The programme was launched on 1 December in Bogor, at the ‘Launching Workshop of the Country Programming Framework (CPF)', a planning and programming tool that translates the FAO Strategic Framework into actions in Indonesia during the 2021-2025 period. This strategic document is conceived in close collaboration and partnership with the government of Indonesia and aims to support the government's priorities, planning, and reporting in regard to the 2030 agenda. The Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) leads the implementation of CPF in Indonesia coordinating and working closely together with other line ministries, and relevant stakeholders.

“CPF is set as the basis for FAO's country-level strategic priority and medium-term country-level programming. It defines the development priorities of Indonesia and FAO and contributes to national priorities, regional and corporate results," said Rajendra Aryal, FAO representative in Indonesia.

"The CPF is aligned with Indonesia's National Medium-Term Development Plan, and plays as the vehicle for defining United Nations' contribution and commitment to support national efforts to achieve economic and environmental targets to meet 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)," Aryal explained further.

The CPF sets out four strategic priorities to guide FAO's partnership and support, bringing together innovative international best practices and global standards with national and regional expertise. Under the CPF, there are nine FAO projects with the Ministry of Agriculture that are focused on various issues in the agricultural sector namely agricultural digitalisation (e-Agriculture), antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and emerging zoonotic diseases among many others.

“Through this CPF, I hope the cooperation between Indonesia and FAO can strengthen further to plan more with required flexibility," said Kasdi Subagyono, Secretary General of the Ministry of Agriculture."The CPF aligns with the priorities of the Government of Indonesia and it will contribute to the achievement of national strategic goals," added Kasdi further.
