Objective and activities
Setting up a national MRV system to comply with the reporting obligations of the Paris Agreement (Article 13/2015), IDN faces challenges of realigning several existing databases incl. data collection. The project supports the Indonesian government, particularly BAPPENAS, in the development of a standardized MRV system of mitigation measures: 1) support national/sub-national stakeholders in the integration of existing tool (PEP) into a national MRV system, including the development of institutional arrangements; 2) support the Secretariat of the National Action Plan on Reduction (RAN-GRK) of collecting standardized data that is consistent with international guidelines and building a comprehensive data management system; 3) strengthening capacities for national and sub-national stakeholders in reporting on mitigation measures. The project will work closely with BAPPENAS (lead ministry for implementation of RAN-GRK) and, with other actors (in particular KLHK and the Ministry of the Interior).
