The National Mid-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2020-2024 reflects the Government of Indonesia’s (GOI) strong commitment to achieving the SDGs while making a significant shift towards low-carbon economic transformation and intensifying efforts to address underfunded sectors such as sanitation and developing the blue economy. Despite the many advances pre-COVID-19, a GOI study indicated that an estimated USD 4.7 trillion (tn) of funding is required to achieve the SDGs.
The Joint Programme (JP) “Driving Public and Private Capital Towards Green and Social Investments in Indonesia / Accelerating SDGs Investments in Indonesia (ASSIST)” brings four UN agencies (UNDP, UNEP, UNICEF, and UNIDO) together to support the GoI to meet its SDG targets. This support will be delivered by (1) taking proven and new financing instruments to scale through the provision of pre- and post-transactions technical assistance for three financing instruments: thematic bonds, blended finance instrument, and SDG-linked loans, and (2) providing capacity building to relevant stakeholders (e.g. GoI, Local Governments (LGs), Financial Institutions, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises or SMEs) to improve institutional capacities to access and utilize finance towards the achievement of the SDGs.
The interventions will build on and take to scale successful UN programmes taking into account the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. This will result in a reduction in the financing gap and accelerating Indonesia’s SDGs achievement through increased financing from innovative financing mechanisms and instruments from both government and non-government sources (e.g., public, private, and Islamic capital). The JP has the potential to assist the GoI and other key stakeholders to achieve the identified programmatic outcomes during the period of 2021-2024.
The Project Management Unit (PMU) ASSIST will be hosted in UNDP’s Innovative Finance Lab (IFL) and will be led by a National Project Manager (NPM), supported by a Chief Technical Expert. The PMU will own daily management, with regular meetings (leveraging travel and technology) to drive cross-programme cohesion. PMU will also maintain a programme management dashboard to monitor updates and progress on both outcome and output level milestones. The PMU will also undertake other non-technical functions such as finance, admin, communication, and other support functions.
The Chief Technical Expert (CTE) post will support the National Project Manager in the development and management of the Joint Programme and will report to the Head of IFL. The main role of the CTE is to provide key guidance to project managers and technical coordinators, forge new partnerships with development partners and the private sector to strengthen the JP, while also providing project assurance and technical assistance to projects when required as well as conducting overall monitoring and other relevant operational functions. The CTE is also expected to manage effective communication with the Secretariat of Joint SDG Fund, RC Office, and PUNOs focal points. The CTE will work in close collaboration with programme and operations units in the PMU, as well as with Government officials, multi-lateral and bilateral donors and civil society to successfully implement the JP.
