GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE dynamics profoundly affects production and consumption supply chains. The dynamics are seen not only as a result of development that does not apply the principles of sustainability but at the same time regarded as the momentum to reorient development towards an inclusive and just of low carbon emission development pathways as well as adapted to unprecedented challenges of their immediate and future impacts.
These realms have prompted numerous attempts at global and national level. At the global level includes Sustainable Development Goals (UN, 2015), Development Fund (Addis Ababa, 2015), the Paris Agreement (UNFCCC, 2015), Sendai Framework of Disaster Risk Reduction (UNSCIRD, 2015) and various other commitments are expressed directly by the various non-governmental organizations. At the national level including the establishment of a target to reduce greenhouse gas emission channeled through the National Action Plan/Regional Mitigation and adaptation as well as the development of various means of implementation instruments including funding, capacity building and technology transfer.
Also, the acknowledging of non-state actors at all level of governance indicate that there are rooms to articulate diverse interests in the framework of sustainability agenda.
Indonesia has made several important progress in promoting the global agenda, particularly on global climate change and related issue such as sustainable development goals, disaster risk reduction, as well as financing for development. Since Conference of the Parties (COP)-13 of United Nations Framework on Climate Change (UNFCCC) held in Bali in 2007, Indonesia has also been engaging in the forefront of global negotiation as well as translating the ideas into national context.
The "engagement" proposal is the triggered by four most recent progress in many areas:
A long series of discussions among key stakeholders who recognized the importance of information and knowledge exchange in promoting sustainability agenda, in particular on related issues of climate change, labor market impacts, green jobs and sustainable development goals (SGGs).
Significant actions have been made at various level of governance that need to be consolidated as a basis for further profound transformation towards a just low emission development pathway.
ICT advances in many areas that enable unimagined connections that did not happened in the past will also influence the future works, less carbon footprint.
Also, the acknowledging of social partners, including non-state actors at all level of governance indicate that there are rooms to articulate diverse interests in the framework of sustainability agenda.
As part of our vision to enlightening society towards Greener Indonesia movement by the time of global climate change and related agreements ratified in 2015 and beyond, Green Voice Foundation (GVF) are delighted to introduce Indonesia Green Engagement 2016, as part of our engagement to promote and encourage key stakeholders and general public in joining global movement on sustainability agenda.
