  • Capacity development re-examined through the lens of Indonesia’s learning experiences with international donors

    Shmoda, Y

    Development Policy Review   37   750 - 768  2019  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Capacity Development (CD) is a long‐term endogenous process. Despite an abundant literature, CD and the length of time required for its realisation are still abstract in practice. The examination of the process of fostering CD contributes to understanding the time required and the role of external actors, such as international donors, in supporting CD. This article aims to reveal part of the process of fostering CD and
    the time required, and to consider the role of international donors. This qualitative study focuses on Wakatobi district in Southeast Sulawesi province, Indonesia. The data reveal how bottom‐up local development approaches have developed through national and external donor programmes and
    projects. This study confirms the long endogenous learning process that CD involves. The case of Wakatobi district shows the continual efforts to institutionalize and functionalize bottom‐up local development. The acquired knowledge and skills have gradually developed the core capacities
    of Wakatobi, with beneficial effects on other districts and society more broadly. The fostering of CD, which resists social transformation, will take longer than donors expect. Continual learning is key and constant for the growth of CD. Donors should consider the provision of training, which makes continual, endless learning possible.

  • Economic accounting of Ethiopian forests: A natural capital approach

    Narita, D, Lemenih, M, Shimoda, Y, Ayana, A.N

    Forest Policy and Economics   97   189 - 200  2018  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Ethiopia has experienced a long-term deforestation with broad implications for human life and economic activities, but conventional frameworks of economic accounting are not able to assess the country's economic and environmental sustainability in the face of such deforestation problem. In this study, we attempt an economic accounting of Ethiopian forests based on a welfare-economic framework, which assesses changes in the value of forests as natural capital. Our estimates suggest that the recent government re-greening efforts are yet to increase forest assets in the value term, although they have expanded the land areas covered by trees in the country.

  • Toward a comprehensive accounting of forest values in Ethiopia

    Narita, D, Lemenih, M, Shimoda, Y, Ayana, A.N

    JICA-RI Working Paper   140   1 - 51  2017  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Ethiopia has experienced a long-term problem with deforestation. Despite the broad implications of
    such deforestation, or more generally of forests, on human life and economic activities, the
    accounting of a diverse range of forest values in Ethiopia is still in its infancy. This study aims to set
    a scope for such a comprehensive accounting of forest values in Ethiopia. Along with an overview of
    both quantitative and qualitative studies on forest values in Ethiopia, we conduct our own tentative
    estimation of Ethiopian forest values. Unlike the previous attempts at Ethiopian forest accounting,
    which are built on a direct extension of the SNA (System of National Accounts) framework, our
    estimation is based on a welfare-economic framework to evaluate changes in the value of forests as
    natural capital.

  • Talk, trust and information flow: work relationships between Japanese expatriate and host national employees in Indonesia

    Yukimi Shimoda

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT   24 ( 20 ) 3853 - 3871  2013.11  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This paper broadens the understanding of work relationships between expatriate and host national employees in transnational organisations/corporations, who have tended to be investigated separately. By exploring interpersonal interactions between expatriate and host national employees, this paper highlights the importance of their relationships in the implementation of organisational activities. With a focus on both Japanese expatriate and host national employees in a Japanese organisation in Indonesia, this ethnographic study examines the ways in which they worked in unfamiliar circumstances, managed differences and provided essential support for each other. Their transnational connections, characterised by what Granovetter calls the strength of weak ties', function to diffuse information and knowledge effectively. I argue the significance of talk', particularly small talk, as an initial action that supports such information flow and builds trust. This paper attempts to demonstrate the vital roles of expatriate and host national employees as mediators, by using network analysis as a framework. Finally, I conclude that both expatriate and host national employees, the latter often seen merely as backseat players, are in fact keys to the successful activities of transnational organisations/corporations.

     View Summary

    The analysis of the collected data demonstrates several things, although they are provisional. For example, 1) new networks and trust relationships have been formed among producers by participating in business activities, 2) participation in business activities has been able to empower women, 3) the work-life balance of female producers has influenced participation in business activities and may also affect the sustainability of the business itself. I have been presented these provisional findings in various occasions, such as conferences within and outside Japan, academic study groups, in-house seminars from time to time, through which I have disseminated information and sought opinions from experts. I am currently working on papers, aiming to publish them in international journals

  • 社会起業家はどう誕生するか:起業と社会課題の接点を探る

    2018  

     View Summary

    This study aimed to obtain suggestions for the process of the formation of social entrepreneurship by investigating and analyzing the motivations and business activities of social entrepreneurs. With a particular focus on Japanese social entrepreneurs/ supporters of entrepreneurs who directly and indirectly worked in the area of international development, it looked at various cases in Japan, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. This study revealed: entrepreneurs were motivated by having opportunities for directly observing social issues that their target societies faced; and goods and services that they provided were merely means for solving such issues. This research also made it possible to collect valuable data, which could lead to the development of future research. The findings of this study will be presented in academic conferences and/or published in academic journals after further analysis of the collected data.
