The JRF used a governance structure similar to that of the MDF. It was governed by a steering committee responsible for:
The steering committee also served as a forum for policy dialogue with the government on issues relating to reconstruction and development efforts.
- endorsing overall priorities
- endorsing project financing proposals
- reviewing fund progress
- ensuring coherence and collaboration with activities funded by the government’s action plan
- the results framework
Members of the Steering Committee included:
The Indonesian government representative co-chaired the steering committee, along with the European Commission, as the largest donor, and the World Bank.
- a representative from the National Coordinating Team, formed to coordinate and implement the reconstruction efforts in Yogyakarta and Central Java
- The contributing donors to the JRF
- The World Bank as trustee
The steering committee invited other participants from non-contributing bi-lateral and multilateral agencies, including the UN, civil society, and local and international non-governmental organizations, to join the steering committee as observers.
The day-to-day operations of the JRF were managed by a joint secretariat that also managed the MDF. Specific duties of the secretariat included monitoring and evaluating the JRF's portfolio, coordinating the JRF's activities and administering its funds.
