Workshop 2050 Pathways
Vision 2050 - Indonesia and the Long-term Objective of the Paris Agreement
Hotel Sari Pacific-Jakarta, 29-30 April 2019
At COP 21 in Paris, the historic Paris Agreement was approved by all governments party to the United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The agreement in Article 4.19 stated all parties to the Paris Agreement should strive to formulate and communicate long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies, mindful of Article 2 takinginto account their common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities, in light of different national circumstances. The COP further in its decision 1/CP21, paragraph 35, invited parties to communicate, by 2020, to the UNFCCC secretariat mid-century, long-term low greenhouse gas emission development strategies (LT-LEDS) in accordance with Article 4.19.
Based on these requests from the COP, the G20 in 2017 reiterated the importance of 2050 LT-LEDS and encouraged G20 members to develop their strategies and recognized that these will also inform investments, inter alia in infrastructure.
Taking the above into account the Ministry of Environment and Forestry is organizing an inception workshop to launch this process in Indonesia, in collaboration with the 2050 Pathways Platform, an initiative which gathers countries, regions and cities with an interest in developing and sharing information on LT-LEDS in the context “Vision 2050: Indonesia and the Long-term Objective of the Paris Agreement”.
(a) Initiate and build a 2050 policy vision, in light of the Paris Agreement Art. 4.19.
(b) Identify what would be key features of this policy vision to ensure a robust, inclusive and ambitious strategy.
(c) Inform participants on best practice and international experiences in carrying out this process.
Inform participants on best practice and international experiences in carrying out this process.
Agenda of the first day will be an open discussion and brainstorm of ideas for building a 2050 policy vision as well as some lesson learned on the process itself.
The second day will be dedicated to an overview of existing modelling and planning efforts that could feed into the elaboration of Indonesia’s LT-LEDS. The aim would also be to identify possible policy questions raised by existing modelling exercises. The workshop could also guide the modelling community on useful areas for further inquiries, and deliver a set of policy issues that the government could consider in the context of the long-term strategy work.
