This study concluded that KOMPAK influenced the diversity of success or change. In other words, KOMPAK has succeeded in influencing positive change in four areas at various scales. The scope of the village information system and sectoral synergy are the two aspects that show the most visible changes, but both can work as a result of the support of other KOMPAK flagship activities, such as instruments and analysis of public financial management.
This study aims to assess the changes and processes of using the KOMPAK model in Tanah Papua that occurred in 2017-20211. The KOMPAK program has conducted a variety of interventions in Tanah Papua, such as policy development analysis, technical assistance, and capacity building for local actors, as well as piloting program implementation. This study was conducted to answer three main questions: (1) has the KOMPAK model achieved the expected goals and what is the potential for sustainability?; (2) what factors influence achievement?; (3) what lessons can be learned for the design of the next development program?
To achieve the objectives and answer the questions above, this study uses an outcome harvesting (OH) analytical framework that focuses on studying and assessing the changes (outcomes) produced by activities within the program. This analytical framework is suitable for complex programs and programs whose achievements are closely related to the achievements of programs/initiatives implemented by other stakeholders. In this study, the scope of changes studied covers four areas, namely village information systems, sectoral synergies, regulations/policies, and public participation. Data collection was carried out using a combination of quantitative (survey) and qualitative methods (in-depth interviews, observations, transects, and group discussions) and was complemented by program document analysis and a change mapping workshop with the KOMPAK implementation team.
The study was carried out in 60 village locations (quantitative) and 15 villages (qualitative) spread across five districts in the Provinces of Papua and West Papua. The selected districts in this study are Jayapura, Asmat, Nabire, Sorong, and South Manokwari. These five districts were selected based on the variety of KOMPAK programs and their achievements. The total number of respondents (survey) is 2,159 consisting of households, village heads, village cadres, and service units. While the total number of qualitative informants interviewed was 367 people consisting of actors directly intervened by KOMPAK such as village officials, service unit actors, village cadres, district, district and provincial governments, as well as households as beneficiaries.
