Who We Are


Indonesia’s population of 250 million people live amid 17,508 islands. The diverse country, in the world’s largest archipelago, is home to hundreds of distinct ethnic groups, as well hundreds of languages.

The country has experienced significant economic growth in the last decade, and its middle class continues to expand. Indonesia is now categorized as lower middle-income, and between 2009 and 2013 annual GDP growth was 5.8 percent. With a rising middle class expected to reach 135 million people by 2020, the country is challenged with widening inequality.

Indonesia has committed to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 17 goals set to end poverty by 2030. However immense work is required before these targets are met. Climate change and deforestation remain pivotal issues, and maternal mortality rates are extremely high in some parts of the country. HIV rates are increasing, and food security is still a concern.

Indonesia officially became the 60th member of the United Nations on 28 September 1950. Since then the United Nations has been working in partnership with the Government to enhance development, strengthen democracy and work towards ending extreme poverty by 2030
