Forest fires, deforestation and the degradation of forests and peatland have contributed to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions in Indonesia. At the same time, being an archipelago, Indonesia is vulnerable to other climate change impacts. Since 2011, UN CC:Learn has been working with the Indonesian government and other stakeholders to improve climate change learning in the country and be better equipped to deal with these challenges.

Building and Implementing a National Climate Change Learning Strategy

Following consultation and engagement of key stakeholders, Indonesia’s National Climate Change Learning Strategy was launched in 2013. It focuses on three key areas:

  • building personal and institutional capacity to address climate change,
  • integrating climate change in the national education system, and
  • improving awareness and knowledge about climate change.

The strategy is referenced and included in the policies and programmes of the sectors and institutions participating in the National Action Plan on Climate Change Adaptation (RAN-API) and the National Action Plan on Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction (RAN-GRK).

The strategy is available in English and can be downloaded below:

Our National Partners

Our work in Indonesia is coordinated by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. The National Coordination Mechanism also comprised non-governmental stakeholders such as universities and civil society organizations.

Students working in groups of 5 reflect on how they can address climate change in their daily lives.
