Ocean-based climate mitigation could provide up to one-quarter of the emissions reductions needed to keep global warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius.

Indonesia is one of the most important countries in the world for ocean-based mitigation, with more than 17,000 islands and 99,000 km of coastline.

New Climateworks analysis maps where and how Indonesia can use blue carbon, offshore renewables and maritime transport to become a world leader in ocean-based decarbonisation.

Guntur Sutiyono, Indonesia Lead, hosts this webinar exploring Climateworks’ newly-produced maps detailing some of the greatest opportunities for ocean climate action in Indonesia. 

The event features an interview with internationally renowned coastal management expert Professor Luky Adrianto on the context in which Indonesia can incorporate the ocean into its international climate commitments.

Dr Sali Bache, Climateworks International Policy and Oceans Lead, outlines our Southeast Asia Framework for Ocean Action in Mitigation (SEAFOAM) project and discusses progress in the ocean-climate space, internationally.

Report co-author Minalee Busi dives into the SEAFOAM analysis, highlighting key findings from our collation of data on coastal and offshore mitigation options for Indonesia. 

This event was recorded on 1 August 2023.
