Indonesia’s Climate Commitment

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. The discussion started with an address from Rector of the University of Indonesia who spoke about how higher education has a vital role to play in explaining the facts and in providing leadership to address the complex dimensions of climate change and to develop concrete sustainable solutions. Universities can provide the required knowledge and the initiative to drive national activities to move this country forward.

Can Indonesia Develop without Destroying Its Environment?

A public lecture on sustainable development in Indonesia is being held on April, 9 2015 in the University of Indonesia Center Library. The lecture entitled “Can Indonesia Develop without Destroying Its Environment?”  was focused on the challenges facing in the Insular South East Asia region, including the issues for forest landscape, smaller islands and coastal areas.

Certificate Training Series on Climate Change

Research Center for Climate Change—University of Indonesia will be conducting the second batch of certificate training series on August and September 2015. These trainings will provide practical skill and conceptual understanding which are needed to help reduce deforestation rate and forest conversion in every aspects. The training, which also conducted by Center for Environment, Economy, and Social (CEES)—Columbia University and funded by USAID, is aimed to facilitate forest management activities in Indonesia. The training series will be carried out by the experts and practicians from each topics.

Ecosystem Services Discussion

The study from Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) in 2007 has found that the increasing of glasshouse gases quantity (CO2, CH4, NOx, and CFC) in the atmosphere largely due to human activities has been triggering the climate change on earth. Climate change is also posing great threat to society because it is shifting the balance in ecosystem and the dynamic of its components. Industrialization and fossil fuel combustion had led to the increasing of CO2 and other glasshouse gases quantity into atmosphere, causing global warming and climate instability.

Developing countries had been marked to suffer the biggest effect from the climate pattern change. The changing effects, including temperature rise, precipitation pattern change, sea-level rise, and other climate-related disasters are also increasing the risk in the agriculture, food, and water resource. Globalization on industrial system is also causing ecosystem fragmentation and degradation on big scale, destroying the ecosystem inhabited by various indigenous plant and animal species which could lead to the sixth great extinction.

The vital role of ecosystem and biodiversity—biosphere—on sustaining life, as we all know, has not been well-managed yet. The resilience on climate change depends on its healthy ecosystem and biodiversity richness. The higher biodiversity richness in the ecosystem and ecological knowledge in a community, the stronger its bio-cultural resilience. Resilience comes from the ability to mitigate (reducing the impact) or adaptation (response from change). The factors above are affecting the capacity of a system to endure disturbance and shock. In other words, it is the ability of a system to regulate its essential functions, structure, and identity. Resilience is an absolute quality characteristic from all healthy life system. There are many services which provided by forest that could contribute in reducing system vulnerability against climate change and, as a consequence, increasing its resilience.

Researcher Profile

Multidisplin are Our Strength

Climate change is a natural phenomenon which becomes more complicated in terms of prediction due to various dimensions such as ethics, politics, economics, and humanity which affecting one another. This has been acknowledged and has been an important issue by many of UI’s scientists through their research topics. Through Research Center for Climate Change (RCCC–UI), some of scientists represent multi-disciplinarians and knowledge, and thus become the great opportunity to influence the nation’s policy developments as well as supporting adaptation schemes of local people.

Illustraition of Our Activities

Research Center for Climate Change University of Indonesia (RCCC-UI) have done some project since its established in 2010. Many activities include research program, simposia, training and workshops, general lecture of climate change related issues, and exhibition events. This shows the summary for some our project that describe by slide of photos and narratives, our engagement are not only on physical aspects of climate change, but also social and economical aspect. Supporting sustainable development goals and take it as an opportunity on development issues.
