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 19 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 was 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:

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.
