Indonesia Pledged to Reduce Emissions

Bogor, September 28, 2015

In a report submitted to the United Nations on Thursday (24/9), Indonesia pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent by 2030. The target will rise to 41 percent if international support, including financial aid and clean technology.

Emission reduction target will be achieved partly by improving forest conservation. Because the majority of Indonesia's emissions caused by peat fires and burning of forests to agricultural land, corporate development or oil palm plantations.

The government said that Indonesia also plans to increase the contribution of sustainable energy to at least 23 percent before 2025.
