HSF in Indonesia cooperates with the Directorate General of Climate Change Control of the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry
Capacity Building for Non-Party Stakeholders in South Sumatra Province on Greenhouse Gases Inventory, Monitoring, Reporting and Validation

To address the Presidential Decree no 98/2021 on carbon economic value implementation and to achieve the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), it is mandated that all sectors and local governments, under the coordination of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), must prepare a greenhouse gas (GHG) report. To this end, Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) partnered with the Directorate General of Climate Change Control (Ditjen PPI) of KLHK by conducting a training workshop on GHG inventory, reporting, monitoring and validation in Palembang from 9-10th of May.

A total of 42 non-party stakeholders (local governments, corporates, CSOs, universities) from all districts/cities throughout South Sumatra Province benefitted from the 2 days’ workshop. The training aimed at increasing stakeholders’ (provincials, districts/cities) capacity to contribute to provincial GHG reports which will be used for NDC reporting and as a basis for determining future mitigation actions in South Sumatra Province.

During the training participants learned about common sources of GHG emissions in Indonesia, how to collect data needed during the GHG inventory process, how to group the collected data according to GHG inventory sectors, how to verify data to ensure data accuracy and relevance, and how reporting of GHG inventory data works from the district, provincial up to national level. The workshop included training on the usage of SIGN SMART (, an electronic online tool and web-based calculator, developed by KLHK in 2015 as a simplified version of GHG reporting methods from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). On the long run the GHG inventory data will serve as a baseline for target settings of emissions in the province and will assist respective authorities to decide mitigation actions to be taken.
