TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Indonesian government is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 41 percent or equivalent to more than 1.02 billion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) by 2030 with international support, stated Deputy Minister of Environment and Forestry Alue Dohong.

"In the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) document, Indonesia is committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 29 percent with business as usual (BAU), and by up to 41 percent with international assistance by 2030," he said as quoted in the press release of the Environment and Forestry Ministry received on Sunday.

"29 percent is equivalent to 826 million tons of CO2 and 41 percent is equivalent to more than 1.02 billion tons of CO2 by 2030," he added.

The deputy minister said that the Indonesian government and other members of the international community had adopted Paris Climate Agreement and had prepared an NDC that covers a projected potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

World Environment Day 2021, he said, was an opportunity to re-evaluate achievements and continue efforts to address environmental challenges, including efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

In commemoration of World Environment Day which falls on June 5, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry together with Scholar Synergy held the "Indonesia Climate Change Virtual Expo & Forum 2021" which started on Saturday (6/5).

The virtual event which will last for six months includes various programs designed to strengthen efforts to control the impact of climate change, including innovations to achieve national commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
