Indonesia is the world’s fourth most populous country, with almost 274 million people. It is the largest economy and the largest energy consumer in the ASEAN region. The transport sector accounts for more than a quarter of total energy consumption and energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Surprisingly for a large island nation, road transport accounts for almost 90% of transport related emissions.
GIZ consequently supports the Indonesian Ministry of Transport in GHG mitigation projects from road-based freight and passenger transport. The project Sustainable Urban Transport NAMA contributes to improving public transport systems in five pilot cities. Through the Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Development Project (INDOBUS), GIZ supports the planning and implementation of Bus Rapid Transit corridors with segregated bus lanes in five pilot cities. The TRANSfer III project facilitated the development of bankable mitigation actions from the rapidly growing freight transport sector, focussing on truck fleet modernisation and on modal shift from road to rail (2018-2022).
In its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Indonesia has made a commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 29% until 2030 compared to the business as usual scenario. About half of the mitigation efforts are to be covered by the electricity and transport sectors. Through the SUTRI NAMA project emission reductions between 7.2 – 14.1 MtCO2 are estimated to be achieved between 2015 and 2030. A full implementation of the mitigation actions in freight transport supported by the TRANSfer III project would yield a combined emission reduction of around 12,5 MtCO2 by 2030.
