Jayapura, Jubi – The government’s policy and regulation in reducing the carbon emission need to synchronize with related stakeholders, said the head of the Papua Provincial Environmental Management Agency (BPLH), Noak Kapisa.
“The synchronization comprises budget management to support carbon emission reduction activities,” Noak Kapisa said in Jayapura on Sunday (22/11/2015).
In Papua, Kapisa said, the provincial government has determined three regencies, namely Jayapura, Merauke and Jayawijaya, to be pilot areas of carbon emission reduction activities. For that reason, those regencies are expected to become an example of other regencies to commit to similar activities. “
The commitment is for instance for the local government’s policy to support the carbon emission reduction activity,” he said.
He added the good appliance and well manage of peatland areas are highly expected to reduce the elevated carbon emission that recently continues to be a national issue.
Earlier, the Papua Regional Secretary Hery Dosinaen said the Papua Provincial Government committed to support the green house emission reduction. Its concern was indicated through the completion of two strategic planning documents, namely Strategic Action of Green House Gas (RAD GRK) and Provincial Strategic Action Plan on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (SRAP REDD).
“SRAP REDD+ Papua from the forestry and land based sectors is an integral part of the strategic action of green house gas of Papua Province,” Dosinaen said. (Alexander Loen/rom)
