Environmental Support Programme

Danida's Environmental Support Programme (ESP3) is in its third phase and places emphasis on strengthening the coordination between national and regional government levels. Central Java Province has been chosen as a pilot province, and the results will be applicable in other provinces.

  The three main components of ESP3 consist of:
  • Component 1
    Supports national and regional levels of government in implementing now existing environmental planning and management systems. Support to develop and apply Strategic Environmental Assessments, in order to ensure that environmental and sustainability aspects are considered effectively in policy, plan and programme both at national and regional levels of government. Pilot projects within environment, energy, water and waste are implemented at the local level to demonstrate new technologies and tangible solutions to roll out national policies and foster green growth.

  • Component 2
    Supports national and regional levels of government in implementation and monitoring energy efficiency, energy conservation and renewable energy. The component features pilot projects that will provide demonstration and experience of energy efficiency, energy conservation and renewable energy in Indonesia. Dissemination of results will be through a Clearing House with an expanded coverage to renewable energy.  

  • Component 3
    Consists of a number of initiatives mostly run by NGOs. Partly funded through the Danish Fast Start Climate Fund for 2012, the component supports Indonesia's climate commitments, and seek to improve livelihoods for forest dependent communities through sustainable natural resource management and forest protection. The component is implemented by Burung Indonesia, The World Agroforestry Centre and The World Bank.

Previous phases of the programme
The first phase of the Environmental Support Programme focused on mainstreaming environmental measuring into Indonesia's national development plans and linking environmental management and poverty alleviation. It initially addressed urgent needs in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami and was followed by a second phase, which kept the focus on improved environmental management. It supported the energy sector by encouraging energy efficiency in the industrial, commercial and public sectors and promoted more effective natural resource management, including encouragement of small-scale renewable energy in rural locations.
