The following article is taken from WRI-Indonesia. This article is not a message of hopeless, otherwise, a convincing plan. The gap between the plan we could take to reduce global warming and the action we are actually taking can be seen in the execution of the plan. This article shows every action that closes that gap, however small, is meaningful.
As part of its commitment to the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, Indonesia has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 29%-41% against business as usual scenario by 2030. Further, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change elaborated that if global warming exceeds beyond 1.5 C, we will see increased risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.
Even though the current global cumulative NDCs from all countries will result in lower greenhouse gas emission, global temperature will still increase approximately 2.6-3.1°C by 2100. Thus, the need for countries to submit more ambitious emissions reduction target has never been more pressing.
