Key documents for the Indonesia UN Partnership for Development Framework (UNPDF) TF:



Indonesia is a country on the move. In the last decade it has made important progress towards the targets of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It has graduated to Middle Income Country status and joined the fold of the G20 major advanced and emerging economies. Already the largest country in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), Indonesia chaired the regional organization in 2011. Indonesia's new status on the international stage also means that it is fully in charge of its own development programme. This fact is recognized by Indonesia's development partners through the 2009 Jakarta Commitment, a formal pledge to make aid more effective: international development efforts must directly support the targets and strategies formulated by the Government of Indonesia.

At the same time, Indonesia's reduced dependence on international aid is adding significantly to the responsibilities of existing governance structures to meet people's needs and narrow the significant disparities in development across the country.

The UN in Indonesia therefore places its strategic emphasis on providing high-quality policy advice and technical assistance to government at all levels. The UN family supports capacity-gap analysis, and then works to strengthen national and local authorities in the provision of services and opportunities for the people. Complementing its support to institutions, the UN in Indonesia also works to strengthen participation by civil society - empowering people to ask for, and to access, the services and opportunities they are entitled to.

Within this context, the UN Partnership for Development Framework (UNPDF) 2011-2015 was launched by the UN Country Team and Government of Indonesia in August 2010. The UNPDF is the guiding framework under which UN programmes and joint programmes are developed, and from which agency-specific Action Plans are devised, for the period 2011-2015. Although Indonesia is not a Delivery as One pilot country, ‘delivering for results’ and ‘value for money’ are key tenets of the UN Country Team (UNCT), which is committed to the principles of working together to improve effectiveness and efficiency as enshrined in the Jakarta Commitment of 2009.

In support of this approach, the Indonesia UNPDF Trust Fund has been established by the Government of Indonesia and the UN to help fund implementation of the joint UN-Government of Indonesia UNPDF 2011-2015. The trust fund will support integrated UN joint programmes with the aims of achieving the goals of Human Development agreed upon in the UNPDF.


Partnership Strategy

The guiding principles of the Trust Fund are twofold (i) Delivering for results under a programmatic approach and (ii) national ownership and alignment with Jakarta Commitment. The Trust Fund helps fund programmes and related activities in support of the UNPDF, with special consideration to strategic opportunities for enhancing developmental impact. This will enhance the flexibility and responsiveness of the UN system through the UNPDF to adapt to national priorities.

The five thematic outcomes of the UNPDF provide the foundation for priority setting for the trust fund: Social Services, Sustainable Livelihoods, Governance, Disaster Management and Climate Change. In addition, three cross-cutting issues – Gender, HIV/AIDS, and Human Rights - are mainstreamed in the UNPDF.

The proposals to be funded should meet the following criteria:

  • Proposals should be consistent with the UNPDF and the Government’s RPJMN as well as the respective local government’s Development plans and strategies.
  • Proposals should specify the UNPDF outcomes and outputs they aim to meet
  • Proposals should aim to fill priority gaps in the UNPDF implementation and/or should respond to emerging strategic opportunities to accelerate Development in Indonesia in line with UNPDF outcomes
  • Proposals should be results-oriented with a focus on efficiency and sustainability, and be completed within the life of the trust fund
  • Proposals should promote joint programming, and include two to four participating UN agencies, in order to ensure the programme benefits from the widest and best available expertise of the UN.



The Steering Committee, the Technical Committee, the Secretariat and the Administrative Agent are the principal bodies of the trust fund. Existing mechanisms and bodies to support the UNPDF, such as working groups, task forces, technical advisory committee, etc. are drawn upon by the four bodies during the governance and technical review processes of the trust fund. The UN Country Team, the principal decision making body of the UNPDF, is represented in the Steering Committee on an annual rotation of three members nominated by the UNCT, in addition to the RC as co-chair of the Steering Committee.

  1. The Trust Fund’s Steering Committee functions as the highest level decision-making, policy dialogue and coordination entity with streamlined membership and procedures for timely decision-making on Development needs. The Steering Committee is responsible for final decision making on fund allocation, and functioning of the trust fund.
  2. The Technical Committee provides substantive and technical support to the Steering Committee in the decision making process by providing analytical and advisory services at the request of the Steering Committee.
  3. The Secretariat of the Trust Fund consists of technical staff from Government and the UN, and provides secretarial services for the adequate functioning of the trust fund. The Secretariat is based in the office of the Resident Coordinator.
  4. The Administrative Agent provides fiduciary and administrative services to the trust fund at the instruction of the Steering Committee, and on behalf of the Participating UN Organizations.
