26 May 2020
Right on Wednesday, May 20, 2020, Ngobrol Jakarta #17 returned to the
online platform to have a relaxed discussion with the citizens of DKI
Jakarta in discussing "Collaboration to Address the Socio-Economic
Impact of COVID-19". Of course, the topic of discussion this time is no
less interesting than the previous Ngobrol Jakarta. Moreover, we
discussed the new platform owned by the DKI Jakarta Provincial
Government on the corona.jakarta.go.id/id website, namely Large-scale
Social Collaboration (KSBB).
In this Ngobrol Jakarta #17, we have special guest speakers
who are directly involved in handling the social-economic impact of
COVID-19, namely, Dr. Sri Haryati, S. Pi, M.Si as the Economic and
Financial Assistant of the Regional Secretary of DKI Jakarta Province
and one of the aggregators of social collaborators in Jakarta namely,
Doni Marlan as Director of Dompet Dhuafa Resource Mobilization.
The discussion began with a presentation from Dr. Sri
Haryati how Jakarta is trying to get to town 4.0. In the form of city
2.0, the government only has a role to serve the community fully.
Whereas the form of city 3.0, residents play a role as participants and
the government as a facilitator.
This is different from the concept of city 4.0, where the
government and the community play a role as collaborators, so that the
collaboration between the two parties can be established strongly. This
is the concept of the city that is expected by DKI Jakarta. To
accelerate development and progress, we can no longer only hope in the
government. Thus, all forms of participation and collaboration from the
community to help the government are needed.
By upholding the value of collaboration, the DKI Jakarta Provincial
Government launched the Large-Scale Social Collaboration platform (KSBB)
as a tangible manifestation of social collaboration in this city. The
principle of the KSBB is from society to society. So, the community can
work together to send assistance to other vulnerable communities
affected by COVID-19 with an end-to-end process. Social collaboration
from the community is something that needs to be built together.
Especially in the middle of a pandemic period like this.
"It's time for us to give back to Jakarta, which has been giving us many things," said Dr. Sri Haryati
Besides that, Dr. Sri Haryati said that the poverty rate in
DKI Jakarta was the lowest in Indonesia. In fact, with the presence of
this pandemic, the amount of poverty in Jakarta is increasingly
vulnerable, because not all citizens have savings to survive. Dr. Sri
Haryati also added that the number of vulnerable people in DKI Jakarta
had reached 2.4 million. So, one of the efforts that we can do together
is hand in hand to help the people of DKI Jakarta who are in need.
"Do not let social restrictions even make us more distant
from each other. We need to approach each other with heart. The KSBB was
built with the concept of community for society, that is, by connecting
and helping each other "Dr. Sri Haryati.
The discussion then continued with the second guest
speaker, Doni Marlan, Director of Dompet Dhuafa Resource Mobilization.
Doni, who indeed involves directly to the field, tells how many people
are in a difficult condition to get staple food, masks, and other health
equipment. This is because many people are hoarding basic foodstuffs
and masks so that goods become scarce and expensive for the lower middle
class. Mr. Doni feels that the presence of the KSBB has helped many
aggregators. Especially when collaborators channel aid through
aggregators such as Dompet Dhuafa. Previously, there were some recipient
areas that were difficult to access by Dompet Dhuafa. But since there
is a KSBB program, Dompet Dhuafa has been able to reach those are.
"This is the era of collaboration. Of course, this is not
an easy condition for all of us. But if we go through it together, then
the collaboration that we do in this KSBB will definitely be very
helpful in handling COVID-19 "- Doni Marlan.
At the end of the session, all participants opened their video
cameras and took a picture together with the two speakers and moderator,
Nadia Atmaji from CoHive to capture this moment of discussion.
Smartcitizen, this is the time to act in #bantusesama the community
and the city of Jakarta. Let's start with the initiative and invite
other collaborators to participate in the KSBB program. Because of me,
you, and all of us, can bring goodness to the other people of Jakarta.
Ngobrol Jakarta is a discussion activity that is held once a
month with themes related to issues in DKI Jakarta. This discussion
activity was carried out at JSCHive by CoHive in collaboration with
Jakarta Smart City (JSC). Ngobrol Jakarta is an interesting discussion
activity because it always involves various speakers from Regional
Apparatus Organizations (OPD), startups, Non-Governmental Organizations
(NGOs), and other community groups. Ngobrol Jakarta is an informative
discussion room for discussing various problems in Jakarta and trying to
find a solution
