Overall Objective

GGGI’s role and objective in Indonesia is to assist the Government of Indonesia in delivering green growth by driving investment and designing green projects with social, environmental and economic benefits for the people of Indonesia.

Strategic Outcome Targets

GHG Reductions 600 Mt CO2 emission reductions and avoidance by 2020
Sustainable Services 9.86 million people gain access to green energy by 2020

Context

Indonesia has enjoyed strong and consistent economic growth of around 6% per annum over the past 15 years. The nation aims to become a high-income country in the 2030s. This will require continued rapid economic growth. As President Joko Widodo has said, growth needs to be people-centered to provide a high standard of living to all citizens, in all parts of the country.

The collaborative Green Growth Program between the Government of Indonesia and GGGI is designed to support Indonesia to reach its goals and priorities, as well as its global SDGs and NDC commitments. Phase I of the Green Growth Program started in 2013 and concluded in 2015. It set the stage for a more investment and implementation-oriented approach—one that utilizes and builds on the capacities developed under the program’s first phase—to deliver bankable green projects and access climate finance and green finance more broadly, within three focus sectors of energy, special economic zones (SEZ) and forest-and-land-based mitigation. Consolidated by the Country Planning Framework (CPF) between the Government of Indonesia and GGGI, in the period 2016-2020, the joint ‘Green Growth Secretariat’ facilitates green investment from public and private sources while enhancing sustainability, replication and institutional capacity.
