Overview of SDG progress

Indonesia has shown its commitment through the issuance of regulatory framework such as the Presidential Regulation and the Decree of the Minister of National Planning. SDGs also have well-aligned with the targets of NAP. However, to accelerate the delivery of the SDGs by 2030, several areas need significant attention:1) Ensuring inclusive governance to promote leave no one behind. SDGs could be a success if the government accepts ideas from stakeholders and agrees to provide support in terms of access to data and resources 2) Ensuring that the government allocates funds for SDG implementation. Currently, the financial framework for NGOs to access funds from the state budget is not yet available. It is important that this is considered during the budgetary cycle so that government will not only measure targets but also the inclusiveness of the SDGs which involve multiple parties.
