Being one of the most mega-diverse countries, Indonesia has been active in managing its biodiversity over the past 30 years. Back in 1993, Indonesia has launched the BAPI document (Biodiversity Action Plan for Indonesia), which later developed into Indonesia Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (IBSAP). The document was revised and updated in three opportunities, 1993, 2003, and 2005, based on the renewed commitments towards the Convention for Biological Diversity (CBD).

After the release of the Kunming Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework (KMGBF) at COP 15 CBD back in December 2022, Indonesia has started the process of formulating the new IBSAP that are expected to be submitted in 2024. The Ministry of National Development Planning (Kementerian PPN/Bappenas) is coordinating a national inter-ministry technical committee integrated by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Ministry of Marine & Fisheries and Ministry of Agriculture, as well as by a team of experts providing technical and scientific inputs that contribute to decision making.

The future IBSAP is anticipated to be a strategic and ground rule document that will guide both state and non-state actors in the implementation of activities towards the agreed Biodiversity Management Index (BMI).

GIZ Indonesia, through the Climate and Biodiversity Hub Indonesia (ClimB) has been providing technical advice and support to Bappenas throughout the process of the IBSAP formulation. Some of the key supporting elements are:

  • Relevant assessments as background information for decision making:
  • Study on interlinkages between climate change, biodiversity, and green economy, to strengthen the agenda for a transformation towards green economy.
  • Assessment of current biodiversity and ecoregion status in Sumatra and Sulawesi Regions, to be used as baseline and source of information for strategic policy development and action plan within IBSAP formulation.
  • Technical support for target formulation: deep dive sessions on indicators and targets from the new CBD Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) to facilitate current IBSAP formulation. This activity has been done in collaboration  with technical experts from IKI-funded BioFrame global project.
  • Monitoring and Evaluation (MONEV): GIZ also assists Bappenas in developing the IBSAP and BMI monitoring and evaluation framework that become an operational procedure and will be implemented by relevant Indonesia governments.
