Indonesian Climate Change Crisis: Opportunities and Challenges

Kuliah umum terkait dengan krisis perubahan iklim dan kebakaran hutan telah diadakan di Ruang 5B Perpustakaan  Pusat Universitas Indonesia, Depok. Kuliah umum ini menghadirkan Dr. Erik Meijaard (Borneo Future), Dr. Sunaryo (RCCC Universtitas Indonesia), Dr. Ian Singleton (Sumatra Orangutan Conservation Program), Andhyta F. Utami (WRI) dan T. M. Zulfikar ( Yayasan Ekosistem Lestari) sebagai narasumber.

Dalam beberapa bulan terakhir ribuan titik kebakaran hutan menyala di sebagian besar wilayah Indonesia, khususnya Pulau Sumatera dan Kalimantan, menyebabkan polusi karbon besar-besaran, kematian karena ISPA, menghancurkan habitat serta mendorong orangutan dan satwa langka lainnya semakin dekat pada kepunahan. Tekanan untuk menyelesaikan masalah tata kelola kehutanan dan menangani kebakaran hutan semakin meningkat bersamaan dengan persiapan Indonesia untuk mendiskusikan komitmen perubahan iklimnya dalam COP 21 UNFCCC di Paris bulan Desember ini. Kuliah umum ini membahas berbagai tantangan dan kesempatan yang dihadapi Indonesia untuk mengatasi masalah kebakaran hutan.

UN SDSN National Workshop

UN SDSN National Workshop – Solution Initiatives for Urban Development in Island and Coastal Environment: Water, Food Security, and Waste Management

16 – 17 September 2015 | The Margo Hotel | Depok

 

Currently, most of citizens live in the city. More than 3.5 million people occupy only 2% of the earth’s land, but account for 60 – 80% of energy consumption and 75% of carbon emissions. The number of population in urban ares will rapidly increase by almost 60% in 2030. Along with global trends, urbanization in Indonesia rose slightly from 42% in 2000 to 52% in 2013 which created challenges such as low funding to ensure basic public services, energy efficiency, pollution, transportation, water availability, food security, and waste management.

There are three basic needs of sustainability on urban development in island and coastal environment that will be discussed in SDSN National Meeting 2015: clean water, food security, and waste management. Clean water is a vital needs of living. However, clean water still become expensive natural resource in some island and coastal environment. Millions of people die each year, most of them children, from largely preventable diseases caused by a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation. As one of the most populous country in the world, citizen of Indonesia face the challenge of food security. In islands and coastal area, this issue has been a major problems since the land limitation, clean water availability, and less human resource. Furthermore, climate change will make it worse through all component of food systems, as changing on rainfall patterns, rising temperature, more pests attack, loss of pollinators, and climate uncertainty. Waste problem not only affected due to climate change but also created environmental and health concerns related to air pollution such as NOx, SO2, dioxin, and fine particles. If not handled properly, the cost of waste management will be significantly higher in the future.

Blue Economy

Latar Belakang

Ekonomi Biru (Blue Economy) adalah suatu konsep pengembangan perekonomian yang dikembangkan dan dipopulerkan pertama kali oleh Prof. Gunter Pauli. Aspek utama pendekatan Ekonomi Biru adalah:

  1. Kepedulian terhadap lingkungan.
  2. Pembangunan berkelanjutan.
  3. Emisi/pencemaran minimal, atau idealnya zero waste.
  4. Multiple cash flow.
  5. Mendorong inovasi.
  6. Terkait erat dengan sains dan teknologi.
  7. Pemberdayaan masyarakat dan partisipasi para pemangki kepentingan.

Pendekatan tersebut di antaranya bertujuan untuk mendorong terciptanya keamanan pangan (food security) yang semakin didambakan oleh semua negara mengingat pesatnya pertumbuhan penduduk dunia dan makin terbatasnya sumber pangan.

Climate Change: It's Danger for Our Production and Why It Escapes Our Prediction

with Prof. Cornelis J. (Kees) Stigter (Agromet Vision, The Netherlands and Indonesia) as the main speaker and moderated by Dr. Lisman Manurung (Department of Administration Science, University of Indonesia). The seminar will be started with opening speeches from Dr. Arie Setiabudi Soesilo, M.Sc. (Dean of FISIP UI) and Dr. Jatna Supriatna (Director of RCCC UI).

Indonesia's Climate Commitment and the New Climate Economy

The "Indonesia's Climate Commitment and The New Climate Economy" seminar and national discussion held on April 20, 2015 was a roaring success with over 250 participants packing the beautiful Floating Room (Ruang Apung) on the picturesque lakeside of the leafy UI Depok campus. The presence of Sir David King together with Prof. Emil Salim and three other speakers moderated by Dr. Jatna Supriatna, with an active audience participation resulted in a very lively discussion.
