UK PACT is proud to be supporting Indonesia’s development of low-carbon transport, energy efficiency and carbon pricing.
Through the Indonesia-UK PACT programme, the UK is committed to working with Indonesia on achieving carbon emissions reduction targets and tackling climate change. Indonesia-UK PACT aims to strengthen existing UK-Indonesia climate initiatives, while also exploring new areas for collaboration on reducing emissions and promoting low-carbon development.
Indonesia-UK PACT has worked closely with government stakeholders to identify opportunities for strategic support. The programme has identified areas for collaboration in low-carbon cities and transport, as well as energy efficiency, and carbon pricing.

Project lead: Buro Happold
This project will work with the Ministry of Transportation’s Directorate General of Railways, PT Kereta Api Indonesia, and the Metropolitan Semarang authorities to tackle financing and delivery barriers blocking the development of light rail transport systems. It will also generate practical learnings through pilot projects which can be scaled nationally to maximise impact. An integrated approach to network planning will increase efficiency in urban mobility, promoting a shift from private vehicles to mass transport and carbon emissions reductions.
Project lead: Arup
This project will will work with Indonesia’s Ministry of Transportation, urban authorities and community groups to raise the profile of public transport as a safe, daily transport choice. It will engage with multiple stakeholders and run assessments to gather insights into the needs of women and marginalised groups regarding public and active transport. Lessons learned from this programme will inform national policy-making in the Directorate General of Land Transportation, in the Ministry of Transportation.
Project lead: WRI Indonesia
This project will help improve and implement low-carbon, inclusive, resilient, and safe urban mobility strategies in coastal metropolitan Makassar and Surabaya, which are vulnerable to sea-level rise and flooding.
Project lead: University of York
This project will contribute to the Ministry of Transportation’s plans to reduce urban transport carbon emissions, as well provide support to Greater Medan authorities to develop, finance, implement, and accelerate inclusive low-carbon transport projects.
Project lead: Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP)
This project will provide the Metropolitan Jakarta Transit Authority (BPTJ) and the Government of Jakarta with support to increase levels of low-carbon transport across the city, and explore how this approach can be scaled up at the national level.
Project lead: Westminster Foundation for Democracy
“This project comes at a pivotal moment as Indonesia seeks to enhance its contribution to global climate action strategy. It aims to raise the ambition of Indonesia’s climate action strategy by optimising Parliament’s roles in legislating laws that are responsive to climate change and environmental problems, overseeing policies and scrutinising government budgets to comply with international standards and best practices.”
— Endah Tjahjani Dwirini Retnoastuti, SS, MPhil, Head of Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation Bureau, Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR RI)
Green Recovery Challenge Fund project led by: ITDP Institute for Transportation & Development Policy
This project is working with the Jakarta Transport Agency and the Ministry of Transport to develop a comprehensive road map and timetable for electrifying ride-hailing motorcycles in Greater Jakarta. This project will help significantly reduce GHG emissions and improve air quality, while providing tangible benefits for low-income and marginalized communities.
Green Recovery Challenge Fund Project led by: ITDP Institute for Transportation & Development Policy
This project is supporting the scale-up of TransJakarta e-bus deployment. It is addressing roadblocks like knowledge, analytical and planning capacity, that are preventing large-scale uptake of electric buses in the city of Jakarta. This project will focus on supporting the scale-up of TransJakarta e-bus deployment.
