The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all by 2030, are an international consensus adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. The Government of Indonesia has been proactively committed to achieving the SDGs. Indonesia’s national development agenda has been aligned with the 17 SDGs’ goals and their targets of the sustainable development agenda. The agenda has been integrated into the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) and Government Annual Work Plan (RKP) at the national level and Regional Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMD) and Regional Annual Work Plan (RKPD) at the regional level along with their budgets.
The Presidential Decree No. 59/2017 stipulates that both the National Action Plan (RAN) and Subnational Action Plan (RAD) should be formulated to promote the implementation of the SDGs. These action plans are expected to clearly show the connection between the government’s and non-governments’ activities and SDG indicators concerned, together with their baselines, targets, budgets, and responsible bodies.
The national government already formulated the first RAN in 2018, which was aligned with the 2015–2019 RPJMN. As the new RPJMN, for the 2020–2024 period has been set, the second RAN needs to be prepared in line with this new mid-term development plan. Bappenas and the JICA Project Team consider it necessary to mobilize national professionals for each of the SDGs’ goals as they have the relevant expertise and practical experience. At the request of the government, the JICA Project Team appoints SMERU as the national consultant to participate in the preparation of the next RAN.
