Employment diagnostic analysis: Maluku, Indonesia

Employment Working Paper No. 98

Following a request for cooperation in the field of provincial level employment analysis and employment planning from the BAPPENAS (National Planning Board of Indonesia) and an agreement with the Provincial Government in Maluku, an extensive
employment diagnostic analysis was carried out. This exercise comprised two phases. The first phase consisted of a thorough situation analysis of patterns and dynamics of employment and economic development. The second phase involved a systematic analysis
of the causes behind the insufficient growth of productive employment and an identification of the factors constraining the translation of growth into productive employment creation
and welfare and poverty reduction. Whereas, the first phase of the analysis was carried out through a comprehensive mainly quantitative desk research, the second phase of the
analysis engaged the ILO social partners in Maluku who provided their input into the analysis in an employment diagnostic workshop. The methodology is presented in the next
section in greater detail.
