FOREWORD BY THE MINISTER OF FINANCE
The world has moved beyond the conventional view that economic growth objectives areincompatible with environmental objectives. We know that left unaddressed, climate changerepresents a serious threat to our economic wellbeing. On the other hand, sound economicprinciples are also key to mitigating the impacts of climate change. Central to such principles isthe appropriate pricing of carbon and ensuring that climate change mitigation policies across theboard are both effective and economically efficient. This emphasizes the need for the Ministry ofFinance to play a central role in shaping Indonesia’s response to the climate change challengeIndonesia is looking for solutions to curb greenhouse gas emissions, both through our owndomestic measures and working with the international community. To achieve this, we need tobetter understand the interaction of climate change policies with our development objectives andthe broader economic reform agenda, to put sound policies in place, and to get the financingaspects right.Internationally, Indonesia is known as an advocate of pragmatic and effective climate policy, andthis commitment is exemplified by the recent announcement by President Yudhoyono thatIndonesia will seek to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 26 per cent by 2020 and up to 41percent with international assistance. Indonesia has also played a strong and active role in theinternational climate negotiations leading up to the COP15 conference in Copenhagen. Indonesiahosted the 2007 climate conference which developed the Bali Roadmap for a new global climateagreement, and initiated the first international meeting of finance ministers on climate change.The Green Paper spells out a longer-term strategic framework, grounded in economic principleand international experience, that can guide climate policymaking. Consistent with this framework,the Green Paper sets out selected concrete strategies for fiscal and economic policies for climatechange mitigation. It focuses on the energy sector, setting out a policy package for geothermalpower; and on the land-use change and forestry sector, spelling out how regional climate changeaction can be incentivized through Indonesia’s fiscal transfer mechanism.I consider that the Green Paper will be an important part of Indonesia’s climate policy debate, andthat it will prove a solid basis for the Ministry of Finance to move toward design andimplementation of climate change mitigation policies.Dr Sri Mulyani IndrawatiMinister of Finance
