Indonesia: Multi-Stakeholder BCtA Action Dialogue around the Kampala Principles



A multi-stakeholder ‘Action Dialogue’ on private sector engagement in development cooperation will be held online on March 9 with the participation of government representatives, development partners, private sector actors and civil society in Indonesia. This will be followed by an hour-long workshop with representatives from the local Indonesian business community on the same theme.  

The Action Dialogue is hosted by UNDP’s Business Call to Action and the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation, in partnership with Germany and the UNDP Country Office in Indonesia, and is dedicated to the country-level implementation of the Kampala Principles. The Kampala Principles are a set of five mutually reinforcing principles designed by and for the business community, governments and their development partners/donors, civil society, and other stakeholders, to enhance the effectiveness of development partnerships with the private sector at the country level. Learn more about the Kampala Principles and development cooperation with the private sector here and here.  

The aim of the session is to better understand the perspective of governments, development partners, private sector actors, and civil society organizations involved in private sector engagement in development cooperation in Indonesia. The session will touch upon what drives businesses to engage in development cooperation partnerships and what can be done by all actors to make development cooperation more effective.   

“The private sector’s engagement in development cooperation is particularly critical as a core partner with valuable knowledge and experience on how to scale solutions. It’s not what we do, but how we work together to do it. Therefore, we are keen on mobilizing and activating the private sector towards sustainable development, increasing effectiveness in private sector engagement in development cooperation – a key pillar of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” said Uta Böllhoff, Deputy Director-General at the Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Germany. 

Details on the Action Dialogue: The Action Dialogue will consist of a one-hour session to be opened with a brief introduction of the Kampala Principles by Germany and leading into a discussion panel with representatives from the private sector, government, development partners, and civil society about the challenges and opportunities for the implementation of the Principles in Indonesia. Following the Action Dialogue, we will hear of a case study on the implementation of the Kampala Principles at the country level and a workshop with representatives from the local business community to unpack and discuss the Kampala Principles further from a private sector perspective.   

“Given the cooperation needed for COVID response and recovery, the need for diverse stakeholders to come together to share knowledge and experience and develop innovative solutions to leave no one behind is vital. We encourage the local businesses community to attend the session to bring forth their perspective on how partnerships for development cooperation can be more effective,” said Luciana Aguiar, Head of UNDP Business Call to Action.
