Climate and Biodiversity Hub Indonesia
As of: October 2021
Indonesia is severely affected by climate change impacts and harbours unique biodiversity that is under threat. At the same time, the archipelago is one of the ten largest greenhouse gas emitters in the world and plays an important role in achieving the Paris Climate Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The project supports the Indonesian government in mainstreaming its climate and biodiversity policies into national development planning. To this end, it trains staff of relevant line ministries and strengthens cooperation with civil society and academia. The project also advises on improving competencies for transparent reporting, financial resource mobilisation and knowledge exchange with the international community. As an IKI interface project, it is responsible for networking and communication between the implementing organisations of IKI projects in Indonesia.
