Knowledge Sector Initiative

The Knowledge Sector Initiative or KSI is a joint commitment between the governments of Indonesia and Australia that seeks to improve the lives of the Indonesian people through the implementation of better quality public policies that make better use of research, analysis and evidence. KSI seeks to achieve this by supporting the capacity building of policy research institutes, improve the quality of their research to meet policy maker’s needs, improve systems and regulations in government to support research-based policy making, and to develop effective models for procuring and using research to strengthen policies that will benefit the country’s poor. The program will also be working with various organisations involved in making research-based evidence accessible to policy makers and used by civil society organisations, advocacy networks and the media.
