DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION

A joint commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals

EU development cooperation supports Indonesia through thematic programmes, ASEAN regional cooperation, and work with development banks to boost sustainable investment and capacity building. Programmes are closely linked to Indonesia’s development policies, the Medium Term National Development Plan (RPJMN), the SDG Action Plan, and the Nationally Determined Contribution, which are central to the Paris Agreement and global efforts to reduce emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change at the national level

In the past, the bilateral EU development cooperation included large education sector support, as well as a focus on environment and climate change, and economic cooperation. Today, priority areas of cooperation include green growth, sustainable urbanisation, good governance, and human rights and gender.

The EU and its Member States are joining forces under a “Team Europe” approach, for instance through blended finance. This involves combining EU grants with loans from development banks such as Germany’s KfW and France’s Agence Française de Développement (AFD) to support priority reform areas and sustainable infrastructure investments in areas such as renewable energy.

With Indonesia – which launched its own aid agency, the Indonesian Agency for International Development (AID) in 2019 – increasing development cooperation with third countries, the EU is exploring possibilities for South-South and trilateral cooperation on issues such as SDG implementation. The EU is also supporting capacity building for Indonesia’s nascent development bank PT SMI.
