Besides, the government is mulling the use of nuclear energy for power plants.

The chief minister said Indonesia adopted two wide-ranging approaches to achieve the target of the climate change agenda through energy diversification and energy conservation efforts.

Indonesia has been committed to the Paris Agreement through the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to cut carbon emissions by 29 percent in 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2060 or earlier.

The commitment is crucial as natural disasters, such as floods and landslides, affecting Indonesia in the past few years as the impact of climate change.

He said despite an economic slowdown in Indonesia, this momentum can push economic structural reforms, particularly those related to climate change.

"We did it during the Covid-19 pandemic. Hence, when the pandemic almost ends, we will start economic restructuring and transformation," he said.
