UNDP and the UN
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is one of 22 UN agencies, funds and programmes currently operating in Indonesia. UNDP has been present in Indonesia for over 35 years, supporting the government to advance human development in the country. As one of many UN entities, UNDP implements activities under the broad umbrella of the UN Partnership for Development Framework (UNPDF). Similar to the UNPDF, UNDP’s country programme is furthermore fully aligned with Indonesia’s national development goals as set out in the National Medium-Term Development Plan 2010-2014(RPJMN). By ensuring that programmes are in line with national development priorities as well as with the outcomes of the UNPDF, UNDP aims to foster national ownership and needs responsiveness, while at the same time supporting coherence and synergies of the UN system partnership with Indonesia. UNDP Indonesia focuses programmatic attention on four major areas: promoting democratic governance; reducing poverty; promoting disaster awareness and reducing disaster risks; and protecting the environment, which includes the development of sustainable energy. In implementing these programmes, UNDP engages closely with a range of partners, including the Government of Indonesia, non-governmental organizations, civil society organizations, community-based organizations, multilateral agencies, bilateral donors and private firms.
