- Poverty reduction policies in Indonesia are primarily informed by periodic cross-section household survey data that provide estimates of static poverty rates. The focus of these policies appears to be chronic or long-term poverty. While estimates of poverty at specific points in time might correlate with chronic poverty to some extent, such estimates are more representative of poverty that is transient in nature. However, the characteristics of transient poverty is a relatively under-explored area of research. If the determinants of transient and chronic poverty are quite different, then different policy measures would be required to address these two aspects of poverty. An understanding of common characteristics, on the other hand, could point to poverty reduction strategies that apply to both poverty types. This paper point to neglected focus on transient poverty, need for a new poverty eradication strategy, and strategic programs and activities should be covered.
