It is a truly privilege to be at the World's stage as a policy advisor. With a group of sharp minded OECD experts, I compose a policy options paper on 'Enhancement of mitigation and finance reporting'. The report is prepared in advance as a discussion material for OECD’s Climate Change Expert Group (CCXG) meeting that will be held in Paris, 11-12 September 2017. The report will highlight the gaps

The world simply can't afford more having a high carbon fuel primarily coal if we still want to have a habitable world by the end of our life (around 2050s). Coal is the worst carbon pollutant that has been widely used today. In fact, they are not only used but promoted through many ways that make both producers, electricity generators and consumers use more coal as energy source.

 

To keep us having a habitable earth when we are old, it is important for all countries to erase all kinds of subsidy and incentive for using coal. All countries must start their transition from coal based energy to low carbon choice. 

Recently I have started an exciting project of an institutional building to help channeling billion dollars of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) money to Indonesia. This money will have an enormous impact; it supports Indonesia’s ambition to implement low carbon development in its way to be a developed country by 2033. I worked with a team of consultants funded by the Climate Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), an alliance of organisations led by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC), and including Fundación Futuro Latinoamericano, LEAD International, LEAD Pakistan, the Overseas Development Institute, and SouthSouthNorth

Summary

An earlier study by Halimanjaya (2016) identifies that a few donors are greener than others. Japan, Germany, France, Norway and the US commit to reduce global emissions and allocate a larger share of bilateral official development assistance (ODA)  to mitigation finance (1998-2014). These green donors have different ways of allocating mitigation finance
