Climate and Biodiversity Hub Indonesia

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.

The ENDC was submitted to the UNFCCC on 23 September 2022. Indonesia's GHG emission reduction target increased from 29% to 31.89% (unconditional) and from 41% to 43.20% (conditional).-- Main highlights:
    • Policy and strategy documents:
      • Preparation of Near Zero Emission Waste (NZEW) 2050 document, KLHK, with milestones to reach near zero emission in the waste sector.

      • Ongoing preparation of the NBSAP framework post 2020 aligned to the long-term development plan 2025-2045, utilizing science-based background information on biodiversity and ecoregions.
      • Mid-term evaluation of the medium-term development plan 2020-2024 to track progress of the implementation of the low carbon development.
      • Input on the scenario modelling of low carbon development for green economy, with focus on the agriculture sector, for the formulation of the upcoming national development plans.
    • Capacity development:
      • EbA Capacity-Building Workshop on the design and use of monitoring and evaluation tools for EbA, in collaboration with the Global Project of Mainstreaming Ecosystem based Adaptation (EbA), KLHK, Ministry of Marine and Fisheries, and local governments.
