VNR 2017

Indonesia is highly commited to implement Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The substance and objective ofSDGs are in line with “Nawacita” (Indonesia’s national development vision), National Long Term Development Plan (RPJPN) 2005-2025 and the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2015-2019. The same commitment to jointly implement SDGs by all countries in the world is essential to eradicate poverty, promote shared prosperity and improve environmental quality. Issues of poverty, welfare, and environmental quality are common challenges to be faced globally as one planet. Therefore, one of the main necessary conditions to achieve SDGs is an enabling situation that should be created jointly: a global peace, security and stability.

Goals, targets, and indicators of SDGs that have been agreed are continuation and expansion of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were implemented in 2000-2015. Indonesia successfully achieved 49 out of 67 indicators of MDGs by the end of 2015. As the world’s largest archipeiagic country and the forth largest population, with vast cultural diversity and distinct geographical condition, Indonesia has succeeded in implementing almost all indicators of MDGs, as compared to many other countries in the Asia Pacific region. Indicators that have not yet been achieved in MDGs considered as an unfinished agenda that will be implemented in SDGs.

Heads of State and representatives of 193 countries have agreed upon the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at United Nations General Assembly in New York, September 2015. This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity and to strengthen universal peace. The Agenda is known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) consisting of 17 goals and 169 measurable targets.

SDGs has been aligned with “Nawacita” as Indonesia’s national development vision, which is integrated in development policies, strategies and programs of National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2015-2019, and translated into Government Work Plan (RKP) with its associated budget. The integration of SDGs into development plan is also implemented in subĀ­national level through preparation of Medium-Term Regional Development Plan (RPJMD) and Regional Work Plan (RKPD). The SDGs implementation is conducted by involving all stakeholders: government and parliament, philanthropy and business society, civil society organizations and media, as well as academics and experts to ensure achieving SDGs in line with the principles of inclusiveness and no one left behind. There are some documents prepared for SDGs implementation, among others: Presidential Decree as a legal basis, technical guidelines to develop action plan, metadata of SDGs’ indicators, communication strategy, and SDGs dissemination to all stakeholders, both at national and sub-national levels.

This 2017 Voluntary National Review report has followed technical guidelines provided in the United Nations Secretary-General’s report. The process to produce the report has applied inclusive, participatory and transparency principles by involving all stakeholders coordinated by Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) and supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
