Financial investment is crucial in the global efforts to tackle climate change, as pronounced in the COP-26. It is also reflected in the Indonesian media for the past two months. In the December edition of Media Monitoring, climate finance remains the talk of the nation, along with the policy instruments to support such financing. We found that most climate-related news in the media revolves around these four themes.
Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) delivered Climate Action Plan (CAP) training to 267 local government representatives in nine Indonesian cities in 2021, serving as a significant milestone to help increase local government capacity in building urban climate resilience. The training also emphasised the need for the convergence of climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction to achieve sustainable development.
The planet has witnessed the paralysing impact of extreme weather on our lives throughout 2021. The Global Climate Report has documented the increase of climate-induced disasters from the Eastern to Southern hemisphere. At a national level, the Meteorology, Climatology, and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) sounded the alarm of the extreme weather incidents that will take place until mid-December 2021. Improving early warning systems is one of the key strategies for Climate Resilient and Inclusive Cities (CRIC) in the three pilot cities, Pangkalpinang, Bandar Lampung, and Ternate, to prepare cities and communities to anticipate imminent disasters.
