BACKGROUND

The Government of Indonesia (GoI) has committed to address climate change including risks and vulnerabilities that could have implications to the national development agendas. Up to now, GoI has enacted several climate change policies, i.e RAN-GRK, RAN-API, and NDC. To finance the climate change actions, the government has to ensure that it not only has adequate funding but also to track and monitor the results of the programmes it implements. In addition to addressing the direct challenge of climate change, the GoI also needs to overcome the differential impact of climate change on gender. In Indonesia and other developing countries, many women work in the informal sector who depend on agricultural and plantation products. The changing climate increased the risk of natural disasters such as floods, heat waves and long droughts, which will be a high risk for women because they will lose their livelihoods.

 

During the two RPJMN periods, climate change and gender mainstreaming (PUG) have been defined as development strategies that are cross-sectoral. It is hoped that the implementation of PUG integration into the government planning and budgeting cycle can encourage the allocation of development resources to be more effective, accountable and fair in providing benefits to all Indonesian citizens, both men and women.

 

As an effort to improve the accountability and track the budget allocations, the budget tagging system is needed. Several thematic budget tagging themes are gender-responsive budget (ARG) with code (003), climate mitigation budget (004) and climate adaptation (007).

 

Since 2014, the Innovative Financing Lab, UNDP Indonesia began to support the Ministry of Finance through Sustainable Development Financing Project, to integrate climate change into the planning and budgeting system and there has been significant success in reforming public financial management systems to track climate related expenditures as well in strengthening budget formulation to consider cost and benefits in the context of climate change. This program will continue to focus on climate change as the entry point into budget reform given the existing relationships and gathering political momentum and integrate a concern with gender equality, as well as poverty and human rights into these climate related reforms. In addition, building on existing partnerships and on the experience of supporting budget reforms, UNDP also supported the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Women Empowerment and Child Protection in integrating a gender responsive climate change budgeting. This was a crucial move as climate change disproportionally affects women.

 

Based on the successful experience, UNDP Indonesia aims to continue expand activities aimed to support gender responsive climate change budgeting, public climate budget-related issues and is currently seeking a junior consultant to support the Sustainable Development Financing (SDF) Project.
