Support to the Acceleration of MDG Achievement Project

What we do

The Support to the Acceleration of MDG Achievement project provides support to the Government of Indonesia in in the implementation of MDG Roadmap which was launched through the Presidential Instruction (InstruksiPresiden/Inpres) No. 3/2010 on the ‘Equitable Development Programme.’ Indonesia had registered successful achievements to most of its MDG targets which include as follows:

  • MDG 1 – the proportion of people whose per capita income is less than USD 1.00 (purchasing power parity – PPP)
  • MDG 3 – relative gender parity in the net enrolment rate (NER) of females to males in senior high schools; and in the literacy ratio of females to males aged 15-24 years
  • MDG 6 – reduced tuberculosis (TB) mortality rates; and a higher proportion of TB cases detected and treated under the directly observed treatment short-course (DOTS) programme

The country is on track to achieve, by 2015, the MDG targets as follows:

  • MDG 1 – reduced poverty gap ratio (incidence x depth of poverty); decreased proportion of self-employed, casual and contributing family workers in employment
  • MDG 2 – 100 percent NER in primary education; a completion rate of 100 percent for children in primary schooling; and 100 percent literacy rate for people aged 15-24 years
  • MDG 3 – relative gender parity in the NER of females to males in senior high school and higher education levels; increased share of women in non-agricultural wage employment; and increased proportion of women in parliament
  • MDG 4 – reduced under-five child mortality rate (by two-thirds)
  • MDG 5 – improved contraceptive use for married women aged 15-49 years (modern method); reduced teenage pregnancy rates (for females aged 15-19 years); and increased antenatal service coverage
  • MDG 7 – reduced consumption of ozone-depleting substances; sustained number of fish stocks within safe biological limits; and increased protection areas for biodiversity preservation (both terrestrial and marine)
  • MDG 8 – a more open, rule-based, predictable, non-discriminatory trading and financial system; progress towards making debt more sustainable over the long-term; and an increased proportion of the population with fixed line and mobile phones

Meanwhile the MDG targets that are showing progress, but require a great deal of efforts include as follows:

  • MDG 1 – reduced number of people living below the poverty line (by half)
  • MDG 5 – reduced maternal mortality rate; and increased supply of family planning services in response to demand
  • MDG 6 – decreased HIV/AIDS rate; increased use of condoms during high-risk sex; increased knowledge about HIV/AIDS in the younger demographic (aged 15-24 years); increased access to antiretroviral (ARV) drugs for those with advanced HIV; and an increased proportion of under-five children sleeping under insecticide-treated mosquito nets
  • MDG 7 – increased forest coverage areas; decreased carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions; decreased energy consumption; and increased number (by twofold) of people with sustained access to drinking water and proper sanitation
  • MDG 8 – increased proportion of households with access to the internet and personal computers

UNDP’s key role under this project stretches from 2013 to 2015 focusing specifically on providing technical support through capacity development activities in the implementation of the Subnational action plans(RencanaAksi Daerah/RAD), effective monitoring and evaluation of these plans and the development of appropriate financing mechanismsfor the targeted regionsThe action plans were prepared based on the Ministerial Decree of the National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) No. KEP.47/M.PPN/HK/03/2011. In parallel to this, UNDP also collaborates with other UN agencies which have prioritized support under the UN Partnership Development Framework (UNPDF).

Institutional and Policy Framework for MDG Acceleration

In the initiation phase, the project had supported the MDG Secretariat to prepare for the institutional and policy framework for MDG acceleration. The key achievements on Institutional and Policy Framework include as follows:

  • MDG Roadmap finalized
  • 2011 Report of the Achievement of the Millennium Development Goals in Indonesia
  • Legal status for the National MDG Team and Secretariat was established and the institutions made fully operational
  • The institutions provided with technical and step-by-step guidelines on how to review the action plans
  • Guidelines for the newly established MDG monitoring and evaluation mechanism produced
  • Guidelines for the fiscal and non-fiscal incentive mechanism produced
  • Guidelines on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Public Private Partnership (PPP) funding mechanism produced
  • 33 Subnational action plans developed with support from the National MDG Technical Assistance Team and ratified through Governor Regulation (Pergub) 

MDG Acceleration Framework (MAF)

UNDP Indonesia supported the Government of Indonesia in bringing lagging MDG targets back on track at both the National and Subnational levels. Under the UNDP’s MDG Acceleration Framework (MAF), bottlenecks were identified, feasible solutions were developed and applied through action plans and responsibilities were assigned to relevant stakeholders. The MAF has also been successfully initiated in countries like Colombia, Ghana and Tanzania. Meanwhile, Indonesia has implemented MAF in Central Java Province specifically on MDG 5 – Maternal Health.

To support the acceleration efforts, through consultation with UNDP, the Government of Indonesia has been working to allocate financial and non-financial incentives to assist in the Subnational activities to accelerate the MDG achievements. The key progress activities under MDG Acceleration Framework include as follows:

  • The project had supported a working group on MDG achievements (KelompokKerja/POKJA) at the National and Subnational levels through technical capacity, data support and materials provision as well as guiding and coaching to develop action plans to accelerate MDG achievements.
  • Technical Working Group and Steering Committee meetings were initiated periodically which involves BAPPENAS senior officials. These meetings are vital to generate strategic recommendations on MDG Acceleration efforts which trickles down to the Subnational level and strengthen their MDG Acceleration activities
