About the event
Indonesia's impressive socioeconomic development over the past two decades has brought with it significant environmental impacts. The persistent lack of urban infrastructure results in widespread traffic congestion and excessive pressure on power grids and water supplies. The majority of the country's solid waste ends up in unsolicited landfills, where this untreated waste generates huge amounts of methane, an 82 times stronger greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
Given these circumstances, the launch of the Green Infrastructure Initiative (GII) was agreed as part of the Indonesian-German bilateral Governmental Negotiations in Berlin on October 1, 2019. The Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment (CMMAI) and the Committee for the Acceleration of Priority Infrastructure Delivery (KPPIP) were mandated to coordinate and accelerate the planning and implementation of priority infrastructure projects. The GII comprises a five-year Financial Cooperation (FC) facility of up to EUR 2.5 billion to support environmentally and/or climate-relevant infrastructure projects via subsidized and promotional loans from the German Development Bank (KfW) for investments to promote green infrastructure in Indonesia in three thematic sectors: Waste Management, Water and Wastewater Management, and Public Transport.
In this context, we are inviting European and Indonesian experts to participate in the introduction session of the Green Infrastructure Initiative, which will be held as follows.
