Indonesia?s Second Medium Term Development Plan
Indonesia?s second medium term development plan (2010 - 2014) contains specific policies and goals on mainstreaming sustainable development and natural resource and environmental management.

The Second United Indonesia Cabinet launched a green economy program as part of its sustainable development plan which is pro-growth, pro-job, and pro-poor. To support the implementation of green economics, programs have been drawn up on food resilience by implementing sustainable agriculture, sustainable forestry management, efficiency and renewable energy usage, clean technology support, waste management, efficient and low carbon transportation management and green infrastructure development. Specific policies include reforms of subsidies for electricity industries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reforms of fuels subsidies making them more targeted, new policy instruments for the promotion of renewable energy such as geothermal and other clean energies, as well as incentives for industries which promote environmental friendly products. Indonesia has voluntarily committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions or carbon intensity per unit of GDP by 2020. Indonesia is committed to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 26%, and up to 41% with international support, by 2020.
