SDG Baseline Report on Children in Indonesia
SDGS AND CHILDREN IN INDONESIA
Sustainable development begins with children. Growing up free from poverty, healthy and educated, feeling happy and being safe, is the foundation for becoming adults that contribute to the economy, a sustainable environment and a socially cohesive society. At the heart of the SDGs is therefore a strong emphasis on equity: the global development goals are only reached if they are achieved for all children, everywhere. Thus, the well-being of children today constitutes an important marker of progress towards the attainment of the SDGs.
This report is a key contribution to Indonesia’s efforts to operationalize and localize the global goals for our national context. It provides valuable insights and an indepth, disaggregated analysis of the 2015 baseline status of SDGs for children in Indonesia.
