This workshop aims to analyze and promote climate change mitigation and adaptation pathways in Indonesia. It will focus on the Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF) and two European Commission projects, GREEN-WIN and TRANSrisk, with interlinked objectives in Indonesia. The ICCTF is a key instrument of the Governement of Indonesia in achieving its mitigation and adaptation targets. As Indonesia’s national trust fund, ICCTF will be recognized nationally and internationally as a premiere climate financing portal which investing in projects and programs with environmental and social benefits such as GREEN-WIN. Sustainability and Resilience (Su-re.co) is a research and consulting firm based in Bali which collaborates in the implementation of the workshop.

For GREEN-WIN, the goal of this workshop is to accelerate the sustainable bio-energy business. The particular focus will be to develop and share ideas creating green business models, investment opportunities, and partnership on energy poverty eradication and resilient livelihood with bio-energy.  Also, the workshop will engage the assessment of stakeholder network with climate change adaptation and mitigation pathways.

Background

This work, being led by the University of Udayana (UNUD), is incorporated in Work Package 7 (WP7) of the GREEN-WIN project, with focus on energy poverty eradication and resilient livelihoods. This work package analyzes and contribute to the behavioral transition within the nexus of energy poverty eradication and resilient livelihoods. Three case studies are covered in WP7, including India, South Africa and Indonesia.

In general, the Indonesia case will focus on energy poverty alleviation, food security and novel ecosystem services through bio-energy production in Bali.  This case will study the role of SMEs and community engagement in energy, climate-resilience, poverty alleviation and food security derived from agribusiness production including bio-energy. A particular focus will thereby lie on systemic solutions which link the production of novel energy and food services with climate adaptation and mitigation. The Indonesia case will carry out three tasks:

  • The first is win-win strategies and trade-offs where UNUD will assess bio-energy production processes in term of CO2 reduction, climate and disaster resilience. Village workshop will also be carried out to co-produce and transfer knowledge to relevant stakeholders and create collaborative partnerships.
  • The second is sustainable business models and investment opportunities.  In this task, UNUD will assess sustainable business models followed by local entrepreneurs and derived from agribusiness and bio-energy production. The potential for scaling-up these businesses will be then explored via a SWOT analysis.
  • The last task is enabling environments that will analyze what kind of institutional arrangement, organizational practices, regulations, finance mechanisms as well as actors partnership enable or hinder transformative strategies and sustainable business model at the local level.
