The Green Growth Program Indonesia is implemented jointly by the Government of Indonesia and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) through the Ministry of National Development Planning (BAPPENAS), and involves a number of national and sub-national governments. The organogram will provide visual details on how the program supports its key stakeholders.
Indonesia is a founding member of GGGI, which was established in 2012 on the belief that economic growth and environmental sustainability are not merely compatible objectives. In reality, their integration is essential for the future of humankind.
Since 2013, the program has strived to develop strategies and approaches for green growth, which has been made possible through financial support from the Government of Norway in Phase I (2013-2015) and Phase II (2016-2019).
The National Green Growth Roadmap has become a reference in Indonesia for green growth planning, investment and performance monitoring.
Indonesia has enjoyed strong and consistent economic growth of around 6% per annum over the past 15 years. The nation aims to become a high-income country in the 2030s. This requires continued rapid yet inclusive and sustainable economic growth to provide a high standard of living to all citizens.
The ambitious social and economic goals are expressed in the National Medium-term Development Plan (RPJMN 2015-2019) with priorities in economic growth, food and energy security, poverty reduction, and natural resource management. The Green Growth Program continues putting serious efforts in ensuring the RPJMN reflects greener growth and greener progress. These priorities reflect the nation’s urgent development needs as well as Indonesia’s international commitments to realize its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
It is therefore essential for Indonesia to apply green growth principles, concepts and approaches to help the country realize these ambitious goals.
The Green Growth Program supports Indonesia in realizing the ambitious goals of strong, sustainable landscapes and inclusive economic growth in three priority sectors of sustainable energy, sustainable landscapes and sustainable infrastructure in Special Economic Zones (SEZs) by working toward the following outcomes:
The above outcomes are stated and further elaborated upon in the Country Planning Framework (CPF) as agreed upon between the Government of Indonesia and GGGI, outlining the two-party commitments to driving investment and green growth projects across the country.
To ensure the quality and direction of the program, a multi-stakeholder Steering Committee comprising representatives of government agencies, private sector associations, civil society organizations and several prominent individuals was established in 2014 through a BAPPENAS Ministerial Decree.
Chaired by BAPPENAS, the Steering Committee oversees the program’s strategic direction and ensures its alignment with targets in the National Medium-term Development Plan (RPJMN).
