Indonesia has committed to reducing carbon emissions by 29% by 2030.

The Indonesian Government said it could go further with international help and cut its emissions by up to 41% during the same period.

To achieve the goal, the country aims to generate at least 23% of its energy from renewables by 2025.

Its plan towards tackling climate change is also focused on water security and improving energy efficiency.

The country is “highly vulnerable” to climate change impacts such as floods, deforestation and forest degradation, it added.

The Indonesian Government said: “Climate change is believed to increase the risk for hydro-meteorological disasters, which make up 80% of disaster occurrences in Indonesia.

“In order to reduce its vulnerability to climate change, it must strengthen its climate resilience by integrating its adaptation and mitigation efforts in developing, planning and implementation.”
