A step-by step guide to reducing and managing carbon emissions for businesses
Too late for two degrees? It’s time to plan for a warmer world.
Presidential Regulation No. 61 Year 2011 is an essential point of reference for any low carbon growth strategy.
The legislations that deals with environmental damage and the resulting penalties Law 32/2009 was enacted October 2009.
This important Ministerial Decree ratified by the Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources covers the new Feed In Tariff.
In May 2008 formal penalties were set out in this important regulation 18/2008 on waste management in Indonesia.
Indonesia has pledged to cut its carbon emissions by 26% from current levels by 2020. As the world’s third biggest carbon emitter, this equates to 767 million metric tons of carbon. Indonesia’s emissions profile is heavily dominated, some 78% in 2005, by emissions from land use change, forestry and peatland. However energy use, currently at around 9%, is also rapidly growing source.
The 2010 census data is critical for policy making as Indonesia embraces a low carbon future. UNFPA is currently building capacity of key policy makers and parliamentarians on how to use such data. Now available in English.
USAID/RDMA Report released
The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Regional Development Mission for Asia (USAID/RDMA) has released this comprehensive report which provides up-to-date data on energy and greenhouse gas emissions trends plus options for promoting low-carbon development in the region.
The report - which covers Asia’s six largest developing countries, China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam - was completed under the USAID/RDMA recently completed Environmental Cooperation-Asia Clean Development and Climate Program (ECO-Asia CDCP).
The authors note Asia’s developing country contributions to global carbon dioxide emissions are projected to increase from 33% to 45% of the world total between 2008 and 2030. Ongoing plans to significantly scale up fossil fuel-based energy, primarily coal, increasingly threaten regional and global energy security and environmental conditions.
The report identifies and ranks clean energy technologies with high potential for reducing energy demand and fossil fuel use. Energy efficiency measures are by far the most cost-effective options.
