The international community appreciates the policy and operational measures that Indonesia has undertaken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. At the Indonesian Pavilion at COP22 on Monday (11/14/2016), Minister of Environment and Forestry Siti Nurbaya said that international representatives lauded Indonesia at negotiations and other meetings held during COP22: “our efforts, policies, and operational measures to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have been widely appreciated.”
COP22 is held from the 07th to the 18th of November 2016. The aim of the conference was to discuss the implementation of the Paris Agreement. As part of the Paris Agreement, each country must set out GHG emissions reduction targets, as part of a strategy to keep global temperature increases below 2 degrees above pre-industrial levels.
Minister Siti Nurbaya explained that many of the policies and operational steps that Indonesia has taken in 2016 have had a direct impact on the reduction of emissions. This includes moratoriums, the restoration of peat, forest fire control and prevention, and curbing deforestation. All policy and operational measures have been set out with clear indicators that can be measured, monitored, and verified.
Minister Siti also asserted that policies to reduce emissions in Indonesia have not been applied for other countries. All legislation has been created in view of the welfare of the Indonesian people, but is also in line with international standards.
In regards to materials related to the conference, Minister Siti Nurbaya has also advised the Indonesian negotiation team to elaborate on the country’s achievements, including the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Last month, the Indonesian Parliament ratified the Paris Agreement, and NDC documents have been submitted to the UNFCCC secretariat. She further said, “Indonesia has launched a national registry system to control climate change (Sistem Registri Nasional Pengendalian Perubahan Iklim (SRN PPI)) to assess emissions reduction efforts in each sector.” The system was built to be easily used anywhere, on devices such as computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
SRN PPI is a management system that provides data and web-based information on actions and resources relating to climate change adaptation and mitigation in Indonesia. The system aims to
1) document the actions and resources for climate change adaptation and mitigation,
2) publicise government recognition of contributions from various stakeholders to control climate change through adaptation, mitigation, finance, technology, and capacity building in Indonesia,
3) provide data and information to the public on adaptation and mitigation resources and on achievements, and
4) avoid double counting so as to better applied the principles of clarity, transparency, and understanding (CTU).**
