Climate Change Description:

Indonesia has prepared a Presidential Regulation for a National Action Plan For Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions (Rencana Nasional Penurunan Emisi Gas Rumah Kaca, “RAN-GRK”) that will provide the basis for various related Ministries/Institutions as well as the regional and local governments, private sectors and civil society to implement activities that will directly and indirectly reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It sets out the different sectors in which Indonesia will make emissions reductions, namely Forestry and Peat land, Agriculture, Energy and Transportation, Industry and Waste Management. The Provinces are expected to make their own action plans within one year, and have these formalised within a governor’s decree.

This regulation is prepared as a follow-up to Indonesia’s commitment, which was presented by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in his speech at the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh, United States, on 25th September 2009. The President established a target for Indonesia of a 26% reduction in GHG emissions below “Business-as-Usual” by 2020, based on unilateral actions, and a further reduction of up to 41% below “Business-as-Usual,” if adequate international support were made available to the Government of Indonesia. 

The objectives of National Action Plan in respect to mitigation are as follows:

  • To design programs and activities in order to reduce the GHG emissions, particularly in forestry and peatland, agriculture, energy, industry and transportation, as well as waste sectors. This shall be done at national and regional levels within the framework of sustainable development.
  • To serve as a guidance on investment relating to coordinated GHG emission reduction at national and regional levels;
  • The easiness of implementation by taking into account the political, social and cultural aspects;
  • In line with the national and the regional development priorities in the activity location;
  • Based on the principle of mutual benefits by prioritizing development/activity programs that contributed to the GHG emission reduction (co‐benefit).
