Cooperation 2020

Building Capacity for Green Growth



Indonesia – the seventh largest economy in the world and an established G20 member – is a vital partner for the EU. The close relationship is based on shared values, including democracy, human rights and pluralism, and common interests, such as environmental protection, knowledge exchange and global health. With relations that span over 30 years, the EU and Indonesia have made great progress in reducing inequalities, addressing climate change, and supporting private sector development.

development COOPERATION

EU development cooperation supports Indonesia through thematic programmes, ASEAN regional cooperation, and work with development banks to boost sustainable investment and capacity building. Programmes are closely linked to Indonesia’s development policies, the Medium Term National Development Plan (RPJMN), the SDG Action Plan, and the Nationally Determined Contribution, which are central to the Paris Agreement and global efforts to reduce emissions and adapt to the impacts of climate change at the national level

Green Growth and the Environment

The EU recognises that joint action on climate change and the environment is an urgent global priority and is working with Indonesia to achieve shared goals, in particular regarding sustainable, low-emission land use, resilience and mitigation, and energy efficiency. The EU has put climate change and the environment at the heart of its new growth strategy – the European Green Deal – which marks a path to a sustainable transition that is just and socially fair.
