We are pleased to announce that today the Indonesia-UK PACT (Partnering for Accelerated Climate Transitions) programme has launched a call for proposals on carbon pricing.
Indonesia-UK PACT is seeking proposals from eligible organisations to develop an innovative project to support Indonesia’s climate mitigation ambitions. The deadline for applications is on 21 January 2022 at 18.00 Western Indonesia Time/ 11.00 GMT.
As part of the UK-Indonesia Dialogues on carbon pricing, the Indonesia-UK PACT programme is looking to support proposals that will deliver the following objectives for the carbon pricing sector:
- Supporting the Coordinating Ministry of Maritime and Investment Affairs in preparing to implement the upcoming Presidential Regulation on Carbon Pricing.
- Supporting the Ministry of Finance’s Director General for Taxation and Fiscal Policy Agency to design and prepare the implementation plan for a climate change tax.
Grant value: up to £900,000 per year.
Project duration: up to 3 years.
The selected project will provide technical assistance and capacity building with the aim of reducing carbon emissions.
Welcoming today's launch, His Excellency British Ambassador to Indonesia and Timor Leste Owen Jenkins said:
“The UK is keen to support Indonesia’s low-carbon transition. With the Presidential Regulation number 98 year 2021, Indonesia has set a framework on carbon pricing. We believe that this framework will lead to a cost-effective opportunity for achieving greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction while achieving sustainable economic recovery post COVID-19. We look forward to collaborating with the Indonesian Government through the Indonesia-UK PACT programme to support the implementation of carbon pricing initiatives in Indonesia."

About the UK PACT programme
UK PACT is funded by the UK Government’s Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as part of the UK’s International Climate Finance (ICF) portfolio. The programme works in partnership with Official Development Assistance (ODA)-eligible countries with high emissions reduction potential. It aims to support them to implement and increase their ambitions for Green-House Gas (GHG) reductions in line with their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the long-term goal of the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit dangerous climate change. In Indonesia, UK PACT will work to strengthen existing UK-Indonesia climate mitigation efforts, as well as exploring new areas for low-carbon development and clean growth.
