To ensure the principle of “no one left behind” in achieving the SDGs, SDGs regulations and action plans has been made and implemented with a wide variety of all stakeholders, including both government and non-government to participate and contribute to sustainable development. This is a mandatory requirement considering that 2030 will be a year of high development complexity. In 2030, the development agenda will not only focus on economic growth, but also focus on ensuring the sustainability and welfare of the environment as well as human welfare and social security. Therefore, partnerships and collaborations are important aspects in achieving the SDGs.
However, stakeholder engagement as an initial effort to build partnerships and collaboration has not been managed optimally. Underdeveloped planning and governance results in ineffective engagement, although stakeholder engagement and partnerships offer big potential for building sustainable development in Indonesia. In the Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Guidelines for the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda (Bappenas, 2019), Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships can strengthen the mobilization of resources (finance and knowledge capacity) for sustainable development. Furthermore, development that involves multiple stakeholders can produce creative solutions, avoid conflict, gain social support and acceptance, and save time and money in the long term (Effective Stakeholder Engagement for the 2030 Agenda, UNESCAP, 2018).
Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships can be a strategic approach to respond to various development problems, including the COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens both human safety and the continued development of a country, including threatening efforts to achieve SDGs both at the national and regional levels. From an economic point of view, the National Economic Recovery (PEN) is one of the focuses of the Indonesian Government in facing the pandemic along with strengthening the health sector. As a response to this problem statement, the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Indonesia in collaboration with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) initiated the “Strengthening the Indonesia Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Initiatives for the 2030 Agenda” project to mainstream and strengthen Multi-Stakeholder Partnership initiatives to strengthen the knowledge and capacities of policy makers from various circles at the national and sub-national levels, and to institutionalize these partnerships to accelerate sustainability. development in Indonesia as a strategic approach to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs in lndonesia.
