Description

Indonesia is among the leading countries in addressing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at both national and local level. Achieving the SDGs requires large scale of public and private investments. The cost of achieving the SDGs is estimated to be between $400 and $760 billion a year by 2030. This implies a significant financing gap, of between $40 – $66 billion for public resources and $54 – $94 billion for non-government finance. To address these challenges in financing SDGs, Indonesia needs to unlock and leverage new and innovative finance from both public and private sources. As the fourth most populous country in the world, and one of the fastest growing emerging markets, Indonesia harbors a huge potential for innovative finance, including blended finance, green finance and Islamic finance.
 
Innovative financing is approached by UNDP as a strategic lever for change, sitting at the core of the UNDP delivery system. UNDP Indonesia has made innovative finance a central part of its work on the SDGs with the objective to leverage new resources flows for sustainable development.

The Lab vision is to be a leading innovative finance platform under UNDP Indonesia CO that cooperates closely with the government and all stakeholders (international and national) to achieve the SDGs and provide knowledge and expertise to showcase best practices globally.

The Lab focuses on three interrelated work-streams, namely Islamic and Blended Finance, Green and Sustainable Finance, and Social Impact Investments. 
 
To support the project, the Project Coordinator post is established to provide effective and efficient support to the overall effort of UNDP and the Innovative Finance Lab through improvement of system, tools and mechanisms for policy and strategy planning, reporting, monitoring, analysis and evaluation.
