First held in 2017, the Indonesia Development Forum (IDF) is an international conference hosted by the Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (Kementerian PPN/Bappenas) of the Republic of Indonesia. 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.

IDF2019 will be held at the Jakarta Convention Centre on 22-23 July 2019. The theme is Mission Possible: Seizing the Opportunities of Future Work to Drive Inclusive Growth.
