Agency-Level Use of Country Safeguard Systems for Indonesia’s State Electricity Company: Draft Equivalence Assessment of Environmental Safeguards

Documents Produced Under Grant/Loans/TA | August 2018

This document assesses the extent of equivalence between the environmental safeguards set out in the Asian Development Bank’s (ADB) 2009 Safeguard Policy Statement (SPS), the framework of Indonesia’s national laws and regulations that establish environmental safeguards, and Indonesia’s State Electricity Company’s (PLN) internal regulations. Law No. 30/2009 on Electricity stipulates that all electricity business activities must comply with the Indonesian Government’s prevailing environmental laws and regulations. The equivalence assessment analyzed more than 80 national and sectoral laws and regulations and PLN regulations which are directly or indirectly related to environmental safeguards.

Documents produced under projects are material produced in the course of the project, or as outputs.

This document dated August 2018 is provided for the ADB project 47287-001 in Indonesia.
