Info card for Indonesia Green Recovery webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced governments around the world to adjust their development plans and energy reform efforts. Indonesia is expected to grow its economy by 5% in 2021, and the government is continuing to recover its economy by spending on different sectors, such as health, education, and infrastructure. This webinar will discuss how the energy sector could accelerate Indonesia's economic recovery, and, more importantly, create a more resilient economy.

This event is part one of three in the International Energy, Environmental, and Society Dialogue (IEESD) webinar series. IEESD is a high-level dialogue amongst policy makers and international experts to provide new insights and international examples of policies supporting green recovery, with the goal of reaching a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities for the national and international policy-making process and further policy development in Indonesia.

This session will focus on:

  • The role of fossil fuel subsidy reform in economic recovery
  • The barriers to fossil fuel subsidy reform
  • The impacts of reform
  • How to make reform more inclusive

This webinar is organized by the International Institute for Sustainable Development and the National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction (TNP2K).
