It Is About Climate Change

Now, I will share the article from http://www.un.or.id, hope it can be useful :)

Climate change is one of the major challenges of our time. From shifting weather patterns that threaten food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of catastrophic flooding, the impact of climate change is global in scope and unprecedented in scale. Indonesia is no exception: the frequency of severe flooding in Papua and of critically low yields of crops in NTT are warning signs of the climate change threat in this country. Adapting to climate change and mitigating its effects will be more difficult and costly the longer this challenge is ignored.





While climate change affects everyone, its negative impacts are more severely felt by poor people. In Indonesia, landslides caused by rains in deforested lands affect mostly the rural poor. Restoring and maintaining key ecosystems can help communities in their adaptation efforts while also creating jobs.

Climate Change management is a top priority for the Government of Indonesia. The National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN 2010-2014) highlights the importance of conservation, and utilization of the natural environment to support sustainable economic growth and increased welfare of the people. To anticipate the impact of climate change the Government is working on pollution and emission controls, reducing deforestation, peat lands management improvements and environmental rehabilitation. In support of these efforts, the Government seeks to increase climate change funding sources and to improve the coordination among related ministries.

 

The President of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has made a strong commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 26 percent by 2020, with additional 15 percent reduction contingent upon international support. Indonesia's commitment to this reduction of emissions was initially announced by the President in Pittsburgh in September 2009 during a meeting of G20 states, and reaffirmed in Copenhagen during the Summit on Climate Change in December 2009. This commitment was incorporated in the National Action Plan to Reduce GHG Emissions (RAN-GRK).
