Mission and objectives

UNDP believes that the people of Indonesia should have ownership over the programmes and projects we support. All UNDP programmes therefore actively promote the spirit of mutual respect, support and accountability and subscribe to the principle of national ownership as enshrined in the Jakarta Commitment – a declaration put forward by the government and its development partners in 2009 to strengthen aid effectiveness in Indonesia. In the true spirit of national ownership, all of UNDP’s assistance in Indonesia is implemented by national entities, including line ministries and the Ministry of National Planning and Development, and at the subnational level by line departments, provincial and district authorities as well as community groups. While each programme supported by UNDP has specific and varied objectives, capacity development is one aim that all UNDP programmes – in Indonesia and worldwide – have in common. This takes on many forms including institutional reform, leadership development, education, and training for members of the public such as journalists, and women’s communities. In line with this logic, UNDP advisers work side by side with Indonesian counterparts to strengthen capacities in technical matters, policy formulation and budget planning, amongst others.


The Joint SDG Fund is a multi-partner trust fund and an innovative instrument for incentivizing transformative policy shifts and stimulation of strategic investments to achieve the SDGs. It has funded more than 100 joint programmes focused on integrated social protection as well as SDG finance, encouraging over 1,000+ partnerships working alongside the UN in supporting SDG achievement, and tested over 200 innovative solutions in accelerating the 2030 Agenda. The ASSIST Joint Programme brings together UNDP, UNICEF, UNIDO, and UNEP, in a collaborative endeavour to support in (a) taking proven and new financing instruments to scale through provisions of pre- and post-transactions technical assistance for innovative financing instruments; and (b) providing capacity building to relevant stakeholders to improve institutional capacities to access and utilize finance towards the achievement of the SDGs. There are 3 (three) main component activities under the ASSIST JP which are: (1) Catalyzed Issuance of Thematic Bonds at National and Sub-National Level that aims to finance social and environmental projects by leveraging the use of instruments such as Indonesia SDG Bond, Blue Sukuk, and Municipal Bonds (2) Increased Green & SDG-Linked Loans to support banks to expand their loan facilities for SMEs with a focus on strengthening their contribution to SDGs and (3) Operationalized Indonesia Impact Fund, the first Indonesian private impact investment fund, investing into early-stage startups that are contributing to the implementation of SDGs in Indonesia.
