Green Economy and Locally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (GE-LAMA-I) in Indonesia: strengthening district-level capacity for reducing land-based emissions and greening of economy within RAD-GRK (NAMA) policy coordinated by National Planning and Developmen
As of: November 2018
Objective and activities
LAMA-I supports Indonesia’s global leadership in reducing land-based emissions through an integrated NAMA/REDD+ approach by strengthening capacity for local governments to combine development and spatial planning and to synergize climate-change mitigation and adaptation actions through multiple stakeholder negotiations. A recent Presidential Decree mandates all local government levels to develop plans as part of Indonesia's NAMA, but capacity to do so is unevenly distributed. Under the guidance of the National Planning and Development Agency (Bappenas), the project will improve the methods that can be used at local government level and support capacity strenghening in strategically selected districts and provinces.
State of implementation/results
- Project completed
- The project supported BAPPENAS in conducting trainings and knowledge management.
- For instance, the project supported the organization of a national workshop and a workshop on PEP Online and the introduction of RPRKD tools in East Kalimantan Province, and contributed to BAPPENAS’ Low Carbon Development Partnership (LCDP) Launch Event.
- Moreover, a developed tool, LUMENS (land use planning for multiple environmental services) assisted the revision of local mitigation action plans.
- Additionally, in collaboration with BAPPEDA (Provincial planning agency), the project developed guidelines for mainstreaming Green Economy into districts Mid-Term Plans (upscaling).
- NAMA concepts were presented at NAMAs Update meeting in Jakarta (POME, MORRE, Smart Agriculture, and Cocoa Agroforestry) and Green Economy concepts were presented in the Indonesia Pavilion at COP 21 in Paris under the title “Making Green Economy Work: exploring potential through mitigation actions”.
- BAPPENAS has hosted a final workshop for the GE-LAMA-I project, during which the Director for the Environmental Unit of BAPPENAS, Dr. Medrilzam, expressed his appreciation of the achievements of the project.
