JAKARTA (FORESTHINTS.NEWS) - Indonesian Environment and Forestry Minister Professor Siti Nurbaya has reiterated that the country's efforts towards its its Forestry and Other Land Use (FOLU) NET SINK 2030 target along with energy transition are the two major climate actions getting the most attention in terms of alignments for productive climate collaborations.

"Indonesia's FOLU NET SINK 2030 operational plan clarifies our enhanced climate ambitions. Soon-to-be-released details of the operational plan will reinforce our ongoing climate actions towards net carbon sink by 2030," she said.

These were among the technical matters mentioned by Minister Nurbaya on the last day of a series of virtual bilateral meetings (Aug 23) in preparation for the forthcoming Joint Environment and Climate Ministers’ Meeting under the G20 Presidency of Indonesia, to be held in Bali (Aug 31).

“Indonesia's FOLU NET SINK 2030 and energy transition efforts are set to play a significant role in achieving our target of reduced GHG emissions. As I have repeatedly stressed, our climate actions will continue to be focused on meeting our legally-binding climate targets and will not stop just because we are waiting for support from other countries,” the minister asserted.

“While we need climate partnerships with the other G20 members, we must continue playing our part by working to reach our enhanced climate ambition targets. Climate finance from developed countries can follow later to provide parallel support for our ongoing climate actions,” she explained.

Minister Nurbaya conveyed her great appreciation for the virtual bilateral meetings which have allowed for various key concerns to be discussed in substance before the upcoming Joint Environment and Climate Ministers’ Meeting.

She also expressed her hope that all the delegations to the Joint Environment and Climate Ministers’ Meeting will work effectively to ensure agreeable communications and a meaningful outcome for the G20.

"I am very optimistic that this set of virtual bilateral meetings has engendered a common understanding between us in anticipation of the joint ministers’ meeting," she said.

Minister Nurbaya also pointed out that the climate concerns of developing countries, especially as relate to climate finance, would play a significant part in the joint ministers’ meeting.

Furthermore, according to the minister, Indonesia, as holder of the G20 Presidency, is very enthusiastic and confident about being able to bridge the climate concerns of its fellow G20 members.

“Inclusive collaborations among major developed countries as well as emerging economies around the globe, G20 and non-G20 members alike, aimed at making sure that climate actions actually work on the ground require clear joint climate efforts,” Minister Nurbaya emphasized in conclusion.
