Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are sustainable development programs which are implemented globally around the world until 2030. Indonesia as a member of the United Nations, is committed to supporting this program through Presidential Regulation No. 59 of 2017 concerning SDGs and their follow-up. Based on data from Bappenas on May 2020, it was recorded that only 25 provinces had finished preparing Regional Action Plan (RAD) as well as the issuance of related regional regulation. Papua Province is one of provinces which cannot complete the development of Regional Action Plan (RAD) in accordance to time which is specified in the SDGs program.


The constructivist paradigm was used in this study with qualitative descriptive approach as the method. The research subjects were the Expert Staff of the SDGs Program Implementation Team from Bappenas, the Manager of the Economic Pillars of the SDGs National Secretariat, the staff of the Papua Province Bappeda, and the Managing Editor of merdeka.com. Meanwhile the research objects were government communication system, information flow within government communication system, and communication’s obstacle related to the development of RAD in Papua Province.
