Despite of having a significant achievement in reducing the extreme poverty level before the year of 2015, there are many things yet to be done in Indonesia in order to reach the number one goal of SDGs, ending poverty in all of its manifestations, including extreme poverty by 2030. Due to the comprehensive nature and ambitious goals of the SDGs, strong commitment from all relevant stakeholders to cooperate together in a multi-stakeholder partnerships setting in achieving the goals is indeed very crucial. Multi-stakeholder partnership approach in reducing poverty matters since each stakeholders will bring each of their own core competence, unique knowledge and skills, assets and resources, as well as wealth of experiences in dealing with poverty issues, and as a result, there will be synergies developed to co-create innovative solutions to tackle poverty issues more effectively that none of the stakeholders could have developed on its own. Nevertheless, from the multiple in-depth interviews held with each respective stakeholders involved in the SDGs poverty reduction initiatives there are still several challenges facing the partnership that are needed to be solved, such as: coordination difficulties among several stakeholders, compartmentalized or 'silo' approaches in solving poverty issues, different perceptions in understanding the goals, and other communication issues. Therefore, several solutions recommended to solve these issues are: intensifying the communication efforts with all respective stakeholders in order to build consensus, trust and mutual understanding, engaging more stakeholders, and looking for more innovative approaches in ensuring development financing participation coming from the private sector.
