The Government of Indonesia has committed to reducing the level of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 29% unconditionally with a target date of 2030 against the business as usual (BAU) scenario and conditionally up to 41% with international support, as listed in the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) document. Without any mitigation policy or baseline scenario, Indonesia’s emissions level will increase from 1.334 million tons of CO2e in 2010 to 2.869 million tons of CO2e in 2030.

In achieving the NDC target, it requires the participation of various parties, both the national and subnational governments, as well as non-governmental stakeholders. In this case, the right policies also require adequate and effective funding resources which are very important to finance climate change action and development.

Based on the NDC document submitted by the Government of Indonesia, under the Counter Measure-1 (CM1) and Counter Measure-2 (CM2), forestry sector is expected to contribute 17.2% while the energy sector is expected to contribute 11% in achieving the emissions reduction target by 29%. Thus, these two sectors will contribute up to 28% and the remaining 1% of emissions reduction targets will be supported by three other sectors (waste, IPPU, and agriculture)

The above policy brief is an initial analysis which utilized CBT data at sub-national level, aiming to identify the contribution of local government in the Nationally Determined Contribution’s implementation.
