Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) - Indonesia, 2020-2025

Speeches Shim

USAID’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) goal is: “Indonesia is an advanced, just, prosperous, and self-reliant Indo-Pacific partner.” The CDCS goal is based on the Government of Indonesia (GOI) medium-term development plan (RPJMN 2020-2024) goal. By using the GOI’s own language in the CDCS goal, USAID sends a clear signal of support and alignment with Indonesia’s development objectives, as well as highlighting partnership and Indonesian ownership. The goal also underpins USAID’s Policy Framework that places the Journey to Self-Reliance (J2SR) at the forefront of our development cooperation by reorienting our work around fostering country capacity and commitment across all levels.

Indonesia’s performance on the J2SR Country Roadmap is further along the path to self-reliance compared to peer countries. Indonesia is above the low- and middle-income country average for 14 of 17 Self-Reliance Indicators. Within ASEAN, Indonesia is ranked near the top for both capacity and commitment. However, underlying weaknesses and vulnerabilities may impede J2SR progress in some areas. The J2SR Country Roadmap has inherent limitations for a large country like Indonesia. As such, it masks some capacity/commitment weaknesses and vulnerabilities, subnational disparities, and urban-rural differences.
