Indonesia Climate Data Explorer (CAIT Indonesia), or Platform Interaktif untuk Data Iklim (PINDAI) in Indonesian, an interactive climate data platform for monitoring provincial climate commitments in Indonesia. CAIT Indonesia is part of WRI’s CAIT Climate Data Explorer, one of the most trusted sources of climate data available, which provide free access to comprehensive, reliable and comparable climate-relevant data sets.

CAIT Indonesia allows users can track, monitor and compare provincial historical and projected emissions, climate actions plan, and other climate data and information for all 34 provinces in Indonesia. This includes:

  • Emissions profiles of all 34 provinces in Indonesia. Users can learn the top emitting provinces of absolute, per capita and intensity emissions based on publicly available data from the Indonesian government.
  • Primary source of emissions in each province. Each province in Indonesia has unique landforms and economic activities and hence sources of emission differ by province. Understanding this will help not only local governments to come up with the most efficient approach to reduce emissions, but also non-state actors to support this process.
  • Climate commitments in each province so users can better understand provincial mitigation and adaption activities.
  • Provincial development goals. Users can monitor whether a provincial climate commitment is in line with its development priorities (Regional Mid-term Development Planning). By comparing the two, civil society can observe not only alignments but also contradictions or other forms of discrepancy between the province’s development and climate action plans.
  • Progress towards reduction target, which allows users to monitor whether provinces are on track to achieve their emission reduction target.

CAIT Indonesia uses official data and information from Indonesian government agencies. Provincial emissions profiles, sources of emissions and climate commitments are derived from the Regional Action Plan to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions (RAD-GRK) and the Ministry of Environment and Forestry’s SIGN SMART (Sistem Inventarisasi Gas Rumah Kaca Nasional: Sederhana, Mudah, Akurat, Ringkas, & Transparan), provincial development goals data are generated from the Regional Mid-term Development Plan (RPJMD) and progress of reduction target information is obtained from the Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting (MER) document.

Overall, the platform aims to encourage transparency and participatory development management by being a channel to improve public understanding of any issues of climate data and information at the provincial level. Finally, it aims to help government agencies to identify and implement priority emission reduction measures while increasing emissions reduction ambition over time.
