Former Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on Thursday called on the international community to devise creative and innovative solutions in financing, technology transfer and development cooperation to step up the fight against climate change. The new chair of the Council of the Global Green Growth Institute stressed the need for more action to achieve sustainable growth in the face of mounting “man-made” challenges such as resource scarcity, population growth, loss of biodiversity and deforestation. “We must act in response to these challenges because they will be our legacy,” Yudhoyono said in his opening remarks at an international conference on environmentally friendly economic development hosted by the Seoul-based organization in Incheon. “As these challenges are man-made, their solutions will also be man-made. The solutions will be made by the choices people make ― policymakers, investors, business leaders and consumers.” Yudhoyono, 65, was officially elected as chair at a council meeting a day earlier with the consensus of 22 member countries, succeeding former Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen. He led the Southeast Asian country from 2004-14 and currently also teaches national defense at Indonesian Defense University.
