For the People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership: United Nations Boost its Cooperation with Indonesia
22 September 2022
Inspired by the pattern of the Ulap Doyo Kalimantan woven cloth, the design of the annual UN-Indonesian report illustrates the closeness and synergy between UN agencies, the Government of Indonesia, and the general public
Jakarta, 22 September 2022 – The United Nations (UN) team in Indonesia stands in solidarity with the people and the Government of Indonesia in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021. The UN worked with the Government to bring 87 million vaccination doses to the country through the international COVAX mechanism, trained more than 180,000 Indonesian health workers, and formed a dedicated taskforce to coordinate responses to oxygen scarcity issues at the height of the pandemic.
These are just three of thousands of UN and Indonesian Government results and interventions detailed in the UN in Indonesia Country Results Report 2021 which is now available in a more optimized format for online use (https://arr.un.or.id/).
This report – initially launched in June 2022 – shows that throughout 2021, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Indonesia and the United Nations have remained true to the Sustainable Development Goals—a roadmap to a better, fairer, more sustainable future for all.
The UN Resident Coordinator in Indonesia, Valerie Julliand, said the results report is a testament to the way the UN and the Government came together to navigate those challenges. “Now, we must redouble our efforts if we are to remain true to our promise to leave no one behind and achieve the SDGs by 2030,” Julliand said. “This report serves as a record of our extraordinary achievements in 2021. I trust that it will also galvanize us for the tough road ahead.”
