This briefing presents a list of opportunities for international finance to speed up net-zero transitions in Indonesia, one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gas emissions. It looks at key opportunities to overcome the largest bottleneck for Indonesia to achieve net-zero emissions: structural and coordination issues.

Summary

Structural issues relating to the partial and separate management of Net Zero Emission sectors are the largest bottleneck for Indonesia to achieve net-zero emissions. However, opportunities arise to respond to these challenges from new emerging trends namely blended finance, a Just Transition for all (starting with the energy sector) and multi-level engagement and coordination, especially at the sub-national level.
