For most ASEAN Member Countries, natural resources are critical assets in development, and Indonesia is no exception. Indonesia’s recognition of the importance of sustainable use of its resources has been growing substantially since 2004, when the ’Long-term Development Plan 2005-2025’ underlined the need to achieve a “green and ever-lasting Indonesia”. This was further stressed by the current ‘Medium-term Development Plan’ (2010-2014), which contains specific policies and goals on mainstreaming sustainable development as well as natural resource and environmental management. This Plan addresses 10 major challenges for the country, one being ‘Effective Management of Natural Resources’. Based on these principles several SCP initiatives have been launched by the Government and the private sector, e.g. a Clean Energy Initiative, development of eco-labelling systems, a policy for green public procurement, and criteria for Environmentally Sound Technologies.
Mr. Edzard RUEHE,
The project is one of four national SCP policy support projects implemented within the framework of the SWITCH Asia Programme.
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the development and implementation of national policies on Sustainable Consumption and Production in Indonesia.
The purpose of the project is to promote integrated and coordinated approach in developing and implementing the national policies on Sustainable Consumption and Production by strengthening coordinated nation-wide SCP implementation and facilitating the development of SCP National Action Plan, implementing SCP policies effectively and identifying and evaluating options of financial mechanisms to promote SCP.
The project has three components:
1. Creating the framework for a consolidated national SCP policy
2. Support to SCP policy implementation
3. Financial mechanisms, incentives and policy instruments for SCP promotion
The GOI is committed to promote and enhance sustainable consumption and production patterns in Indonesia i.e. decoupling economic progress from resource use, decreasing resource intensity, avoiding negative impact on the environment.
The commitment of Indonesia towards SCP was demonstrated by the Minister of Environment who launched the 10YFP SCP Indonesia on 5.6.2013.
This SCP baseline study compiles and maps at the existing general “vision” in line with the sustainable development philosophy and SCP in particular. Secondly, the study provides an overview on the corresponding institutional framework: SCP is complex in nature, so every institution at all levels - operating nation-wide and/or at sub-national level - is a potential stakeholder for policy development, planning, implementation, monitoring. This effectively means: co-responsibility of different stakeholders. Thirdly, the study shows the mix of policy instruments in place and in the pipeline that is aiming at applying resource and impact decoupling.
