REPOST - GIZ Indonesia for the Sustainable Urban Transport Improvement - Implementation of the NAMA Facility (SUTRI NAMA - INDOBUS) project: Advisor MRV in Urban Transport

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. Its corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis.

SUTRI NAMA, a nationally appropriate mitigation action (NAMA) registered with the UNFCCC, aims to tackle challenges of growing urban traffic congestion and related greenhouse gas emissions by transforming urban transport in Indonesia with a mix of capacity-building, technical advisory and funding support through a national sustainable urban transport (SUT)-programme. Another component of the programme, the Indonesia Bus Rapid Transit Corridor Development Project (INDOBUS), is to support particularly bus rapid transit (BRT) development in selected pilot cities of Indonesia and improving national framework conditions for BRT. It addresses sub-national and national levels through planning, project management, operations management, funding plans as well as reform of the private minibus-sector. The programme is being implemented until December 2022, a date by which lasting sector transformation and replication of technical solutions is expected to be kickstarted. SUTRI NAMA is financed by the NAMA Facility and the INDOBUS-component by the State Secretariat of Economic Affairs of Switzerland (SECO). The programme is being implemented by GIZ.
