About This Report

The year 2021 challenged Indonesia and the UN System like few others in recent memory. As Indonesia grappled with the socio-economic fallout of COVID-19's first year, it was hit with a devasting wave of infections driven by COVID-19's Delta Variant.

These challenges played out against the backdrop of the first year of the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2021-2025 (UNSDCF), a five-year strategy agreed between the UN and the Government of Indonesia to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Indonesia's national development priorities.

The UN in Indonesia’s Country Results Report 2021 details the collective achievements of the UN and the Government of Indonesia. The results it contains—organised under the UNSDCF's four outcome areas of inclusive Human Development, Economic Transformation, Green Development, and Innovation to Accelerate the SDGs—evidence our shared commitment to leaving no one behind.

The Ulap Doyo Pattern

The boat motif that appears throughout the report was inspired by the Ulap Doyo weaving technique that originated with the Dayak people of Kalimantan. It symbolises how the UN, the Government, and Indonesian people remained steadfast to the SDGs and came together to navigate the treacherous waters of 2021.
