The National Council on Climate Change (DNPI) is coordinating the UN CC:Learn Project in Indonesia.
The UN CC:Learn Project in Indonesia
The UN CC:Learn Project in Indonesia was initiated in 2012 and is being implemented over a period of 18 months. The Project aims to foster a systematic and country-driven process to strengthen human resources and skills to advance green, low emission and climate resilient development. It is implemented under the leadership of the National Council on Climate Change (DNPI) with support by UN CC:Learn. A first important milestone in the Project is the development of a National Strategy to Strengthen Human Resources and Skills to Advance Green, Low Emission and Climate Resilient Development.
Specific activities and outputs so far include:
National Planning Workshop, 9 October 2012
UN CC:Learn @ Carbon Up-date, 5-7 November 2012
The 3rd Indonesia Carbon Up-date, 5-7 November 2012, Jakarta, Indonesia provided a forum to exchange on the progress of Indonesia in terms of climate change mitigation in various sectors. One of the sessions focused on capacity development and provided an opportunity to discuss and receive feedback on emerging areas for Priority Action to be included in the National Strategy. Indonesia currently accounts for approximately 5% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. A DNPI study shows that Indonesia has the potential to reduce its GHG emissions by 2.3 Gt by 2030, representing a reduction of 46% from 2005 levels. There are many opportunities to cut emissions further, but such deep cuts require significant investments as well as individual and institutional capacities.
Workshop on Results-Based Priority Action, 14 February 2013
The National Council on Climate Change (DNPI) of the Government of Indonesia held a workshop on 14 February 2013 with over 62 participants representing 15 government ministries and agencies, 7 UN agencies (UNESCO, FAO, ILO, WHO, UNORCID, UNEP, UNITAR), the UN Resident Coordinator (RC) Office, 3 universities (University of Indonesia, University of Sriwijaya, Bandung Institute of Technology), NGOs and the private sector, to review progress on development of a National Learning Strategy to address climate change. Participants reached a common understanding of the objectives of the Strategy and its priorities. Read more...
Plans for 2013
The Strategy is expected to be launched at a high-level launch event in February 2013. UN CC:Learn will support the implementation of a number of initial Priority Action. Additional support for the short and long-term implementation of the Strategy is sought from national and international partners.
