GIZ Indonesia for Emissions reduction in cities through improved waste management (DKTI): Advisor on Cities Coordination and Communication

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. GIZ has been working in Indonesia since 1975 on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

The project ‘"Emissions reduction in cities through improved waste management (DKTI)" has been commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) with an implementation period until July 2023. This project would respond to the problem faced by Indonesia concerning waste management and tackling greenhouse gas emission. With its large population (around 270 million people), Indonesia is one of largest emitters of greenhouse gas in the world, with unmanaged waste contributes for over 6% of total GHG emissions. In the world, Indonesia ranks 6th in terms of GHG emission from waste. The main reasons are the dumping of untreated organic waste in landfills, open burning of waste, poor segregation and recycling rates.

The project aims to support the implementation of suitable waste management systems by improving required conditions in the national and municipal levels. Thus, the project works with 3 outputs working in municipalities/cities level and national level. The outputs represent improvement of technical know-how in value chain of waste management, improvement of waste and greenhouse gas (GHG) emission data, and enabling financing of improved waste management.
