*Terms of Reference*

1. *1. **Context Statement*

The governor of Papua province launched the RESPEK program (/Rencana  Strategis Pembangunan Kampung –/Strategic Planning of Village Development) in 2007. In 2008 RESPEK was merged with the national community empowerment program, PNPM Mandiri. RESPEK provides block grants of Rp100 million for all villages throughout Papua province and  PNPM Mandiri provides community development facilitators and field engineers to assist communities with the planning, design and implementation of development activities completed with the RESPEK grants.

Under this scheme, the provincial government of Papua allocates large proportion of its resources to village development. It is the government’s attempt to close the development gap between various communities within Papua in particular between Papuans and non-Papuans. Law Number 21 mandated the provincial government to fulfill the rights of Papuans through Special Autonomy status. This has been translated into respect, affirmation, protection and empowerment to become enable native Papuans define and address their own development needs.

The core principle of PNPM-RESPEK is community-driven development under the guidance and support of respective village authorities. Community members in every village throughout Papua are expected to be the drivers and owners of their own development by establishing community governance structures which promote transparent and accountable management of community resources. The PNPM-RESPEK program provides huge opportunity to communities to design and carry out their own development programs.

The PNPM-RESPEK village development approach enables communities to design and implement development programs at the village and sub-district levels. The strategy is in line with the governor’s vision and mission and the provincial government’s medium-term development plan (RPJMD 2006-2010). As a development approach, PNPM-RESPEK provides  simple mechanisms and procedures for communities and village authorities to develop good governance practices from the bottom-up.

To support the implementation of the PNPM-RESPEK program, the Papuan government is developing a public education program to improve communities’ knowledge of and participation in the program. In line with its mandate to facilitate successful implementation of RESPEK through the compilation and analysis of village development data, information and knowledge, the Papua Knowledge Center (PKC) has been appointed to design and implement the RESPEK public education project in coordination with the /Biro Pemerintahan Kampung Provinsi Papua/, the/ /Village Governance Bureau.
