Indonesia aims for unified, reliable greenhouse gas data

The government is revising a presidential regulation on greenhouse gas inventory in a bid to achieve unified, comprehensive and reliable data sets on greenhouse gases (GHG).

The Environment and Forestry Ministry said that the revision was needed because the current presidential regulation, No. 71/2011, did not include the guideline for the Integrated Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system, which is mandatory under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
