SUBJECT: INDONESIA UPDATE - MAJOR ECONOMIES MEETING, CLIMATE CHANGE
COMMISSION

REF: A. JAKARTA 324
B. JAKARTA 156

1. (SBU) According to preliminary information from the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs (Deplu), Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani might lead
the Indonesian delegation to the next Major Economies Meeting
(MEMIII) in Paris this month. There will be four persons in the
delegation, possibly including a representative from the National
Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS). Post will follow up and
provide confirmation of this.

2. (SBU) Separately, Post reported President Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono (SBY) was going to issue a decree establishing a National
Climate Change Commission (NCCC) by the end of February (ref A).
Our Ministry of Environment contacts now say that President SBY's
international travel schedule delayed the decree, but that it is now
"on the President's desk" awaiting his signature. During the March
27 monthly Environmental Donors Coordination Meeting in Jakarta,
other donor representatives confirmed they are also expecting the
decree in early April.

3. (SBU) It is unclear what role the NCCC will play in international
climate change talks. Debate on this, and the proposed NCCC's
detailed role and responsibilities in general, may also have
contributed to the delay. One of the NCCC's primary
responsibilities will be to monitor compliance with and
implementation of Indonesia's National Action Plan for Addressing
Climate Change, released in November 2007. BAPPENAS will serve as
the NCCC's Secretariat, while a Steering Committee to serve as the
day-to-day coordinator or implementer of the Commission's mandate.
BAPPENAS will play a planning role, but other Ministries will have
equal responsibilities.
