UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, UNDP offers global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.”
UNDP Indonesia's mission is to be an agent for change in the human and social development of Indonesia. We aim to be a bridge between Indonesia and all donors as well as a trusted partner to all stakeholders. We work in four key areas of development: Governance Reforms, Pro-Poor Policy Reforms, Conflict Prevention and Recovery, and Environment Management, with the overarching aim of reducing poverty in Indonesia. Besides the four priority areas, UNDP Indonesia is also engaged in a variety of crosscutting initiatives focused on HIV/AIDS, gender equality, and information and technology for development.”
Despite impressive progress and ongoing efforts, Indonesia is still faced with a number of challenges in achieving sustainable development, which promotes economic and social development as well as environmental protection that benefits the entire population. The current economy of Indonesia is “brown,” which is based on energy intensity, high carbon, and exploitation of ecosystem services. This has resulted in rapid ecosystem degradation and unsustainable development. The Government of Indonesia (GoI) has been striving to achieve a transition from the current “brown” economy to green economy development pathways. To realize this, it is central to integrate the principles of green economy into the processes of policy decision making, namely planning, budgeting, monitoring and evaluation. GoI has demonstrated the commitment towards sustainable development by issuing three National Action Plans, namely National Action Plan to Reduce Emission Reduction (RAN-GRK), National Action Plan for Climate Change Adaptation (RAN-API) and Indonesia Biodiversity Strategic Action Plan (IBSAP).
The Sustainable Development Financing (SDF) – BIOFIN project is intended to support this transition process. The project will be implemented during 2014-2017 and is an umbrella project of UNDP for all climate & biodiversity financing projects in Indonesia. The project will be implemented by the Fiscal Policy Agency of the Ministry of Finance in close coordination with Bappenas, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Ministry of Home Affairs and Indonesia Institute of Sciences. The project targets three thematic areas: climate change mitigation, adaptation and Biodiversity. The aim of the project is to strengthen the capacities of the Government of Indonesia to green the budget process by development and application of budget tagging system, fiscal instruments and performance-based budgeting system to enhance implementation of three action plans; RAN/RAD GRK (climate mitigation), RAN API (climate adaptation) and IBSAP (biodiversity). The project consists of three regional/global UNDP projects: the UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative (PEI); Building Transformative Policy & Financing Frameworks to Increase Investment in Biodiversity Management (BIOFIN) funded by the European Union and the Federal Ministry of Environment of Germany; and Strengthening the Governance of Climate Finance to Benefit the Poor and Vulnerable funded by Swedish International Development Agency.
The project activities will focus on supporting effective implementation of RAN-GRK, RAN-API and IBSAP. The component activities include, but not limited to:
1. Put in place system to integrate biodiversity & ecosystem services, climate mitigation and adaptation in sectoral & development policy, planning & budgeting:
2. Assessing the financing & governance needs for the implementation of RAN-GRK, RAN-API and IBSAP.
