Abstract
Indonesia is a significant global player both in terms of economic performance and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. While its total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and emissions are ranked high in global comparisons, both in terms of per capita measures have a relatively low ranking, suggesting that there is potentially more growth to come. Growth in Indonesia’s total emissions is being driven by economic growth and in particular growth in the industry sector and increasing energy use. While emissions intensity is also growing and being driven by technological changes in the industry sector and changes in the energy generation mix to being dominated by the more emissions intensive coal generation. Given that the world is already at dangerous... (More)

While emissions intensity is also growing and being driven by technological changes in the industry sector and changes in the energy generation mix to being dominated by the more emissions intensive coal generation. Given that the world is already at dangerous levels for climate change Indonesia needs to address these drivers in order to reduce its relative and absolute impacts on global climate change. (Less)
