Every year, the GIZ Evaluation Unit chooses a random sample of projects commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to undergo a central project evaluation. German international cooperation has supported climate policy in Indonesia through PAKLIM projects since 2009. This evaluation focuses on the last of three successive projects, PAKLIM III (2017–2020).
The project objective was to support Indonesian ministries and subnational authorities in coordinating key policy instruments to achieve climate goals. The project therefore aimed to support a more coherent and efficient low-carbon climate policy. The intervention areas encompassed: implementing climate-change mitigation action plans at national and subnational levels by, among other things, strengthening the institutional capacities of the Secretariat of the National Action Plan for Reducing Greenhouse-Gas Emissions (the RAN-GRK Secretariat); facilitating the harmonisation and embedding of NDC goals in planning and decision-making processes, particularly in the national medium-term development plan (RPJMN 2020–2024); supporting the development of climate finance instruments; and gender mainstreaming activities. The aim was for all of this to be integrated into the country’s low-carbon development (LCD) planning. Specific activities were designed in cooperation with partnering policy stakeholders and involved the waste, energy efficiency, public procurement and education sectors.
