- Policy PaperSustainable Funding for Independent Monitors in Indonesia
Independent Monitors still rely on donors support through cooperation commitment. As a short-term strategy, it is important to maintain funding support from donors. However, it should be understood that fundraising using such approach is yet to be able to guarantee the continuity of funding for independent monitors.
- Policy BriefSustainable Funding to Address Effective Monitoring Needs
In 13 years of implementation, TLAS is still progressing to improve its implementation. Implementation of transparency and independent monitors’ access to data should constantly be improved, while follow-up efforts should be immediately formulated to guarantee full participation and access to sustainable funding to support independent monitors’ role.
