Our Projects


Poverty Reduction

  • Support to the Acceleration of MDG Achievement Project

    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.

  • PCDP Project

    A project funded by the New Zealand’s Government International Aid and Development Programme and the Netherland was launched in 2006 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Indonesia which was aimed to accelerate the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) focusing on Papua and West Papua provinces


Democratic Governance

  • SAJI Project

    Indonesia registers only 17 percent of its vulnerable population with access to legal service while the poorer provinces throughout the Eastern part of the country has only as low as 10 percent of capacity in bringing cases to court. For the most part, this issue was caused by limited income of the communities that has hindered the access to pursue legal action through the formal justice system. The level of awareness to the legal aid service provided free of charge by the Government has proven to be low with as much as 96.5 percent of the Supreme Court’s IDR 34.5 billion legal aid budget had remained untouched in 2011.

  • Indonesian Democracy Index (IDI) project

    The democracy transition which took place in 1999 has brought about some progressive changes that started with the democratic election in 1999 whereby new political parties took part in the general elections and subsequently paved the way for the presidential election in 2004. The country which has rolled out decentralization governance throughout 33 provinces and over 500 districts and municipalities has now function with the Regional Representative Council and reformed its basic political laws towards a full democracy

  • The Legal Empowerment and Assistance for the Disadvantaged

    The Legal Empowerment and Assistance for the Disadvantaged (LEAD) Project was designed to target poor and marginalized citizens in order to promote greater access to justice for all.

  • PGSP

    In 2010, UNDP in a joint initiative with the Government of Indonesia (GoI) launched the Provincial Governance Strengthening Programme (PGSP) to address the challenges emerging with the decentralized political process, set up nearly a decade ago.


Crisis Prevention and Recovery

  • Safer Communities through Disaster Risk Reduction in Development

    Indonesia is one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. Between 1980 and 2010, it is estimated that natural disasters alone affected around 22 million people. In 2010 disasters amounted to an estimated economic loss of 5 trillion rupiahs.

  • Disaster Risk Reduction Based Rehabilitation and Reconstruction (DR4) project

    Moving forward from some major disasters which started with the 2004 Tsunami and Earthquake in Aceh Provinceand the 2006 Earthquake in Yogyakarta Special Province, the Government of Indonesia through its Coordinating Ministry of the National Agency for Disaster Management (Badan Nasional PenanggulanganBencana/BNPB) was propelled to shift and adopt pre-emptive measures on disaster risk reduction based on pre-disaster planning,

  • The Peace Through Development in Disadvantaged Areas (PTDDA)

    Launched in June 2012, The Peace Through Development in Disadvantaged Areas (PTDDA) project provides a framework for UNDP's continual support to the Government in enhancing capacity at all levels, for conflict preventions and peace building.


Environment and Energy

  • Wind Hybrid Power Generation Marketing Development Initiatives WHyPGen Indonesia

    Since 1980, the total primary energy demand in Indonesia has grown rapidly at an average of 4.6% per year, while GDP has grown at 4.8% per year. According to the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR), Indonesia still needs 35,000 MW of electricity before 2015. In anticipation of a future electricity crisis, the National Electricity Company (PLN) has encouraged the investment and promotion of renewable energy (RE) generation by private electricity companies (IPPs) so that they may immediately set up new RE power projects to supplement the current limited fossil power generation that is experiencing outages.

  • Strategic Planning and Action to strengthen climate resilience of Rural Communities in Nusa Tenggara Timor Province SPARC

    The province of East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) is located in the eastern part of Indonesia. It consists of about 550 islands, with Flores, Sumba and West Timor as the main islands. NTT is one of the poorest provinces in Indonesia with a poverty incidence of 25.7%, compared to 16% nationally (Source: Central Statistics Agency, BPS – 2008). T h e comparatively high level of poverty is a chronic problem, and has been for decades. This is also reflected in the Human Development Index (HDI) for NTT which continues to be far behind the national HDI. While the national HDI today reflects the status of a middle income country, the HDI for NTT is at the level of a least developed country such as Lao PDR. The disparity between NTT and the rest of Indonesia is of concern in terms of social and political stability in the province.

  • Barriers Removal to the cost-effective development of energy Efficiency Standards and Labeling BRESL Indonesia

    Over the past decade, Asia has had an average growth rate in energy use of 3.7%, more than twice the global average of 1.6%. With the rapid economic growth in many countries in the region, the demand for major appliances and equipment is expected to keep increasing. EnergyEfficiency Standards and Labeling (ES&L) programmes and policies are an effective way of improving energy efficiency and to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. ES&L programmes are also among the most cost-effective types of policies to mitigate global climate change

  • Microturbine Cogeneration Technology Application Project MCTAP Indonesia

    ndonesia faces an ever-increasing demand for electricity. It is estimated that between 2000 and 2005, the demand grew 4.5 times. Since 1999, the Government of Indonesia has advocated for a gradual shift from diesel-based generation, and put its priority on alternative energies, including renewable energies. However, there are factors that impact the effective utilization of alternatives to oil.

  • Developing a pro-poor Biogas model for dairy farmers in East Java Switch to BIOGAS

    Switch to BIOGAS (209-2011) is a pilot project on integrated biogas technology in Lumajang District, East Java Province, implemented by UNDP in collaboration with the Lumajang district government with support from the Korean Energy Management Corporation (KEMCO). The implementation of an integrated energy-environment-economy approach has resulted in access to biogas energy for low-income farmers, better environmental and sanitation conditions, an increase in farmer’s income and the promotion of local investment in the fish feed and organic fertilizer sectors.

  • Application of biochar technology in Indonesia: Sequestering carbon in the soil, improving crop yield and providing alternative clean energy BIOCHAR Project Indonesia

    As one of the first countries to commit to a significant reduction in its greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, the Government of Indonesia is leading the way towards a greener future. Indonesia aims to reduce emission levels by 26 percent by 2020, below the business-as-usual trajectory, and by 41 percent with adequate international support.


    Palm oil and its derivatives are part of thousands of products across the globe today. One can find it in biodiesel, soap, doughnuts as well as soap, to mention only a few. Since 1990, palm oil consumption has quintupled worldwide. The demand in Asia, where palm oil is used in cooking oil, accounts for a $44 billion industry. Indonesia is the world’s largest producer of palm oil, with a forecasted annual growth in production of 10%. Early 2013, exports from Indonesia hit a five-year high.

  • Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB)

    The Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Indonesia is part of the global partnership program that has been participated by 25 countries as one of the efforts to support low-emission development strategy in achieving sustainable development targets.

  • Hydrofluorocarbons Phase Out Management Plan (HPMP)

    In the 1970s, scientists discovered certain man-made compounds contributed to the depletion of the Ozone Layer. These are the Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) that have both Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and Global Warming Potential (GWP). The compounds can be found in such every-day household items as refrigerators, Styrofoam cups, spray deodorants and cushions. In 1984,
