Indonesia's Development Co-operation


Indonesia’s total development co-operation reached USD 56 million in 2014, compared to USD 49 million in 2013 (OECD estimates).[1]

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, the Ministry of Finance and the State Secretariat, BAPPENAS constitutes the National Coordination 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

Indonesia is also engaged in triangular co-operation, partnering with several international organisations and Development Assistance Committee (DAC) members such as Germany, Japan, Norway, the United States and others.

According to OECD estimates, in 2015 Indonesia channelled all of its multilateral development co-operation through the United Nations.

Indonesia is a Key Partner of the OECD.
