Abstract

The Indonesian economy has recorded solid growth over the last decade, with an average annual growth rate of gross domestic product (GDP) of 5.4% for the period 2000–2013. Yet growth has followed a very carbon-intensive path. This chapter discusses the need for a green transformation of the Indonesian economy to put it on a sustainable pathway and investigates which of the challenges discussed in the previous chapter apply in the Indonesian context. After briefly reviewing why a green transformation is needed, it outlines Indonesia’s environmental policy goals which pave the way towards a green transformation. Finally, it delineates the necessary action to achieve these goals and discusses the relevance of and potential for green finance in Indonesia.
