When mentioning the word, “security”, we often hear another word along with this word, i.e., “Area Development for Enhancing Security”, for example, Area Development for Enhancing Security along border, development for enhancing security in southern border provinces, and others, etc.

When most people see this word, they often have some questions on this word, for example, “Why must there be Area Development for Enhancing Security?” and the hardest question is “How can we know that this development is successful?”

Why must there be Area Development for Enhancing Security?

To make any society or area to be developed, people in such society or area must have good quality of life with good economy and happy society, especially security in life and assets.

When such society or area is safe, people in such society or area will be comfortable and ready to develop such society or area peacefully.

On the other hand, if such society or area has no security on life and assets, such society will become the society with high risks with problems. People in such society or area will live with anxiety and fear or suspicion. Consequently, it will be difficult for such society or area to be prosperous equally like society or area with normal situation. Therefore, it is necessary to develop area for enhancing security therefore such area or society can be led to normal development.

For example, if we want to develop areas along the border line or areas in southern border provinces with high risks and problem on security, it is required to use Area Development for Enhancing Security in order to make those areas have sufficient foundation on security for further development in other dimensions.

How can we know that this development is successful?

It is said in successful management sciences that “If we are unable to evaluate on what we did, we are unable to manage it.” Similarly, “Area Development for Enhancing Security”    must be able to be evaluated whether it is successful or not in order to make all related sectors to acknowledge whether such Area Development for Enhancing Security will be successful or not and how. Related agencies, including Secretariat of the National Security Council (SNSC) under participation of all related sectors, established the guidelines for indicating success of Area Development for Enhancing Security consisted of indicators and related details.

KPIs used fir indicating success in Area Development for Enhancing Security consist of 2 types including Joint KPI and Strategic KPI.

Joint KPI is an indicator reflecting that such area is able to be developed in other dimensions normally or security of such area is normal like general society.

Strategic KPI is an indicator reflecting success of strategies that will lead to reduction of problems or important conditions in such area and total KPI of Strategic KPI has high level of significance towards success of Joint KPI.

Case Study of KPI in Solving Problems in Southern Border Provinces

In the event of problem solving in southern border provinces, Joint KPI is the indicator reflecting that areas of southern border provinces are able to back to live normally, etc. Success level indicated by Joint KPI is compared as demanded picture obtained from connecting several small jigsaws.

These small jigsaws are compared as success that can indicate success by using Strategic KPI including efficiency of security in life and assets, the doing of justice and compensation for affected persons, building of understanding on human rights, education, potential development of area and quality of life of local people, efficiency of government sector and policy driving, and the way to seek for escape from conflicts through peaceful methods, etc.

To perform any activity or work, especially activity or work affecting to life and happiness of people, it is necessary to have KPI that can reflects whether such activity or work is successful to meet the goals and how. In addition, this KPI must reflect demanded picture and we call this kind of KPI as “Joint KPI” and “Strategic KPI” that is the beginning of success to lead to success of “Joint KPI” that is the ultimate outcome.
