The Compact Program aims to support poverty reduction through economic growth. The aim is achieved through the implementation of the following three projects:
1. Green Prosperity Project
  • Increase productivity and reduce the dependency on fossil fuels by broadening the use of renewable energy alternatives.
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emission based on land management, by improving land use practices and natural resources management.
2. Community-Based Health and Nutrition to Reduce Stunting Project
  • Reduce through prevention efforts stunted growth and lack of nutrition in children.
  • Increase household income through reduction of spending, increase of productivity, and higher income opportunities.
3. Procurement Modernization Project
  • Increase efficiency government expenditure on procurement of goods and services, ensuring the availability of goods and services in a timely manner, and by providing public services as planned.
  • Through efficiency and savings, the government will gain more goods and services, in a better quality, that ultimately lead to positive economic growth impacts.

The three projects will eventually increase household income through productivity improvements, energy cost reduction, and better public services in procurement implementation.

The Compact Program also has several crosscutting activities. One of these activities is gender integration as an effort to overcome gender inequality in policy, institution, and capacity development, which often obstructs full participation of women in project activities and their ability to gain the full benefit of Compact activities.

MCA-Indonesia also implements a framework that is based on environmental and social regulations in Indonesia and international best practices. For example, the Environmental and Social Performance team has produced the Environment and Social and Social Management System (ESMS) Framework Tier 1, which ensures all actors anticipate and take action to avoid adverse impacts or risks to communities and the environment. The ESMS Framework Tier 1 applies to all activities of the Compact, while the upcoming ESMS Framework Tier 2 will define specific ESMS requirements and procedures for each of the MCA-Indonesia projects.

In addition, MCA-Indonesia puts monitoring and evaluation as a key component in all of its activities. A monitoring and evaluation plan is enforced as a management tool of MCA-Indonesia. The plan gives details about the impacts of the program and each of its components are expected to produce in economic, social, and gender areas and how these effects will be achieved. It also provides programmatic information and data for evidence-based decision making.
