The Environment Deputies Meeting and Climate Sustainability Working Group (EDM-CSWG) series of G20 member countries culminated in a Joint Environment Climate Ministers’ Meeting (JECMM) on August 31, 2022, in Bali. This meeting led to multiple agreements addressing environmental and climate change issues, which are summarized in a 50-paragraph chair summary of the JECMM.
In the CSWG session, three priorities were defined by six studies.
As the study coordinator, GGGI collaborates with several international organizations that form the editorial team and the NDC Partnership in supporting the development of the studies. These studies were the foundation for discussions and the G20 Environment and Climate Change Ministers’ joint agreement, the primary document produced during the meetings. Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya expressed that the workshop’s outcome could be a basis for G20 policy development during the JECMM.
Laksmi Dhewanthi, the Director General of Climate Change (DG CC) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), officially launched the CSWG studies on September 23, 2022. In her opening remarks, DG CC expressed her gratitude to GGGI and the other international organizations that contributed to the development of CSWG studies. Furthermore, she emphasized the studies’ importance as a reference for discussions and developing building blocks that can be adopted in a joint ministerial agreement.
The launch event was attended online and offline by GGGI Indonesia’s Country Representative and representatives from UNDP, GIZ, UNICEF, UNESCAP, IRENA, Cambridge Econometrics, and Wuppertal Institut. The studies are now available on the Directorate General of Climate Change, MoEF website.
