Indonesia's impressive socio-economic development over the past two decades has brought with it a substantial impact on the environment. The continuing lack of urban infrastructure leads to widespread congestion, excessive pressure on electricity grids and water supplies. The majority of the country’s solid waste ends up in unsolicited landfills where huge amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas 82 times more potent than carbon dioxide, are generated by this untreated waste.
Against this background, the launch of the Indonesian-German Infrastructure Initiative was agreed on in the framework of the Indonesian-German Bilateral Government Negotiations on 1 October 2019 in Berlin. The Coordinating Ministry for Maritime Affairs and Investment (CMMAI) and the Committee for the Acceleration of Priority Infrastructure Delivery (KPPIP) were mandated to coordinate and accelerate the planning and implementation of priority infrastructure projects.
The Indonesian-German Green Infrastructure Initiative encompasses a five-year Financial Cooperation (FC) facility of up to EUR 2.5 billion to support environment and/or climate-relevant infrastructure projects via subsidized and promotional loans through the German Development Bank (KfW) for investments to promote green infrastructure in Indonesia in three thematic sectors: Solid Waste Management, Water and Wastewater Management, and Urban Public Transport
