Since 2013 the Government of Indonesia – GGGI Green Growth Program has engaged stakeholders to develop a systematic framework to integrate green growth objectives into economic planning in Indonesia. Through the Program, in collaboration with the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Green Growth Assessment Process (GGAP) and extended Cost Benefit Analysis (eCBA) were developed as analytical tools, to provide a qualitative and quantitative analysis of the economic, social and environmental impacts of projects. When applying these tools, national and subnational government as well as investors will have a better understanding of, not only the costs, but also the benefits associated with green growth-oriented policy and technological interventions.
The development of this handbook was part of the extended Cost-Benefit Analysis (eCBA) Training and Module Development Project funded by GGGI Indonesia. An earlier version of this handbook has been developed by GGGI Indonesia and this updated version was prepared by a team of experts from the Center for Economics and Development Studies (CEDS), Universitas Padjadjaran in collaboration with the Economy & Environment Institute Indonesia (EEI-Indonesia), and was made possible by Norway’s International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI).
This handbook provides recommendations to integrate green growth assessment tools into Indonesia’s existing economic and environmental planning and regulatory processes, in the hope that it will be useful to policymakers, investors and the wider public when planning and shaping investment projects in Indonesia.
