The “target community” is the community in which this program will focus its activities.  The local community’s participation will be sought in the identification of particular clean energy challenges as well as solutions. The screening of target communities is among the first activities of this program.  Potential target communities will be reviewed according to a set of criteria presented in this document.  The selection of a target community will be based on the review of evidence within this framework.

Indonesia consists of 33 provinces located across 5 major islands (Sumatera, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Papua) and thousands of small islands. These guidelines describe procedures for selecting target communities for implementing pro-poor clean energy demand-driven innovation.


General Criteria for Location Selection:

The suggested locations are screened and selected based on several criteria and considerations, some of these are:

  1. Stability and safety in the Target Communities
  2. Geography and Accessibility
  3. Population
  4. Income Level
  5. Educational Status

Selected 2012 Location:

A target location was selected that meets the requirements of the Subprogram while ensuring maximized impact on energy access for the target community. 10 possible locations within Indonesia were screened and considered, but in the end, the Special Region of Yogyakarta and the rural areas of Kulon Progo, Sleman, Bantul and Gunung Kidul were chosen for the pilot implementation. These areas surrounding Yogyakarta in Central Java are suitable for the Subprogram implementation and the city of Yogyakarta offers a good base location with convenient access to the rural communities, a vibrant university student community as well as a developed infrastructure with a metropolitan area housing almost 3 million Indonesians.
