Head UK Climate Change Unit and DFID Indonesia
We work in Indonesia on climate change and sustainable development.
Indonesia is one of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gases with the highest global rate of deforestation. The UKCCU was established to reduce GHG emissions from Indonesia. 80% of the emissions come from land use change and deforestation.
In March 2011, the UK Climate Change Unit (UKCCU) Indonesia was launched. UKCCU was established to support delivery of the UK’s climate change goals in a vitally important context. Indonesia is a G20 partner, a strong and growing economy which has made enormous gains in poverty reduction in the last 20 years but more than 28 million Indonesians still live below the poverty line. Indonesia is also a global top 5 emitter of greenhouse gases, is home to some of the highest levels of biological diversity in the world and has the world’s fastest rate of deforestation.
