Background


Indonesia is characterized by high levels of emissions of greenhouse gases, which puts the country among the highest emitting countries globally. At the same time, the country is highly vulnerable to the negative impacts of climate change itself, with more than 17.000 islands and an impressive length of shoreline highly susceptible to sea level rise. This situation calls for a serious response, which the government of Indonesia gave by committing itself to reduce GHG emission by 26% in 2020 from the BAU level with its own efforts and reaching 41% reduction if it secures international support.
