UNDP is the leading United Nations organization fighting to end the injustice of poverty, inequality, and climate change. Working with our broad network of experts and partners in 170 countries, we help nations to build integrated, lasting solutions for people and planet. Learn more at or follow at @UNDP.

In regard to the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals, it is a well-established fact that the achievement of the SDGs requires substantial financial and technical resources. The World Investment Report highlighted that the gap in financing for the SDGs in developing countries is currently estimated at US$ 2.5 trillion every year. This is beyond the scope of individual governments or Official Development Assistance (ODA) and it requires a broader alliance of partners, new voices and new perspectives, including from both public and private sectors to jointly support development efforts.

In case of Indonesia, the government is strongly committed to implementing the SDGs and has integrated them into national development plans and processes, and its commitment to achieving them is reflected in the fact that it has institutionalized roles and responsibilities for their implementation at the country level through a Presidential Decree in 2017. A key challenge is to ensure that continued economic growth becomes more inclusive and ‚greener‘ for it to also support accelerated progress effectively in social and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. A comprehensive strategy for mobilizing the public and private investments is also required.

UNDP is supporting government and partners to find innovative solutions to finance the SDGs. UNDP Indonesia established the Innovative Finance Lab (IFLab) in 2017 with the objective to unlock and leverage new finance to close the SDGs financing gap. The Lab operates as a collaborative space for Government, the private sector, investors and entrepreneurs, religious organizations, civil society, other UN agencies and other interested stakeholders to engage and develop solutions for financing the SDGs. It maps and analyzes financing gaps and opportunities, co-designs and tests new financing solutions, helps to align investments with SDGs as well as measuring progress and evaluating impact.
