Global Eco-Industrial Parks Programme (GEIPP) – Indonesia: Country Level Intervention
United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that promotes industrial development for poverty education, inclusive globalization, and environmental sustainability. The cooperation between the Government of Indonesia and UNIDO has been in place since 1970, particularly in terms of technical assistance through Indonesia-UNIDO Country Programmes. UNIDO has aligned the framework in line with priorities of the Republic of Indonesia identified in Indonesia’s long-term development plan 2005-2025 (Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Panjang).
Within the framework of the Global Eco-Industrial Parks Programme (GEIPP) in Developing and Transition Countries currently implemented by UNIDO and funded by the Government of Switzerland through its State Secretariat of Economic Affairs, this project – the GEIPP Indonesia Country Level Intervention – will address the development of eco-industrial parks in Indonesia. This project will also build on lessons learned from the global Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) programme and create synergies with the UNIDO National Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production programme currently implemented in Indonesia. Strong collaboration with other UNIDO EIP projects (e.g. other SECO-funded GEIPP country level interventions as well as EIP initiatives supported by other donors) will be fostered.
The development objective of the project is in line with that of GEIPP, i.e. to demonstrate the viability and benefits of EIP approaches in scaling up resource productivity and improving economic, environmental and social performances of businesses and thereby contribute to inclusive and sustainable industrial development in Indonesia.
The specific expected outcome of the country level intervention in Indonesia is the improved environmental, economic and social performance of industries in Indonesia through the implementation of EIP approaches in selected pilot industrial parks and an increased role of EIPs in environmental, industrial and other relevant policies at the national level.
