Background :
United Nations Development Programme

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partners with people at all levels to help build nations that can withstand crisis and sustain growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. UNDP Indonesia’s mission is to be an agent for change in human and social development and a trusted partner to stakeholders with the overarching aim of reducing poverty.

Climate Change and Public Climate Finance in Indonesia

Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), released on 24 September 2015, includes an unconditional 2030 GHG emissions reduction target of 29% below business-as-usual (BAU) and a conditional 41% reduction below BAU by 2030 (with sufficient international support). The shift to a low carbon and climate resilient development path is also an integral part of Nawacita (Indonesia’s nine national’s strategic development goals) and is well-integrated in development policies, strategies and programs of the National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2015-2019.

To reach the country’s ambitious goals, a large increase of sustainable funding and more effective use of current resources is required. Domestically, the estimated costs of Indonesian climate change mitigation and adaptation actions for 2015-2020 is USD 81 billion (Third National Communication, 2017). There are financial gaps between funding needs and financial resources from the Government budget. Thus, the government needs to take progressive steps to scale up climate finance

To finance climate change actions, the government must ensure that adequate funding is available to finance climate change programs, as well as track and monitor the results of the programs implemented. The Ministry of Finance plays a crucial role in ensuring that climate change requirements are reflected in budget priorities, pricing policies, and financial market rules.

Sustainable Development Financing (SDF) Project

Since 2017, UNDP has collaborated with the Ministry of Finance to implement the second phase of Sustainable Development Financing (SDF) project. The programme has provided extensive technical assistance support to the Ministry of Finance and the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) in integrating both climate mitigation and adaptation thematic within the national public planning and budgeting system (KRISNA). Capacity building for climate budget tagging (CBT) on both mitigation and adaptation is ongoing at the national level and sector ministries are improving both the accuracy and consistency of climate change tracking and reporting.

Climate Change Budget Tagging (CBT) is an innovative tool to identify and track how much the government has spent on climate change mitigation and adaptation actions by tagging the spending that fits into the Government of Indonesia’s climate objectives. CBT has been developed and implemented since 2014 by Ministry of Finance with support from UNDP through the Sustainable Development Financing (SDF) project. It involves a detailed assessment of the climate benefits of projects undertaken by line ministries. Initially, CBT has been implemented by central government involves six line-ministries related to climate change mitigation and has expanded to include line-ministries related to adaptation. The number of ministries involvement has been increased since 2018 to present. Based on successful of CBT implementation at national level, since 2020, the Ministry of Finance leverages the efforts to strengthen the commitment by piloting CBT at sub-national level, to identify local government’s participation and commitments in reducing GHG emission targets. The pilot activities have been implemented in 12 areas for last two years.

To continue the process of climate budget tagging at national and sub-national level, as well as to improve the quality of process and reporting analytically and technically, UNDP Indonesia through SDF programme seeks a support from a consultant to develop the process of collecting, processing and analyzing CBT data both at national and subnational level.

The consultant will be responsible for overseeing the development of the CBT/RCBT platform as well as analysis development reports for national CBT and RCBT by 2023. The consultant is also expected to be able to compile and develop supporting documents for the development of the CBT/RCBT Platform.
