Project Overview

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations on behalf of the German Government. We work to shape a future worth living in over 120 countries around the world.


Indonesia plays an important role in achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The country is one of the ten largest green house gas Emitters worldwide with emissions projected to more than double by 2030 (compared to 2010) following the business as usual (BAU) scenario. In addition, being an archipelagic state, Indonesia is severely impacted by the consequences of climate change. The Government of Indonesia is highly motivated to contribute to the achievement of the Paris Agreement by reaching the greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets determined in the country’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC): 29% compared to BAU by 2030 using national resources and up to 41% with international support. Within its Mid-term National Development Plan (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah Nasional, RPJMN 2020-2024), the Government of Indonesia aims for a GHG emission reduction of 27.3% compared to the baseline by 2024. However, the Climate Transparency Report 2020 states that Indonesia’s emission pathway is not compatible with the Paris Agreement but would lead to a warming of between 3°C and 4°C. For this reason, ambition raising in the mid and long-term is inevitable.


The country’s climate and biodiversity policies are currently challenged by the economic recession induced by COVID-19. BAPPENAS aims for and is promoting the inclusion of low-carbon development to the national recovery program. The effective monitoring of the implementation of LCDI/a green RPJMN measures is also required to enhance its already existing monitoring systems like the Application for Planning and Monitoring of Indonesia’s Low Carbon Development (Aplikasi Perencanaan dan Pemantauan Pembangunan Rendah Karbon Indonesia, AKSARA) and the system for Monitoring and Evaluation for Development Planning (MONEV). This needs to be accompanied by an effortless integration of data from the various monitoring databases and applications of other ministries.


Against this background, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the Indonesian Ministry for National Development Planning (BAPPENAS) agreed to jointly implement the Climate and Biodiversity Hub Indonesia Project.  The project aims to support the Indonesian government in strengthening the mainstreaming and implementation of its climate and biodiversity policy, as well as Bappenas’ s role as think tank and clearing house in climate and biodiversity policy.  Policy advise, capacity building and interministerial exchange will support the advancement of climate and biodiversity policy planning and implementation as well as mainstreaming with national development planning. This is accompanied by the improvement of transparency capacities, strengthened resource mobilization and the sharing and exchange of knowledge with the international community. Also, the project will function as the interface of the International Climate Initiative (IKI), BMU in Indonesia facilitating networking and communication between project implementers and with the Indonesian government.
