Environmental and Social Safeguard Monitoring Specialist
- Despite the Government of Indonesia’s efforts to address the problem, Indonesia remains among the world’s top emitters of greenhouse gases. The majority of greenhouse gas emissions result from deforesta¬tion, loss of peatlands, and other land use changes—but emissions from energy and industrial sources are growing rapidly. Many Indonesians, especially in remote rural areas, suffer from a lack of reliable electric¬ity or depend on expensive and unreliable diesel generation.
- In an effort to increase incomes of Indonesia’s poor in targeted districts, the MCC-funded $332.5 million Green Prosperity Project will provide commercial and grant financing to help mobilize greater private sector investment in renewable energy and sustainable land use practices. The project will also provide technical assistance to support project preparation, improve land use planning, and strengthen local and regional capacity to pursue low carbon development. Green Prosperity Project investments will support a number of mutually-reinforcing, community-based objectives (see figure below) that promote productive use of energy, and protect watersheds and other renewable resources from which energy can be derived.
- Eligible districts will receive assistance in updating spatial plans and land use inventories to ensure that projects funded by Green Prosperity are identified and developed based on accurate, transparent land use data and efficient use of critical ecosystem services. Complementary investments in capacity building and knowledge management, or “green knowledge,” are intended to improve the project’s long-term effective¬ness and sustainability.
