s education, and employment.

Labor Intensive & Community Fund Social Safety Net Programs

As part of the Government’s Social Safety Net strategy that has been put in place to provide assistance to those sections of society who have been worst affected by the economic crisis, a number of programs have been designed to provide emergency short term employment opportunities. These programs have been labelled Padat Karya or labor intensive programs.
