Sustainable Development Goals at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry
Indonesia's commitment to implement the Sustainable Development Goals is realized by the issuance of the Presidential Regulation on SDGs (Perpres) Number 59 of 2017, which specifies the Implementation of the Achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. The regulation was created in a participatory manner, involving all parties.
As a follow-up to the Presidential Regulation, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) issued Decree Number: SK.346 / MENLHK / SETJEN / SET.1 / 8/2018 on 9 August 2018, which concerns the Establishment of a Working Group for Sustainable Development Goals at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The decree aims to streamline and optimize the achievement of integrated and coordinated Sustainable Development Goals within the Ministry of Environment and Forestry.
The Ministry of Environment and Forestry's Planning Bureau, supported by FORCLIME, is the driver of the SDG Working Group. The Working Group met every Thursday from June to September in 2018. At each meeting, the WG members discussed the SDG Achievement Target Matrix, which is delivered by two work units (Echelon 2 level). The meeting series produced the main input for MoEF’s input on SDGs which was later compiled and developed as the Roadmap of Sustainable Development Goals of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry.
FORCLIME Technical Cooperation (TC Module) had an active role in the process of drafting the Decree of the Minister of Environment and Forestry as mentioned above, from the preparation up to its provision.
Furthermore, FORCLIME will support the Implementation Team, Working Group and Expert Team for Sustainable Development Goals of 2017-2019 at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry to mainstream Sustainable Development Goals into environmental and forestry development plans.
The SDG Road Map of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry
The MoEF SDG Roadmap Draft refers to the 2015-2019 SDG National Action Plan document, attached to the BAPPENAS Regulation Number 7 in 2018. It is stated in the National Action Plan that MoEF activities match to 7 objectives, namely Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-being); Goal 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation); Goal 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure); Goal 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities); Goal 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production); Goal 13 (Climate Action); and Goal 15 (Life on Land). In the National Action Plan of SDGs, the MoEF is the main driver in achieving Goals 12, 13, and 14 as well as co-supervisor for objectives 6 and 11. These objectives are included in the pillars of environmental development.
The draft of the MoEF SDG Road Map has been completed and is ready to be signed by the Minister. The next step will be the dissemination and socialization to various related parties which will involve FORCLIME-TC in its implementation.
