GGGI and the Government of Indonesia (GoI) launched the Indonesia Country Planning Framework on May 5, 2017 on the margins of the Asian Development Bank Annual Meeting in Yokohama, Japan. The CPF represents the two parties’ commitment to driving investment and green growth projects across the country through the implementation of two strategic objectives: 1) Capable institutions scale up green growth; and 2) Increased inclusive green investment in priority sectors leads to reduced emissions and healthier, more productive ecosystems.
The CPF outlines the opportunities for Indonesia to pursue a green growth development path by leveraging their greatest assets: abundant natural resources, a young and growing population and the political will and commitment to green growth. As a founding member of GGGI, GoI, under the leadership of the Ministry for National Development and Planning (BAPPENAS) has demonstrated its strong commitment to pursuing a path of growth that is sustainable, equitable and prosperous. In its current national medium-term development plan, the government aims for Indonesia to become a high-income country, enjoy an annual economic growth rate of 6-8%, experience a decline in the poverty rate, and sustain its natural resources and human capital.
The CPF builds on GGGI’s engagement in the country since 2013. During the first phase of GGGI’s program in Indonesia (2013-2015), GGGI and the GoI cooperated to 1) green the planning and investment processes; 2) collaborate with the REDD+ Agency on REDD+ for green growth; and 3) engage with government agencies on a subnational level to implement the aforementioned programs.
From 2016-2020 GGGI will collaborate with the GoI’s civil service training institute —the National Institute of Public Administration or Lembaga Administrasi Negara (LAN)—to integrate green and inclusive growth in its basic and advanced trainings, as well as in its high-level reform trainings, through which it will reach national and sub-national government officials. In addition, in order to increase green investment, GGGI will support the government in building investor confidence, attracting required capital, making sustainable green business models profitable in the existing sectors, and opening up new and untapped opportunities. GGGI will also support stakeholders in Indonesia to design projects for bankability.
The GGGI Indonesia country program has been made possible through the generous support of the Government of Norway.
