Australia will provide Indonesia with A$500,000 to support the country’s carbon accounting system. The newly appointed Australian Minister for the Environment and Energy Josh Fryndenberg revealed on Wednesday that the new commitment was part of its national carbon accounting system with a special focus on emissions from peat land.
“One of the initiatives working with Indonesia is to share our experience with carbon accounting, to count out the emissions lost and produced. [With that] Indonesia will be able to counter the emissions,” Minister Fryndenberg said after an opening ceremony of the second Asia-Pasific Rainforest Summit in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei Darussalam.
He said Australia had provided A$500,000 for the specific initiative.
Nur Masripatin, the Environment and Forestry Ministry’s directorate general of climate change, confirmed the commitment.
“This will be a form of technical assistance,” Nur Masripatin said.
According to her, Indonesia has already received A$30 million from Australia in the environmental sector. (dmr)
