Indonesia : Reducing Marine Debris Program, Subprogram 1

Sovereign Project | 57018-001

Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago and among the largest contributors of plastic marine debris globally, with 5,000 tonnes of plastic entering Indonesia's ecosystems every day. Plastic pollution damages marine ecosystems, undermines coastal tourism and fishing livelihoods, and introduces microplastics into the food system. More than 60% of plastic waste is either not collected or mishandled with the majority being burnt in the open, this loss of recyclable material to the circular economy, and resulting improper disposal, directly contributes to resulting increases in greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), and air pollution, and hinders the adaption of ecosystems to climate change. To address this issue, the Government of Indonesia has committed to an ambitious target of handling 70% of plastic marine debris by 2025 in a National Action Plan (NAP) for Handling Marine Debris. The Reducing Marine Debris Program is aligned with this action plan.

Description Indonesia is the world's largest archipelago and among the largest contributors of plastic marine debris globally, with 5,000 tonnes of plastic entering Indonesia's ecosystems every day. Plastic pollution damages marine ecosystems, undermines coastal tourism and fishing livelihoods, and introduces microplastics into the food system. More than 60% of plastic waste is either not collected or mishandled with the majority being burnt in the open, this loss of recyclable material to the circular economy, and resulting improper disposal, directly contributes to resulting increases in greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), and air pollution, and hinders the adaption of ecosystems to climate change. To address this issue, the Government of Indonesia has committed to an ambitious target of handling 70% of plastic marine debris by 2025 in a National Action Plan (NAP) for Handling Marine Debris. The Reducing Marine Debris Program is aligned with this action plan. A programmatic approach that combines policy-based loans, technical assistance (TA), and knowledge support was selected to support the government as it allows complex and ambitious reforms to be addressed comprehensively and enables ADB to support acceleration of the implementation of the NAP.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The program is aligned with the government's Indonesia Vision 2045, National Medium-Term Development Plan (RPJMN) 2020-2024 and Low Carbon Development Initiative (LCDI). It is also aligned with ADB's Strategy 2030 as it will contribute to the following operational priorities: (i) addressing remaining poverty and reducing inequalities by improving the delivery of public services; (ii) tackling climate change, building climate and disaster resilience and enhancing environmental sustainability by helping reduce carbon emissions; (iii) making cities more livable by improving access to basic services in urban areas. It will contribute to the pathway three of ADB's Country Partnership Strategy for Indonesia 2020-2024 on strengthening resilience.

    ADB Strengthens Plastic Marine Debris Reduction Program in Indonesia with $500 Million Loan

    ADB has approved a $500 million loan to strengthen Indonesia’s program to reduce plastic marine debris. While a Global Plastic Treaty—an international initiative designed to tackle plastic pollution through a legally binding agreement—is currently being negotiated, this program will focus on supporting the country’s National Action Plan for Handling Marine Debris, which aims to reduce plastic waste flow into the oceans by 70% by 2025.
