AIBC ACT Chair and Committee proudly present
"The Impact of Climate Change on Indonesia and the Ramifications for Business"
with Dr Frank Jotzo, ANU
AIBC ACT Members and guests are invited to attend a business sundowner with Dr Frank Jotzo, Senior Lecturer at the Crawford School, Director of the Centre for Climate Economics & Policy, and Deputy Director of the ANU Climate Change Institute. Dr Jotzo is also a frequent contributor to the public and policy debate in Australia and internationally.
Indonesia is among the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters and it has committed to cut its carbon footprint significantly. The target is for a 26 percent reduction by 2020 relative to business-as-usual by Indonesian efforts, and up to 41 percent reduction with international assistance. This is a substantial undertaking when compared with other major countries.
Substantial financial incentives for businesses and local governments will be required in order to acheive these targets. Reforms to the tax system, along with intergovernmental fiscal transfers tied to environmental outcomes and properly enforced regulatory measures could achieve this — especially if they are coupled with alternative strategies to promote local economic development. The longer-term challenge is in Indonesia’s energy system. Industrial energy use, electricity use in public buildings and homes, and transport are all growing rapidly as the country moves up the development ladder.
Come along to hear Dr Jotzo speak about this important issue and make the most of a great networking opportunity.
