Integrated Climate Change Strategy in Blitar

GHG Inventory – Blitar City 

Greenhouse Gas Inventory

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory is a description of GHG emission sources identified within a specific area. GHG inventory acts as tool to assist government on monitoring GHG production and environmental impact from climate change point of view. GHG inventory also provides a benchmark for planning and monitoring progress with emission reduction initiatives. 

The sources of GHG are carbondiokside (CO2), methane (CH4), dinitrokside (N2O), perfluorocarbon (HFCs) and sulfurheksafluoride (SF6) and GHG inventory normally calculated within tonnes CO2 equivalent (t CO2e). The scope GHG Inventory and sectors includes Energy (includes energy in industry, settlement, commercial and transportation), IPPU (the industrial process and product use), AFOLU (Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use) and Waste (solid and liquid) sector.

GHG emissions Blitar city by sector year 2012

Total GHG emission in Blitar city in year 2012 is 204,264 t CO2e. The largest contributor comes from energy sector which account for 156,504 t CO2e (77%), waste sector 34,469 t CO2e (17%) and AFOLU sector 13,291 t CO2e (6%). The detail of each subsector are as follows. 

GHG emissions from energy sector largely contributed by CO2 emissions from transportation, which is due to consumption of fossil fuels and followed by residential, commercial and others due to electricity consumption. 

GHG emissions comes from AFOLU sectors contributed from CH4 and N2O emissions by farming activities related to the manure management production, livestock and then followed by the rice cultivation activity. 

GHG emissions from waste sector largely contributed from CH4 emissions comes from activities in the landfill and wastewater treatment management.

Climate mitigation measures

Blitar city have developed Integrated City Climate Strategy (ICCS). Blitar city aims for emission reduction 

target of 11% compared to Business as Usual (BAU) scenario by 2020. The ICCS formulates several climate strategies aimed at mitigation and adaptation, includes:

  1. Improving Environmental Management using Participatory Approach

  2. Improving the Environmental Health Settlement

  3. Improving Preparedness and Disaster Relief

  4. Improving the Integrated Farming Management

  5. Improve Urban Facilities and Open green space

  6. Improving the Quality of Water Supply

  7. Improving the natural resources conservation and alternative energy development

  8. Improving energy efficiency effort within government and street lighting facility 

  9. Improving the Quality of Health Care and Family Planning

Some planned mitigation actions in Blitar city such as pollution control (bike to work), socialization of waste management, waste bank development, energy efficiency and saving in neighborhood and government official level, utilization of energy alternative, application of LED for energy efficient street lighting. 

Blitar City actively campaigning climate change issues through various media, such as radio and website and socialization up to sub district level and develop Kelompok Peduli Lingkungan to enduse environment issues taken into account within Musyarawah Perencanaan dan Pembangunan-Musrembang.  In implementing its climate change actions, Blitar City also cooperates with Mercy Corps on Asian City Climate Change Resilience Network (ACCCRN) program with Rockafeller Foundation. Blitar city is also chosen as pilot city for RAN-API.
