USAID ICED II supports local government’s low carbon development planning

28 May 2019

Indonesia is shifting its national development planning policy into low carbon development. The first province to do so was South Sulawesi, whose government co-organized a kick-off meeting on May 24, 2019 with Bappenas to discuss the low carbon development concept. USAID Indonesia Clean Energy Development II (ICED II) attended the meeting in the province capital of Makassar, along with 120 other participants from national, provincial, and district governments, as well as development partners. The meeting aimed to disseminate low carbon development concept to provincial and district governments. Keynote speakers from the National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas) and South Sulawesi Development Planning Agency (Bappeda) praised USAID commitment to support the low carbon development planning in the province. South Sulawesi is one of five ICED II Priority Provinces.  The other four are Aceh, North Sumatra, East Java and West Nusa Tenggara.
