GREEN-WIN, a Horizon2020 project, is an international transdisciplinary research collaboration applying a solution-oriented approach targeted at increasing the understanding of links between climate action and sustainability and overcoming implementation barriers through win-win strategies.
The Indonesian case study is led by the University of Udayana and explores the potential of green business models enabled by biogas applications, for energy poverty eradication and resilient livelhoods.
TransRisk, a Horizon2020 project, aims to create a novel assessment framework to analyse the costs and benefits of transition pathways that will integrate well-established approaches to model the costs of resilient, low-carbon pathways.
su-re.co is leading the work on the case study for Indonesia which explores the policy implications for scaling biogas and bioethanol.
Strengthening Climate Adaptation Planning through Customised Learning Approaches
Stockholm Environment Institute
The project aims to facilitate the planning of locally relevant climate adaptation programs and projects by providing a combination of face-to-face and testing of electronic learning opportunities that are responsive to the specific needs of the participant group and to allow the participant group to pass their training on to others. The long term aim is to build capacity and expertise in climate adaptation planning at the sub-national level through collaboration with local partners.
su-re.co designed modules and delivered training sessions on climate change adaptation and vulnerability assessment to local government officers, NGO staff, and academics in Lombok, Indonesia and Dumaguete, the Philippines.
Ecosystem based approaches to climate resilient production
A feasibility study, led by the Green Climate Fund, explores an ecosystem based approach to climate resilient production of target commodities cocoa and coffee in Sulaweise and Lesser Sunda Islands, Eastern Indonesia.
su-re.co explored the climate risk profile of Indonesia and assessed the vulnerability of coffee and cacao production to climate change impacts.
Low carbon and climate resilient industrial development in Africa
This project assists countries in Africa to develop and implement Green Industry solutions for low carbon and climate resilient industrial development by enabling transfer, deployment and scaling-up of appropriate technical solutions in the areas of resource efficiency, cleaner production, and waste and effluent management.
su-re.co assessed the vulnerability to climate change for most significant industries in Kenya, Senegal, South-Africa and Egypt.
Industry 4.0 and Sustainable Energy
This project aims to answer the question how UNIDO can support developing countries and countries with economies in transition address opportunities and challenges stemming from the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
su-re.co co-developed the report, in collaboration with IASS, and particularly explored the opportunities for UNIDO to, through private sector collaboration, help increase the deployment of Industry 4.0 technologies.
Data and information management for adaptation to climate change (DATACLIM)
Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit
The project aim was to provide customised climate change information and climate data to users, in particular from the civil service.
su-re.co trained the Indonesian Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysical Agency (BKMG) staff to use and maintain the Climate Change Information Service (CCIS) portal via statistical programming using R.
Low-Carbon and Resilient Development Program
Asian Development Bank
This project aims to improve climate change mitigation and adaptation initiatives in Indonesia by addressing policy frameworks. This will be achieved through mainstreaming climate change into national development programs, improved governance of the forestry sector and land use, and increased development of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
su-re.co developed a detailed action plan to introduce and socialize RAN-API to provincial and district governments; reviewed current sector plans and strategies to improve RAN-API, and worked with development partners in Indonesia to identify potential new assistance programs.
Microfinance solutions for cacao farmers
Japan International Cooperation Agency
This project explored ways to introduce and disseminate high value-added cocoa production in the Indonesian middle-income market and the Japanese market, whilst achieving an income improvement for BOP farmers.
su-re.co asssessed the viability of microinsurance for reducing climatic disasters, and developed a plan to introduce microfinance to cacao farmers.
Feasibility study on adaptation measures in developing countries
Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry
This project aims to build capacity and improve income of farmers by supporting the cultivation of organic cocoa based on the Japanese companies' technologies and techniques. This project contributed to poverty reduction of farmers and, as a result, the development of adaptive capacity approved by IPCC.
su-re.co assesed the vulnerability of cacao farmers in Bali and supported farmers via training in target areas.
Harnessing agricultural feedstocks and residues for bioethanol production
Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency
This project had the objective to develop a strategy and action plan for the development of sustainable bioethanol in Indonesia in synergy with the sugar industry and with other agricultural sectors such as rice and cassava, focusing on the use of agricultural residues as feedstock.
su-re.co contributed to the report in the area of bio-energy strategy and related issues, informing about climate change and agricultural activities in Indonesia.
Charcoal Substitution with Bioethanol
Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation
This study aims to provide empirical evidence on whether biofuel production for household use can improve human well-being and become an agent of poverty alleviation in African least developed countries.
su-re.co contributed to the development of training material on household economic assessments; delivered training on various approaches to energy issue assessment and the design and research of demand assessments using choice models.
Indonesian-Swedish Initiative for Sustainable Energy Solutions (INSISTS)
Swedish Energy Agency
InSIStS, a platform iniative by the Swedish Energy Agency, has the overall objective to enhance the development and use of renewable energy sources in Indonesia – in cooperation between Swedish and Indonesian partners.
su-re.co provides general support based on local expertise and its collaborative network in Indonesia, with the aim to create a linkage between climate change mitigation and adaptation activities in the bioenergy sector.
