Climate Mitigation Policy Advice

 

Legally binding policies and standards at a national level that promote energy conservation and energy efficient technologies are basic requirements for the mitigation of greenhouse gases. The Indonesian government therefore initiated the development of a set of strategies, policy instruments, action plans and market-based incentives geared towards GHG reduction and a sustainable economy.PAKLIM I supported the design of framework conditions on national and local level for the implementation of climate mitigation and adaptation measures. Work Area one supported the development of plans and strategies on the national level, to design certain modes of operation. Simultaneously, work area two conducted pilot projects on the local level, providing valuable experiences and insights that fed into a rich pool of models and tools, which can be adapted to meet local challenges and needs appropriately.

Following a three-level approach, PAKLIM II now merges the work on the national and the local level, to enable the governments on the provincial level to implement the climate mitigation measures effectively. This strategy allows us to include a multitude of stakeholders from several different political arenas and to connect their expertise and insights.

PAKLIM II aims to upscale the efforts of PAKLIM I, by disseminating best practices and strategies. A major challenge is to develop climate funding options to ensure the sustainability of the mitigation measures. Therefore, PAKLIM II continues to support the development of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) by the government of Indonesia. Furthermore, a concept for an effective monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) system needs to be developed, to track the impact of the climate mitigation measures.
