Indonesia’s updated NDC increases its emissions reduction targets for 2030

27 Sep 2022

Indonesia has unveiled its new updated nationally determined contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement, which increases the country’s 2030 emission reduction target from 29% to 31.89% (unconditionally) and from 41% to 43.2% (conditionally), compared to a business-as-usual (BAU) scenario. Indonesia’s previous targets were set in its July 2021 updated NDC.

Unconditionally, Indonesia will reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 915 MtCO2eq compared to a BAU scenario, to reach 1,953 MtCO2eq of emissions in 2030. Conditionally, the country could reduce its GHG emissions by 1,240 MtCO2eq compared to a BAU scenario, to reach 1,632 MtCO2eq of emissions in 2030. The most significant reductions will be focused on the energy and forestry sectors.

In the energy sector, Indonesia’s updated NDC plans a reduction of emissions of 358 MtCO2eq (12.5%, unconditional) and 446 MtCO2eq (15.5%, conditional). In the forestry and other land uses sector, the country plans a reduction of emissions of 500 MtCO2eq (17.4%, unconditional) and 729 MtCO2eq (25.4%, conditional).

Indonesia presented this enhanced NDC as a transition towards the country’s second NDC, which will be aligned with Indonesia’s Long-Term Low Carbon and Climate Resilience Strategy to 2050, with a target to achieve net-zero emission by 2060 or sooner.
