Conference “Concrete solutions to cope with climate change and achieve SDGs in Indonesia” [id]
Indonesia has become a frontrunner in the international limelight due to the country’s eagerness and commitment to reduce greenhouse emissions by 29% (41% with international support) against a business as usual scenario, by 2030. Therefore, Indonesia views comprehensive land and ocean-based climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts as a critical strategic consideration in achieving climate resilience in food, water and energy.
The country’s first Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), submitted to UNFCCC in November 2016, outlines the country’s transition to a low carbon and climate resilience future. The NDC describes the enhanced actions and the necessary enabling environment during the 2015-2019 periods that will lay the foundation for more ambitious goals beyond 2020.
On the occasion of the different climate-related global events organized and held between November and December of this year, whereby Indonesia is playing a major role (COP 23 in Bonn ; Paris conference on the two-year anniversary of the Paris Agreement) and also to mark the 10th anniversary of the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) in Indonesia, BAPPENAS and AFD are organizing a conference entitled “Concrete solutions to cope with climate change and achieve SDGs in Indonesia” that will take place on November, 27th, 2017 at Mandarin Hotel.
This conference aims at providing information for policy-makers, business leaders, and civil society organizations to discuss mitigation options, assess opportunities, prioritize actions, and develop strategies for meeting Indonesia’s climate change mitigation targets, taking into consideration the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The event is targeting public and private stakeholders, both contributing to Indonesian Government’s efforts to tackle climate change. At the same time, the conference is an opportunity to identify the Government’s expectations in terms of support and innovations, areas where development institutions could play a role to overcome climate change. The event will gather Indonesian and international experts from the public and private sector.
The debate will be structured around the Energy and AFOLU (Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use) round tables, as the two main sectors covered by the Indonesia NDC and the biggest contributors of greenhouse gas emissions.
