First held in 2017, the Indonesia Development Forum (IDF) is an international conference hosted by Bappenas.

IDF provides a platform for development practitioners in the public, private, and non-profit sectors to meet and exchange ideas. Presentations from experts and practitioners highlight research, insights, smart practices and lessons learned, from the grassroots to the national level, as well as international experiences relevant to the Indonesian context. Through interactive sessions, the forum promotes new thinking and approaches to addressing Indonesia’s key development challenges.

IDF aims to:

  • Convene development actors to shape Indonesia’s development agenda;
  • Communicate research and evidence on key development challenges and what solutions work to address them;
  • Promote collaboration in addressing Indonesia’s most pressing development issues

IDF is supported by the Australian Government through the Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI), and other development partners.

IDF will be held at the Jakarta Convention Centre and feature keynote speakers including Vice President Jusuf Kalla, Prof. Bambang Brodjonegoro and H.E Siti Nurbaya Bakar.
