Since 2010, South-South Cooperation (SSC) has become part of Indonesia's foreign policy. This study seeks to answer how SSC cooperation in this decade can impact the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) program. The researcher uses a qualitative method with a descriptive analytical approach and an interactive method as an analytical tool to answer this. The SSC program within the framework of achieving the SDGs for a decade is divided into four broad categories, including people (SDG 1-5), prosperity (SDG 6-10), planet (11-15), peace, and partnership (SDG 16-17). The development for a decade of SSC will be the development of SSC in the future. SSC has become a vital modality and strategic tool for Indonesia to contribute to realizing the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and later developed into the SDGs.
