March 27, 2015: Increasing Access to Legal Identity to Improve the Wellbeing of Women and Children in Indonesia
On March 27, 2015, the CPC Network hosted a webinar featuring Santi Kusumanigrum, co-director of CPC affiliate PUSKAPA, the Center for Child Protection at the University of Indonesia. Santi shared findings from a recent baseline study on access to legal identity documentation for women and children. In partnership with the Australia-Indonesia Partnership for Justice program, PUSKAPA has been supporting the Government of Indonesia to better understand barriers to accessing birth and marriage certificates, and to pilot interventions to increase access in underserved areas.
