A Program of The Foundation for Sustainable Development (Yayasan Pembangunan Berkelanjutan)

Starting in 2004, LEAD Indonesia, a program of Yayasan Pembangunan Berkelanjutan (the Foundation for Sustainable Development, or YPB) has expanded its undertakings to go beyond the LEAD Associate Training, which has always been the thrust of its existence. This new undertaking is concerned with developing partnerships with other institutions to carry out various programs in response to national and local needs.

Since 1992, YPB, a not-for-profit organization, has carried out the vision promoted by LEAD International in initiating changes for a deeper understanding and more active participation in sustainable development. The program, conducted jointly with many countries and coordinated by LEAD International, established a capacity building program through the training of mid-career professionals for leadership in sustainable development. Leadership for sustainable development is the capacity to view development in a comprehensive and holistic framework to ensure that development is economically viable, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable.
