On the ground in 177 countries and territories, UNDP offers global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.

UNDP Indonesia's mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.

UNDP has been working on democratic governance issues in Indonesia for many years, and has contributed significantly to consolidating democracy through provision of policy advice and technical assistance, and by promoting and brokering dialogue and engaging in knowledge networking. In the justice sector, UNDP has been involved in providing support to ensuring access to justice and is currently implementing a Strengthening Access to Justice in Indonesia (SAJI) project which was developed based on experiences and lessons learned from two previous projects: Aceh Justice Programme (AJP) and the Legal Empowerment and Assistance for the Disadvantaged (LEAD) Project.

With funding support from the European Union, and in partnership with the Government of Indonesia, UNDP is initiating a project aimed at supporting the Supreme Court (SC) to strengthen the rule of law and enhance public trust in the judicial system by increasing the transparency, integrity and accountability of the judiciary and the quality of justice services provided to the people. The Support to the Justice Sector Reform in Indonesia (SUSTAIN) project will support the Supreme Court in the implementation of its Blueprint for Judicial Reform 2010-2035 through the achievement of four results: (1) enhanced internal and external oversight mechanisms of the judiciary; (2) enhanced knowledge and skills of judges & court staff and strengthened capacity of the Supreme Court Training Centre and of some of the country’s Special Courts and Administrative Tribunals; (3) enhanced Human Resource and Organisation Management via integrated Human Resources and performance management databases, an effective implementation of advanced Human Resources policies, and a strengthened Judicial Reform Team Office; and (4) enhanced Case Management System and procedures of the judiciary to improve transparency, quality of case data and decisions and timeliness of case handling.

In the framework for achievement of the project output (1) enhanced internal and external oversight mechanisms of the judiciary,  the SUSTAIN project supports the Supreme Court in developing systems for compliance check of wealth reports of judges and court staff by the Court in a view of cooperation with the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) and the Ministry for Bureaucratic Reform.
