At the climate talks in Lima


In the corridors and sessions at the UN climate talks in Lima over the past two weeks, there has been extraordinary power and energy. We’ve seen material action as the financial sector starts to transform how it thinks about long-term risk. Coalitions are working together on tax reform, regulatory reform, and putting a price on carbon, and country after county is saying that they have been able to clean up their regulatory framework and put themselves in a position to grow.

I still doubt that Indonesia could meet its commitment to mitigate GHG emission 26 - 41% in 2020, because the forest fire is still going on every year. In addition, CPO production is going up to reach 35 million tons in 2015. The Palm Oil Mill Effluent (Pome) will reach 124 million meter cubic per year, which will emit methane gas a lot. This gas has the GWP (Global Warming Potential) 21 times CO2. Please help us. Johannes - CDM Consultant Indonesia.
