In 2012, Indonesia’s development co-operation amounted to an estimated USD 19 million, compared to USD 7 million in 2011 (OECD estimates). USD 16 million (86%) was channelled through multilateral organisations.
Several government regulations, national plans and presidential instructions guide Indonesia’s development co-operation. The National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) is responsible for developing and co‑ordinating Indonesia’s national strategy for development co-operation. Together with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA), the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and the State Secretariat, BAPPENAS constitutes the National Co-ordination Team on South-South and Triangular Cooperation.
Indonesia co-operates bilaterally with around 40 partner countries, most of them in Asia, in a variety of sectors. Bilateral co-operation consists mainly of scholarships and technical co-operation projects.
Indonesia is also engaged in triangular co-operation, partnering with several international organisations and Development Assistance Committee (DAC) members in Timor‑Leste.
In 2012, Indonesia’s development co‑operation through multilateral organisations was entirely channelled through United Nations agencies; UNESCO (40%) and International Fund for Agricultural Development (22%) being its main partners.
Indonesia is a Key Partner of the OECD. In 2013, Indonesia participated in the DAC Senior‑Level Meeting. Indonesia also contributed to the DAC’s work on aid for trade.
