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: January 2020
Objective and activities
LAMA-I has supported 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 Presidential Decree had mandated all local government levels to develop plans as part of Indonesia's NAMA, but capacity to do so was unevenly distributed. Under the guidance of the National Planning and Development Agency (Bappenas), the project improved the methods used at local government level and supported capacity strenghening in strategically selected districts and provinces.
State of implementation/results
- Project completed
- The project supported BAPPENAS in conducting trainings and knowledge management.
- The project implemented four NAMAs on green growth initiatives in the two pilot provinces and supported the second iteration process of the regional climate plans (RAD-GRKs).
- The project facilitated the development of two software applications: (1) LUMENS - a planning tool for planning and analysing mitigation actions and (2) PEP-PPRK Online - a web-based tool for monitoring and evaluation process of RAD-GRK.
- Until 2017, the project held 85 trainings for six districts on low emission land use planning which were attended by 386 planners.
- 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.
- 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”.
- In 2017, the project presented information on low emissions development planning, monitoring and reporting as well as on NAMA developments in 15 events with more than 367 participants.
- 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.
