Description & Progress


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) shapes the successive National Development Plans (RJPMN). Over a hundred of the 118 SDG targets most relevant to the Indonesian context have been incorporated into the RPJMN 2019-2024. Sub-national governments are also mainstreaming SDGs into their Mid-Term Regional Development Plans (RPJMD).

Two VNRs have so far been presented at the HLPF and the BAPPENAS produced ‘Roadmap of SDGs Indonesia’ that serves as the pathfinder document for operationalizing each SDG. The “Roadmap of SDGs Indonesia” contains policy positions for delivering on 60 selected targets as well as ‘business as usual’ and ‘intervention scenarios’.

Youth are not just beneficiaries of this process – they are essential actors in achieving these Goals. The GOI developed the report on SDGs Baseline on adolescent and youth in 2018.

In order to monitor the implementation of SDGs in respect of adolescent and youth as the subjects, BAPPENAS with support of UNFPA is planning to update the data on SDGs indicators related to adolescent and youth in 2020 to contribute to forthcoming (i) Voluntary National Reviews (VNR); (ii) National Strategy on Youth Development (lead by BAPPENAS; and (iii) national strategy on adolescent health (lead by the Coordinating Ministry of Human Development and Culture and Ministry of Health).

This consultancy will provide high quality statistical information also designed to support informed debate on policies and programmes related to the development of Indonesia’s youth and information will further help to assess progress with respect to SDGs and Programme of Action on International Conference on Population and Development (ICPDPoA).



To support the Bappenas in developing a report on the progress of the SDGs Implementation among Adolescent and Youth in Indonesia.

The aim of the consultancy is to present an authoritative yet reader-friendly description of contemporary data relating to Indonesia’s youth across SDG indicators and how it has been changing over time. In format, this document will consist of descriptive text integrated with summary indicators, tables and charts in way that is relevant to SDG indicators and issues of public policy concern. Explanatory notes describing the meaning of statistical constructs used in the analysis should also be provided to ensure the reader fully comprehends the information being provided.

The specific objectives are as follows:

  1. To update the data of selected SDGs indicators, which are reflected in the report on SDGs baseline on adolescent and youth in 2018. Those indicators were agreed by Bappenas and BPS as the indicators that are related with adolescent and youth issues in Indonesia. The definitions and data sources of those selected SDGs indicators (please see annex 2 for list of selected indicators) are stated in the national SDGs metadata, which was endorsed by the Government of Indonesia (Presidential Decree number 59, Year 2017 on SDGs)
  2. To develop updated profiles for selected SDGs targets highlighting most significant disparities by geographical locations, poverty status, age groups, and gender (depends on the data availability by BPS and related Government Institutions).
  3. To present provincial data using existing data from the Government (National Social Economic Survey, National Labor Force Survey, Basic Health Survey, Indonesian Demographic and Health Survey, etc.).
  4. To provide strategic recommendations on policies and programmes to address the gaps.

Data Source:

The publication will mainly underlie to the series of National Social Economic Survey (SUSENAS) 2015-2019, National Labor Force Survey (SAKERNAS) 2015-2019, Basic Health Survey (Riskesdas) 2013 & 2018, Indonesian Demographic and Health Survey, 2017 (IDHS), Inter-censal Population Survey (SUPAS) 2015, and proxy indicators developed by BAPPENAS and BPS-Statistics Indonesia.

Intended audience:

The deliverable will be used by government institutions, development partners and CSOs as the reference for advocacy on issues related youth development; and evaluate policies and programmes on youth development.



The report will present the updated data of the selected SDGs indicators, which are reflected in the report on 2018 SDGs Baseline on Adolescent and Youth.

  1. The consultant is suggested to have a consultation with the Government and to obtain an agreement on the updated data of indicators and targets directly correlate with youth issues. Then, the analysis on update of the SDGs data could be done based on the selected targets and indicators.
  2. To the extent possible, the consultant will conduct data analysis of national surveys such as the Indonesia Demographic Health Survey, SUSENAS, SAKERNAS, and RISKESDAS, as well as administrative data from government departments and agencies and United Nations interagency estimates.
  3. The analysis will be contextualised using available data/information from literature, routine sectoral reports, and survey reports.
  4. The profiling of selected SDGs targets will be done in consultation with Bappenas and UN agencies and will cover topics on development qualities, including, but not limited to, health, education, employment, and participation. Profiles should highlight disparities, in particular by gender, geography, age groups, and poverty status.
  5. In conducting this assignment, the consultant must closely communicate with Bappenas to ensure the work and deliverables are aligned with national priority agenda. It will be important for the consultant to support Bappenas leadership as a national coordinator as well as BPS technical leadership and to ensure Government and BPS’ active involvement throughout the entire exercise.
