In response to the Ministerial Declaration of the 2nd Asian and Pacific Energy Forum (April 2018, Bangkok) and the Commission Resolution 74/9 which endorsed its outcomes, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) has been supporting member States to develop SDG7 roadmaps. ESCAP has designed the National Expert SDG Tool for Energy Planning (NEXSTEP) which enables policymakers to make informed policy decisions to support the achievement of the SDG7 targets as well as emission reduction targets (NDCs).
Progress of SDG7 roadmap development in Indonesia
ESCAP has been fortunate to have Indonesia as one of the three pilot countries in this initiative, and collaborate with the National Energy Council (NEC) in organizing national consultation workshops to apply the NEXSTEP tool as well as to provide recommendations and guidance on developing the SDG7 roadmap for Indonesia.
Objectives of the high-level policy dialogue (HLPD)
ESCAP in collaboration with the NEC is organizing a high-level policy dialogue on the SDG 7 roadmap for Indonesia. The main objectives of this HLPD are to:
+ Disseminate the key results and policy recommendations to high-level government representatives, international and regional agencies, private sector, and academic and research institutions;
+ Seek guidance on implementation of the recommendations to ensure the SDG 7 targets are achieved by 2030;
+ Encourage partnerships and collaborations to support the implementation of the SDG 7 roadmap; and
+ Officially launch the SDG 7 roadmap for Indonesia.
