    Sustainable infrastructure: water, energy, transport


Indonesia aims to expand its infrastructure in a climate-friendly and future-oriented way, as the continuing lack of urban infrastructure in the waste and wastewater sector and in transportation has led to widespread congestion, as well as excessive pressure on electricity grids and water supplies. This causes significant environmental impacts and further increases greenhouse gas emissions.

In 2019, Indonesia and Germany launched the bilateral Indonesian-German Green Infrastructure Initiative (GII) encompassing a financial cooperation facility via the German Development Bank KfW. Subsidised and promotional loans of up to 2.5 billion euro support the preparation and implementation of climate-friendly green infrastructure projects in Indonesia and provide the required technical assistance.


Environment- and climate-relevant infrastructure projects for the Indonesian-German Green Infrastructure Initiative, which take gender aspects into account, are prepared.


The project works to

  • improve the capabilities of the responsible actors at national and sub-national levels to enable them to select and prioritise infrastructure projects for the Indonesian-German Green Infrastructure Initiative based on specific criteria agreed at national level and to prepare them for financing in cooperation with sub-national and local actors by drawing up comprehensive pre-feasibility studies.
  • cooperate with the directly relevant public governing bodies at all levels, including ministries, subnational agencies in the area of development planning and other relevant local agencies in six selected partner provinces to develop up to 18 pre-feasibility studies on potentially bankable investment projects in the solid waste management, water and wastewater and the urban public transport sector.
