Jakarta (Greeners) – Ministry of Environment and Forestry currently preparing Third National Communication (TNC), an elaborated Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC) to become Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).
Director general of climate change control, Nur Masripatin, said that TNC will be seen as Indonesia’s performance on its commitment to tackle climate change issues stated in INDC.
“The process will begin in July, August, September and finalization stage in October, November, and December. TNC will be presented to UNFCCC (at COP 22) which will be held on Nov. 7-18 in Morocco,” said Nur, in Jakarta, on Thursday (24/3).
Minister of Environment and Forestry, Siti Nurbaya, said Indonesia’s TNC needs to be better than INDC as it is crucial to erase the negative international image on Indonesia. Consequently, TNC has to describe organized, systematic Indonesia which underlined public interest.
“We need to be perceptive on the protocols of climate change agenda. We could not be slacking around as we would be receiving negative stigma from international world. Indonesia has ample and excellent success stories from the government, communities or NGOs. We would only need to write it better,” she said.
Post COP 21 in Paris, each party must compile Third National Communication (TNC) as national document contains reports on contribution based performances as committed and nationally declared to tackle climate change impacts as stated in Indonesia’s Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDC).
The National Communication document is a state official document which communicates the implementation of the whole convention. The content includes policy, regulation, institution, funding, greenhouse gas emissions inventory, climate change mitigation, MRV (Measurement, Reporting and Verification), capacity building and technology.
