The global discourse on energy transition has taken center stage in an era marked by pressing environmental challenges. Initiatives like the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP) and Indonesia’s pioneering Energy Transition Mechanism (ETM) have emerged as catalysts for change. Established in 2022 alongside the G20 Summit, JETP endeavors to galvanize public and private sector investments in this pivotal transition. Building on this foundation, the Government of Indonesia has introduced the ETM framework, focusing on the Carbon Reduction Facility (CRF) and Clean Energy Facility (CEF). While these initiatives commendably emphasize the technical aspects of renewable energy acceleration, they are urged to place equal emphasis on the human element—the linchpin of an indeed just energy transition. This project delves into the imperative for inclusivity, shedding light on its multifaceted dimensions. From securing livelihoods in industries to transforming and empowering underrepresented groups, particularly women, this narrative advocates for a holistic approach. Furthermore, it underscores the pivotal role of localized, community-driven planning in charting a course toward a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable energy transition.

Method of implementation

At PWYP Indonesia, our mission is driven by a collaborative and comprehensive implementation approach. Here’s an overview of our strategies and activities:

Collaboration: We work closely with several PWYP Asia Pacific members and the Bersihkan Indonesia coalition to address the imperative justice issue in the energy transition.

Research: Our efforts include conducting scoping studies through a feminist lens grounded in the practical experiences of women and vulnerable groups impacted by energy transition. We particularly emphasize the gender and inclusivity aspects.

Impact mitigation: We focus on understanding and mitigating potential impacts on women and vulnerable groups arising from the energy transition.

Awareness campaigns: PWYP Indonesia strives to raise public awareness regarding the critical importance of gender justice in the energy transition. Our campaigns target audiences at national and regional levels.

Government dialogue: We actively dialogue with the national government, advocating for gender and inclusivity considerations in energy transition policy-making. This includes initiatives like JETP, ASEAN, and ETM.

Collaboration with MoSA: We collaborate with the Government of Indonesia, specifically the Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA), in support of their initiatives related to social welfare, poverty alleviation, and sustainable development goals.

Monitoring and evaluation: We employ robust monitoring and evaluation systems aligned with PWYP Indonesia’s quality standards to ensure project success. This system incorporates adaptive learning and management tools to facilitate timely project adjustments.
