Net Zero Framework for Indonesian Provinces

Connected Places Catapult is collaborating with the British Embassy in Indonesia and the UK-Indonesia Consortium for Interdisciplinary Sciences (UKICIS) under an FCDO funded project in five provinces: DKI Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java and Bali. It follows on from the Catapult’s previous work on Innovating for Clean Air Project Electric Mobility in Indonesia. The aim of the collaboration is to produce a framework identifying emissions reduction progress made to date and potential challenges in these regions, as well as opportunities for UK and Indonesian innovative solution providers to address them to help meet regional and national greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. This framework will be used to analyse and assess Indonesian provinces’ progress on meeting emissions targets and how these regions can improve their performance.

Following on from the UK-hosted COP 26, this project has provided an evidence base linking carbon emissions reduction performance of Indonesian regions with smart-and innovation-based interventions that can be delivered in partnership with the UK. It also helped create wider understanding in Indonesia about the positive aspects of engaging with the emissions reduction (Net Zero) agenda, and how it is linked to many key economic goals of national and local governments in the country. The recommendations of the report have laid an evidence base for future collaboration between the UK and Indonesia to improve regional Net Zero performance while supporting the wider socio-economic goals of the country.

The final report have been available in both English and Bahasa Indonesian following a virtual report launch to disseminate research findings and recommendations to decisionmakers and industry stakeholders and foster future UK-Indonesian collaborations.
