Factor CO2 held a press conference in Bogor (Indonesia) to officially launch the project "Energy and Climate Action Plan in Bogor" (Indonesia) funded by the French Development Agency (AFD).

The event was attended by the local government (project coordinator), the French Development Agency (AFD) and Sergi Bosque (Project Manager and representative of Factor CO2 in Asia and the Pacific). The local and national media were also present, as well as members of academia, social organizations, local community and NGOs.

The project has a duration of one year and is divided into two distinct phases.

On one hand, the main objective of the first phase has been to develop the climate change strategy including: consolidation of previous actions on mitigation and adaptation, developing scenarios of GHG for 2030, identification, selection and prioritization of policy measures, among others. This phase also consists of certain communication activities, including the press conference.

On the other hand, the main objective of the second phase of the project is to design specific climate change actions in the fields of energy efficiency, waste management and urban greening, for implementation in the coming years. Key issues to be included in the studies are: greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions calculation, assess the impact of the co-benefits, provide recommendations of an integrated system of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E), economic and financial evaluation, identifying sources of funding, define the institutional arrangements and propose an implementation schedule.

 

Factor CO2 is specialized in providing ideas and services addressing climate change since 2004, through an extensive international network of offices and partners group.
