Indonesia has updated its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat prior to COP-21, which outline its general policies and long term strategy on low carbon and climate resilience.
The updated NDC reflects the progression beyond the existing NDC particularly in the following standpoints:
1. Enhanced ambition on adaptation as elaborated in the programmes, strategies and actions to achieve economic, social and livelihood, and ecosystem and landscape resilience, as depicted in Annex 2.
2. Enhanced clarity on mitigation by adopting the Paris Agreement rule book (Katowice Package) on information to be provided in NDC, as well as updated policies which potentially contribute to additional achievement of NDC target.
3. National context that relates the existing condition, milestones along with national development for the period of 2020-2024, and indicative pathways towards long- term vision (Visi Indonesia 2045 and the Long-Term Strategy on Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Development 2050).
4. Translating the Paris Agreement Rule Book (Katowice Package) into Indonesia’s context with a view to enhance effectiveness and efficiency in implementing the agreement and in communicating its progress and achievement as part of the responsibility of the party to the agreement. This includes elaborated chapters on transparency framework at the national level (National Registry System as the backbone of transparency framework), and means of implementation (finance, technology development and transfer, and capacity building).
