Jakarta – A planning document outlining targets, policies and action steps for greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions until 2030, titled Indonesia’s FOLU Net Sink 2030, has been implemented down to the site level, according to an official from the Ministry of Forestry and Environment (MoEF).
Indonesia’s FOLU Net Sink 2030 as stated in the Long-Term Strategy for Low Carbon and Climate Resilience 2050 (Indonesia’s LTS-LCCR 2050) and Indonesia’s commitment to the Paris Agreement or Enhanced Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC 2030), has been mandated in Presidential Regulation No. 98 of 2021 on the Implementation of Carbon Economic Value for Achieving the Nationally Determined Contribution Target and Controlling Greenhouse Gas Emissions in National Development.
Hanif Faisol Nurofiq, Director General of Forestry and Environmental Planning at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KHLK), said implementing the local policy is the Climate Village Programme. Through this programme, communities at the village, sub-district or village level take concrete actions to control climate change, such as land rehabilitation, urban farming, and circular economy development. There are already work plans in 28 provinces for implementing the FOLU Net Sink 2030 policy.
“There are about 7,000 ProKlim (climate villages) across Indonesia,” he said in a talk at the Environment, Climate, Forestry and Renewable Energy (LIKE) Festival organised by KLHK on 16 September. ProKlim is a MoEF programme that involves active community participation to implement integrated climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, to support national GHG emission reduction targets and increase community resilience to climate change impacts.
