Greening Freight Transport in Indonesia
The objective of this cooperation project is to support the identification and development of CO2 mitigation measures in freight transport in Indonesia, with a focus on land based transport on the island of Java. TML supports GIZ in the context of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) funded through the German Federal Ministry of the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). Indonesia is looking to improve the sustainability of its (inland) freight transport, which is currently mostly performed by trucks, often severely overloaded and equipped with outdated technology, on heavily congested roads. TML’s mission is to review and assess policy options that will promote a shift to more sustainable transport modes (notably rail), a greener fleet and more streamlined urban transport. Available data sources are several reports on the status of the Indonesian economy, its freight transport sector and its institutional organization, along with interviews and workshops with the most important stakeholders. TML, along with UI, ICCT and Joko Purwanto, will review these sources to compile a sector baseline analysis, and an overview of the main challenges and action levers to achieve the objectives.
