Data Analyst For The Development Of Climate Finance Focal Point

Global Green Growth Institute

Jakarta, Indonesia

Currently, GGGI supports the Government of Indonesia (GoI) under the joint GoI-GGGI Green Growth Program (GGP, “the Program”). The Program aims to demonstrate that green investments can become the norm both for investors and planners, ultimately improving the quality of economic development for more environmental sustainability and social inclusion. Through the Program, GGGI collaborates with the Ministry of Development Planning (BAPPENAS), the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur (“PT SMI”) and others.

GGGI and the Fiscal Policy Agency (FPA) implement the Green Climate Fund (GCF) readiness and preparatory support project (“the Readiness Project”) in Indonesia. The FPA is the National Designated Authority (NDA) of the GCF in Indonesia, i.e., the agency through which Indonesia and the GCF interact and communicate. In September 2022, the FPA started the 3-year Readiness Project “Enhancing Indonesia's Access to International Climate Finance and Private Sector Investments for Climate Actions” (“Readiness III”) to support the NDA in enhancing national actors’ institutional capacities to build a pipeline of climate change projects and to increase country ownership. The NDA has selected GGGI as the Delivery Partner to implement this project. Overall, the Readiness Project aims to mobilize international climate finance and private sector investment to close the financing gap across the priority sectors identified by the Government of Indonesia. It consists of a range of activities with the objective of achieving readiness outcomes, one of which is to effectively implement GCF-funded activities.

One of the ways to establish systems and networks to support the implementation of GCF-funded activities is having a strong coordination mechanism with other climate funds. Aside from the FPA acting as NDA for GCF, the Government of Indonesia has appointed the Ministry of Environment and Forestry as the focal point of Global Environment Facility and Adaptation Fund. Indonesia has also formed national climate financing windows and entities. The Ministry of National Development Planning (PPN/Bappenas) has set up the Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF), PT Sarana Multi Infrastruktur (PT SMI) has established the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Indonesia One, and the recent establishment of Indonesia Environment Fund which operates under the Directorate General of Treasury, Ministry of Finance. The FPA as Indonesia NDA Secretariat to the GCF has initiated a formal coordination mechanism between these entities, called Climate Finance Focal Points (CFFP) coordination. The development of an online platform for this coordination is crucial to help align the information provided to the public, such as the ongoing projects and overall funding available for Indonesia.
