Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)


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.

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.

A member of the United Nations since 1950, Indonesia today is also one of the top contributors of uniformed personnel to United Nations Peacekeeping operations. Indonesia also contributes to disaster relief efforts both regionally and globally. The Government of Indonesia has a vision to send 4,000 personnel on peacekeeping missions by 2019.




Partnerships with People
Partnerships with the Private Sector
The Sustainable Development Goals are getting done, because Indonesians are getting behind them. UN agencies have welcomed members of the public, including high-profile ambassadors to own and promote the goals through public events and social media.

Philanthropy Indonesia Association was born in 2003; it was initiated by individuals and nonprofit organizations who were involved in the Strengthening Philanthropy Initiative network in Indonesia. They agreed to continue and institutionalize their activities together in an association. Philanthropy Indonesia Association is an independent nonprofit organization, established to enhance the philanthropy activities in Indonesia, which aims to contribute to social justice and sustainable development programs. API was founded by individuals and nonprofit organizations, who since 2003 have taken steps to develop a network called Initiatives for Philanthropy Empowerment in Indonesia. They agreed to continue the work and put the activities into an organization for an independent and not-for-profit purpose. The association was established to accommodate interests from philanthropy stakeholders, from the donors, intermediary, or recipients of gifts; all done in a spirit of partnership, equality, plurality, justice, philanthropy universalism, and Indonesian identity. The notions behind the establishment of Filantropi Indonesia are:

  1. Respect, love and helping our fellow human beings have become the basic instinct of every human being as a social creature. All religious teachings also advise it. From the wealth of different cultures and ethnic groups in Indonesia, we also have learned that social generosity or philanthropy, has long been the glue that keep the elements of unity and harmony within a community;
  2. Some communities in Indonesia have achieved remarkable economic progress. But on the other side, social and economic gap between people and between communities are also getting bigger;
  3. The dismal portrait of social and environmental issues in Indonesia today requires philanthropy contribution that exists in each and every Indonesian, to be transformed into something more meaningful;
  4. The effort to develop the potential of philanthropy for sustainable development in Indonesia cannot be done by an individual, or by one or two groups or organizations alone. The challenges are too big. Institutional infrastructure and supportive policy are still lacking. Effective and focused efforts of all components of philanthropy in Indonesia are needed to put together, unify and strengthen the movement together with civil society to face the challenges of social development, humanity and environmental protection in the country.
