This report is the final output of the Building a Blueprint for Change research project, led by Humanitarian Advisory Group and Pujiono Centre. It examines the conditions and drivers of humanitarian reform in Indonesia. The study was designed to apply a new approach to reform efforts, one which is built entirely around the local priorities and contextual factors of one country rather than an attempt to adapt international agendas.

The study focused on Indonesia because it was identified as the country with the most momentum for change in the Asia Pacific region. Indonesia has been recognised for its leadership in nationalising and localising humanitarian response and has served as a prime candidate to explore opportunities for a localised approach to humanitarian reform.
