WWF-Indonesia supports a drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, especially from the energy sector. We promote an equitable transition, both socially and environmentally, and prioritize climate resilience through nature-based solutions.
Our country has a huge challenge in mitigating climate change. This requires collaboration with various parties to create a better future for Indonesia's climate, nature and people.
Researchers have warned that a 1.5°C rise in the Earth's temperature would have catastrophic effects. Extreme weather changes, such as floods, storms, droughts and heat waves, can cause huge social and economic losses. Melting ice in the polar regions leads to sea level rise, flooding coastal areas and even island nations. Water scarcity and crop failure lead to food shortages. This destruction of nature will certainly affect mass extinctions in the future.
WWF encourages governments to enact laws that responsibly support climate resilience, low-carbon development, energy efficiency, and clean renewable energy for all. We also work with financial institutions to pull investment away from fossil fuels and move it towards investments in climate change solutions such as cleaner technologies and forest restoration.
