The Indonesian Journal of Development Planning (Jurnal Perencanaan Pembangunan/JPP) is an international journal published by the Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) that collaborates with the Indonesia Development Planners Association (Perkumpulan Perencana Pembangunan Indonesia/PPPI). The tagline is bridging knowledge to policy (bridging knowledge and science to make better government programs, regulations and other policies).
This journal originally was initiated by the Minister of Development Planning/Head of Bappenas - Professor Saleh Afif- with the name of Buletin Perencanaan Pembangunan/BPP (Bulletin of Development Planning) in 1990. Then in 1994, Minister Ginanjar Kartasasmita revived this bulletin under the name Majalah Perencanaan Pembangunan/MPP (Magazine of Development Planning ).
In the period of 2015-2017, the Ministers, Andrinof Chaniago, Sofyan Djalil, and Bambang S Brodjonegoro encouraged MPP to transform into an academics journal as one of government think tank tools. Then in the year 2017, the publication officially became Jurnal Perencanaan Pembangunan (The Indonesian Journal of Development Planning).
