The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a global action plan agreed upon by world leaders, including Indonesia, to end poverty, reduce and protect the environment. The SDGs contain 17 Goals and 169 Targets that are expected to be achieved by 2030. However, the challenges to achieve the SDGs target are now getting tougher. The pandemic has resulted in a health and economic crisis that has worsened the achievements of the national and even global SDGs.
The challenges that arise due to the global pandemic cover the three pillars of the SDGs, namely the economic, social and environmental pillars. From an economic perspective, a pandemic has a negative impact on the supply and demand for economic growth, as well as people's livelihoods. On the social pillar, a pandemic increases the risk for women, children, the elderly and informal workers.
As for the environmental pillar, the COVID-19 pandemic has actually had a positive impact which has lost it due to decreased economic activity, but the positive impact is only temporary.
After Covid passes, energy demand will certainly experience a drastic increase, and in the future, it is hoped that all countries can realize sustainable economic development. The period after Covid has passed, will later be an opportunity to make improvements in an effort to achieve sustainable development. For this reason, all parties can take their respective roles - each in supporting the SDGs and in dealing with COVID-19. Moreover, the importance of cooperation between countries is also the key to overcoming this global pandemic.
In order to ensure the running of the SDGs in the midst of a pandemic, cooperation is needed and take respective roles in supporting the achievement of the SDGs. Polytechnic STIA LAN Bandung, will conduct the third international conference administration science (Third ICAS) with theme "Challenges and Opportunities in Achieving SDGs in The New Normal Era" with speakers of a range of academicians and practical expertise in the field of economy, business, public policy and administration, public governance, political economy etc.
