The North Maluku Recovery Programme
This programme of post-conflict recovery in North Maluku and Maluku is part of a wider UNDP effort to support post-conflict recovery and conflict prevention programmes in Indonesia. The wider programme framework for all the conflict-prone and post-conflict areas is required for several reasons. First, the Government of Indonesia and donors are encouraging UNDP programmatic engagement, particularly in these two provinces. Second, by working in the different contexts and situations prevailing in the country, UNDP can be better positioned to support the country with recovery initiatives as opportunities emerge, from the very earliest stages of recovery on through the point where conflict prevention and longer term development initiatives can be supported. The type and scale of programmatic engagements in these various areas must, of course, be carefully gauged to the conditions that prevail and the opportunities that exist for supporting recovery programmes.
