Evaluation of the IDF 2019

The Indonesia Development Forum (IDF) is a platform for development practitioners in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to meet and exchange ideas. IDF has been convened annually by Bappenas since 2017 with support from the Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI). The third IDF was launched on 29 January 2019 and was conducted on 22 – 23 July 2019 in Jakarta. The theme was Mission Possible: Seizing the Opportunities of Future Work to Drive Inclusive Growth. This report presents findings of the evaluation activities that include a process evaluation (during the conference 22-23 July 2019) and verification of the outcomes after the conference (November 2019-April 2020). It is based on review of documents, observation at the IDF, interviews both at the IDF and in the six months following, as well as case studies in five key thematic areas, notably, Gender Equity and Inclusion, the role of Policy Research Institutes, Introducing other forms of knowledge, IDF policy influence, and the role of the private sector.
