How the UN is supporting The Sustainable Development Goals in Indonesia

The United Nations organizations have formed a partnership with the Government and people of Indonesia to support national efforts to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), save lives in times of disaster, and rise to the challenges of people-centred development in a rapidly growing middle-income country. All 23 agencies in the UN in Indonesia Family has committed to achieving these goals, with their own expertise and mandates.

The Sustainable Development Goals in Indonesia

Indonesia is a country on the move. In the last decade it has made important progress towards the targets of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It has graduated to Middle Income Country status and joined the fold of the G20 major advanced and emerging economies. Indonesia is the largest country in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN). To ensure UN’s presence in Indonesia is most effective, we are partnering with both the Government and private sector to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals together. Building and harnessing partnerships for the Sustainable Development Goals is a one in itself: Goal 17. An integrated approach is crucial for progress across the multiple goals.
