Indonesia will hold the G20 Presidency in 2022 until the climax, namely the G20 Summit which will be held in Nusa Dua, Bali on 15-16 November.
The G20 Summit is a forum that is considered effective in overcoming the global crisis. The reason is, collectively, the members of the G20 represent more than 80 percent of the world economy, 75 percent of international trade, and 60 percent of the world’s population.
The sustainability of Indonesia’s G20 Presidency will be able to continue to encourage the creation of solutions to various global crises, including food availability agreements to be able to overcome the threat of a global food crisis.
Indonesia’s role in this matter is in the spotlight for the global economy. The agreements that emerged were inseparable from the performance of the Indonesian economy which was considered capable of leading the G20.
INDEF economist Andry Satrio Nugroho said the G20 countries would commit to jointly addressing the global food crisis.
“Indeed they have committed to jointly at least have urgency related to the food crisis, because one of the problems of the food crisis is nutrition and poverty,” said Andri, Thursday (11/10/2022)
Minister of Agriculture Syahrul Yasin Limpo also stressed that the main key in overcoming the problem of the global food crisis is to unite and collaborate in overcoming the global food crisis together.
“No country should be left behind and left behind, collaboration is the key to overcome current and future challenges,” said Syahrul.
In line with this, Indonesia as the G20 Presidency is the driving force and impetus in efforts to transition to sustainable energy. This is evident from the government’s commitment to the use of electric vehicles during Indonesia’s G20 Presidency in 2022.
In addition, in a commitment to implementing a sustainable energy transition, the government initiated the preparation of the Net Zero Energy 2060 Roadmap together with the International Energy Agency (IEA).
The Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) said, in an effort to transition to sustainable energy, his party will increase the use of electrical energy and use several renewable energy variables.
“As part of that effort, power plants built after 2030 will only use new and renewable energy. Starting in 2035, power plants will be dominated by various renewable energy variables, while nuclear power plants will be included in this system, in early 2040,” said Arifin.
The G20 Presidency of Indonesia at the G20 Summit to be held in Bali will discuss three priority issues, one of which is the transition to sustainable energy.
To that end, the G20 Forum can produce several concrete agreements in support of the Energy Transition Roadmap to accelerate the transition to clean, sustainable, equitable, affordable and inclusive energy.
