UNDP Indonesia's mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.
SDGs in Indonesia
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the corresponding 17 goals that comprise the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a promissory note, negotiated and signed by 193 governments, written to people and the planet. Agenda 2030 seeks to eradicate poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, whilst strengthening universal peace and freedom, and improving the environmental outlook of the planet.
SDGs are universal in nature and have a wider scope than its predecessor, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Indonesia played an important role in shaping the post-2015 development agenda and the current list of SDGs. Moreover, the proposed goals and targets align well with the growth and development priorities of the Government of Indonesia (GoI) stated on the 2015-2019 RPJMN. The GoI is committed to pursue the implementation of the SDGs both at national and sub-national level. In July 2017, the GoI enacted the Presidential Decree No. 59 Year 2017 on the Implementation of the SDGs in Indonesia.

Gorontalo province embraced the adoption of SDGs agenda into their local development planning by officially institutionalizing SDGs stakeholders’ platform through endorsement of the Governor Decree No. 349/28/X/2017 on the Establishment of Inclusive SDGs Coordination Team at provincial level in October 2017; followed by the endorsement of the Governor Decree No. 379/28/XI/2017 on the Establishment of Provincial SDGs Secretariat in November 2017.

The workshop was warmly welcomed by all parties and had strengthened partnerships between UNDP and Gorontalo Province. Further, UNDP had several missions to Gorontalo to formally meet with Provincial and District/Municipality Chiefs and to conduct initial assessment of SDGs situation in Gorontalo.
