Gov’t Issues Regulation on National Sports Grand Design
Date 17 September 2021
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has issued Presidential Regulation (Perpres) Number 86 of 2021 on the National Sports Grand Design.
The Presidential Regulation was signed by President Jokowi on the commemoration of the 38th National Sports Day (Haornas) on September 9, 2021.
The ground for the issuance of the National Sports Grand Design (DBON) is the need for an integrated and collaborative long-term policy for national sports development to improve the nation’s competitiveness in sports sector.
“The development of national sports in an integrated and collaborative manner needs to be supported by synchronized policies under the national sports grand design, in line with the national development planning,” the Regulation, which can be accessed on the Cabinet Secretariat’s JDIH website, states.
The DBON is a master plan document that contains the direction of national sports development policies in an effective, efficient, excellent, measurable, systematic, accountable and sustainable manner in the scopes of educational sports, recreational sports, competitive sports, and sports industry.
The goals of the DBON are to improve sports culture in communities; improve capacity, synergy, and productivity of national sports achievements; and promote a sports-based national economy.
“The DBON aims to provide guidelines for the Central Government, provincial governments, regency/city governments, sports organizations, sports associations, business and industry, academics, media, and the public in the implementation of national sports so that the national sports development can be conducted in an effective, efficient, excellent, measurable, accountable, systematic, and sustainable manner,” Article 2 paragraph (2) of the Regulation reads.
The Regulation stipulates the DBON vision which is an overview of the DBON implementation in an effective, efficient, excellent, measurable, accountable, systematic, and sustainable manner, and the DBON mission which contains the measures to be carried out to achieve the vision.
The Presidential Regulation also sets principles, goals and objectives, policies and strategies, as well as roadmap of the DBON. The DBON roadmap consists of five stages for the period of 2021 to 2045, namely 2021 to 2024, 2025 to 2029, 2030 to 2034, 2035 to 2039, and 2040 to 2045.
“The DBON is stipulated in the appendix which is an integral part of the Presidential Regulation,” the Regulation states.
The Presidential Regulation also stipulates that the implementation of the DBON is carried out by the Central Government, provincial governments, and regency/city governments in cooperation with sports organizations, business and industry, communities, individuals, academics, and the media.
“The implementation of the DBON includes planning, supervision, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and reporting,” Article 5 paragraph (2) of the Regulation reads.
The Regulation states that a Central Coordination Team shall be established at the national level. The team has tasks of coordinating, synchronizing, and integrating the implementation of the DBON; coordinating the planning, supervision, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and reporting of the DBON implementation; and coordinating the institutional capacity building of the provincial and regency/city governments in implementing the DBON.
At the regional level, Provincial Coordination Teams and Regency/City Coordination Teams shall be established. The team has tasks of coordinating, integrating, and synchronizing the implementation of the DBON as well as coordinating the planning, supervision, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and reporting of the DBON implementation in regions.
According to the Regulation, the Provincial Coordination Teams have the task of coordinating the institutional capacity building of regency/city governments in the DBON implementation. Meanwhile, the Regency/City Coordination Teams have tasks of implementing programs and activities based on the DBON in accordance with the needs and potential of sports in regency/city areas as well as solving problems related to the implementation of the DBON in regency/city areas.
The Regulation also stipulates that the funding for the DBON implementation may be sourced from the State Budget (APBN), the Regional Budget (APBD), and/or other legal and non-binding sources, in accordance with the provisions of laws and regulations.
The funding for competitive sports is provided by the Minister to sports organizations and the Indonesian National Paralympic Committee (NPC).
