How is corruption encouraged?

Corruption prevention and fight


The German-Indonesian cooperation focuses on the development and testing of innovative preventive measures at the sub-national level and in the forestry sector. To this end, digital instruments such as KPK's e-learning system, the Monitoring Center for Prevention (MCP) - a sub-national governance cockpit - as well as innovative digital applications for corruption prevention such as the JAGA and Integrity apps will be continued.

The target group is the entire population of Indonesia, with the focus on the inhabitants of the partner provinces Papua, West Papua and East Kalimantan. The mediators are the specialists and executives of the Indonesian Anti-Corruption Commission and the decentralized administrative areas.

The project focuses on three fields of action:

  • Strengthening the anti-corruption prevention department of the Commission in order to improve its efficiency, coordination skills and strategic orientation.
  • Strengthening the prevention of corruption in the governments of structurally weak provinces for the direct benefit of the (local) population.
  • Definition of selected and proven, yet innovative measures to prevent corruption in the forest sector (taking gender aspects into account) and anchoring these measures in national recommendations that make a direct contribution to improving corruption prevention at the sub-national level and provide greater social support cause.


The German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ) GmbH has been working with KPK in the field of corruption prevention since 2007. The current project builds on previous effects of this cooperation:

  • With the help of an anonymous, web-based KPK whistleblower system (, cases of corruption can be reported via the Internet. Every year around 2,000 reports are received by KPK via this system.
  • The Anticorruption Learning Center (ACLC) has certified more than 800 trainers from all over Indonesia in the field of anti-corruption.
  • In four partner provinces, action plans have been adopted with the local governments as part of the Responsible Task Force known as the Korsupgah Action Plan. This is intended to improve administrative activities, the digitization of government services and the planning processes. The implementation status in the previous partner provinces is 87.7 percent (status: March 2018). The concept is now used by the KPK in 542 districts and municipalities in all 34 provinces.
  • With the help of the Monitoring Center for Prevention (MCP), the KPK can monitor the progress of the Korsupgah Action Plan at the sub-national level.
  • The JAGA app provides a wide range of data on services that are provided in public schools and health centers in particular. In addition, data on the issuing of permits and village funds in several pilot regions are collected, merged and made available to the general public online in the app. JAGA currently contains information on 404,000 schools, 2,777 state hospitals, 10,051 health centers as well as 536 profiles of central contact points (one-stop service) and profiles of 48,000 villages.
