In the Republic of Indonesia, since the Decenralization Law was put into effect in 2001, edcational decentralization was also decentralized in order to enhance responsiveness to local needs. Moreover, school management has been enhanced to meet diverse needs of schools. In reality, however, local governments as well as schools still lack capability to analyze and solve their own problems by them selves.
Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has cooperated with the government of Indonesia since 1998 on developing models on participatory school-based management (PSBM) and Lesson Study (LS), and implementation of developed models at distric level.

Along with this, MONE has a policy to utilize and disseminate the models developed in the cooperation between MONE and JICA. Under this circumstance, the government of Indonesia has requested the government of Japan for a technical cooperation project to formulate functions to disseminate these models. In response to the above request, this technical cooperation program aims to institutionalize and disseminatePSBM and LS throughdeveloping functional structure at national and sub-national levels.
