The number of asylum-seekers registering in Indonesia has fallen from around 100 a day to 100 a week in recent months, according the UNHCR representative in Jakarta as quoted by AAP.
This is surely a good thing. But there are still 10,000 asylum seekers and refugees in Indonesia, many of whom are presumably staying put until they get resettled somewhere.

The international workshop held in Indonesia on the safety of asylum seekers at sea seems not to have discussed Australia's turn-back policy. The UNHCR dude noted outside the workshop that Australia had not replied to a request for further information, but the Indonesian authorities were noticeably mum on the issue.
Presumably, the radical decline in the number of persons transitting to Indonesia has inclined them to be little less vocal.
Also no more orange life-boats for a while. One can only assume that the people smugglers have had something of a business collapse.
