Seminar | Putting multidimensional poverty indicators into the government’s radar: Leaving no one behind in 2045 Indonesia’s vision | Putu Natih

17/11/2023 @ 14:00 - 15:30

A few weeks ago, LPEM-FEBUI, an Indonesian leading economic research institute under the Department of Economics, University of Indonesia, launched a white paper – a compilation of 14 papers written by the younger generation of Indonesian economists –, a sobering and critical evaluation on the challenges and prospects of Indonesia in meeting its goal of reaching high-income country status by 2045 (Indonesia Emas 2045).

In this seminar, Putu Geniki Lavinia Natih will present her chapter contribution to that Paper. She will discuss her findings that, among others, despite significant consumption-based poverty reduction in Indonesia, other indicators of deprivations, especially assets ownerships and access to housing and sanitation, remain problematic. In addition, broadening the set of government’s targets in reducing deprivations is required to match the desired profile of Indonesia as an aspiring high-income country.


Putu Natih is a lecturer at the Department of Economics, Faculty of Economics and Business, Universitas Indonesia. She is also a remote researcher at the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), the University of Oxford. Before FEB UI, Putu was a researcher at OPHI, working on multidimensional poverty across different countries using large scale survey data, research assistant at the Blavatnik School working on digital inequality and was a statistics tutor at St John’s and Keble Colleges, Oxford. Putu was a Jardine-Oxford Scholar at Trinity College Oxford University, where she completed her DPhil and MPhil. Her research interests include multidimensional poverty, inequality, statistics and measurement.
