JAKARTA, KalderaNews.com – The DKI Jakarta Provincial Government is demonstrating its commitment to create a climate-resilient city, as evidenced by the issuance of Governor’s Regulation (Pergub) Number 90 of 2021 concerning Regional Climate Resilient-Low Carbon Development Plan (RPRKD).
The Governor of DKI Jakarta Province, Anies Baswedan, said that the Plan is a comprehensive regional level regulation for integrating mitigation and adaptation in DKI Jakarta’s climate change actions.

Governor Anies added that this Plan is a manifestation of DKI’s ambitious commitment and active contribution in achieving Indonesia’s National Determined Contribution (NDC).
Jakarta is executing comprehensive innovations in which climate change mitigation and adaptation actions are applied in a balanced manner, considering that climate change adaptation actions are often forgotten. In addition, mainstreaming the issue of climate change and regional development has become the underlying spirit formulating this regulation.
“The commitment is to realize the city of Jakarta as a climate-resilient city, and our ability to accelerate the achievement of the target of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30% and ambitiously reduce direct GHG emissions by 50% by 2030, as well as net zero emission in 2050,” explained Governor Baswedan.
In parallel, Jakarta is committed to improving the community’s adaptive capacity in dealing with climate disasters by reducing the number of areas categorized as vulnerable and highly vulnerable to climate disasters. The Plan is also in accordance with the Paris Agreement, which is the global agenda for dealing with climate change.
