The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) consist of three main dimensions of development, namely: 1) Environmental Dimension; 2) Social Dimension; and 3) Economical Dimension. Therefore, the implementation of a holistic policy and synergistic program is important because the three aspects above are closely interrelated. However, in achieving the above targets, innovative efforts and partnership building between the government and civil society are needed, including for academics from various disciplinary backgrounds. This is due to the complexity of the problems faced in achieving the above targets.
An innovation and partnership with various stakeholders is needed to make science and technology as one of the main solutions to overcome the problem of sustainable development in the government.
