The 2030 is the plan  of  action  for  people,  planet,  and  prosperity.
In the midst of the advance development on science, technology and economic growth  marked  by  swift  international  trade  transactions,  the world  was  shocked  by  the  emergence  of  the  Covid  19  pandemic  which killed  millions  of  people,  paralyzed  various  sectors  of  economy  and industry  and  created  enormous  fear  in  various  circles.  Breakthrough efforts to  reduce  the  spread  of  the  Covid-19  epidemic  and  economic paralysis were carried out by various countries  by  making  various breakthrough   policies   in   various   fields,   including   health,   social assistance in the  form  of  social  safety  net  and  economic  policy  policies to generate economic growth.


Apparently,  we  never  know  when  the  Covid  19  pandemic  will  end,  but  as a  public  entity,  the  state  must  always  be  present  in  order  to  overcome all the problems  it  faces,  the  state  must  always  be  a  dynamic  institution in  finding  appropriate  and  fast  alternative   solutions   for   immediately reduce the rate of spread of this epidemic and trigger rapid  recovery  in various fields.

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.
