How Can Indonesia Achieve Its Climate Change Mitigation Goal?
An Analysis of Potential Emissions Reductions from Energy and Land-Use Policiesby , , , , , and -
Indonesia is one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases (GHG). Currently, the land-use and energy sector contribute to 80 percent of GHG in Indonesia. The national government has committed to unconditionally reducing GHG emissions by 29 percent against a 2030 business-as-usual case and up to 41 percent with international assistance. This paper provides information to understand mitigation options, assess opportunities, prioritize actions, and develop strategies for meeting Indonesia’s climate targets. As the first publicly available study that quantifies the emissions abatement potential of mitigation policies in Indonesia, the study seeks to answer the following questions:
To what extent would existing mitigation policies and targets in Indonesia’s land-use and energy sectors contribute to the mitigation goals set in its NDC?
To what extent would strengthened policies and targets in the land-use and energy sectors contribute to the mitigation goals set in its NDC?
