The United States has reportedly pledged US$450 million for an environmental and climate change cooperation programme with Indonesia. The money will be utilised to fund projects for the promotion of environmentally sustainable economic growth, strengthening climate change policies, conservation of tropical forests, protecting coastal communities and fisheries as well as the Low Emission Development Strategies (SOLUSI) project to improve air quality.

The US will, reportedly, assist Indonesia to implement a “Green Prosperity Project” at a cost of US$332.5 million, which will support environmentally sustainable economic growth through the enhancement and management of Indonesian forests, peat lands and other natural resources as well as the development of renewable energy. In addition, the US will provide US$6.9 million to match funding from Norway for the new Indonesian Climate Change Centre (ICCC), which will deploy and provide the mapping and monitoring of carbon-rich peat lands and tropical forests, with expertise to be provided by the US Forest Service.

The aim is to provide Indonesia with the best available scientists and policy analysts on key strategies and decision making from the US to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Concerning the conservation of Indonesia’s tropical forests, the US and Indonesia had earlier signed a second Tropical Forest Conservation Act Agreement (TFCA) in September. This provides for a debt-for-nature swap of US$28.5 million in order to support tropical forest conservation in Indonesia.
