Diah Saminarsih: SDGs Progress in Indonesia

In the SDG Index 2021, Indonesia is stable at 97th out of 193 participating countries. Diah said the challenge to pursuing the next record is to rely on the role of the younger generation who dominate 60% of the population. Especially in improving the health and education sectors which can be a trigger for the improvement of other goals.
