Is an Indonesian DOE needed? Print

In collaboration with the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), YBUL conducted a two day seminar at the Sari Pan Pacific Hotel, Jakarta, on 28 – 29 September 2010. On the first day, a Focus Group Discussion (FGD) was organized to review policy frameworks on a national Designated Operational Entity (DOE), and on the second day a workshop was held to identify potentials organization for becoming a national DOE. The FGD was attended by: speakers from: Ministry of Environment-Indonesia (MOE-I), The National Committee for Climate Changes / Dewan Nasional Perubahan Iklim (DNPI), Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), Japan Quality Assurance (JQA), and participants from: PT. Green Air Solution, PT. South Pole, PT. Asia Carbon, PT. Chevron, PT. Listrindo, UPT. Balai Tekstil, PT. Budi Acid Jaya, Indonesia Power, Indah Karya Register Sertification Services, TUV Rheiland Indonesia, PT. Surveyor Indonesia, BPPT

The workshop was attended by speakers from: MOE-I, DNPI, IGES, JQA, and participants from: PT. Sucofindo, PT. Odira, PT. Surveyor, PT. Mutu Agung Lestari, PT. Chevron, TUV. Rheiland Indonesia, PT. Indah Karya Register Sertification Services, UPT. Balai Tekstil, PT. Energi Alternatif Indonesia, PT. Listrindo, BPPT.

Under the Kyoto Protocol’s Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) scheme, there is a Designated Operational Entity (DOE) – an entity designed by Conference of the Parties/Meetings of the Parties (COP/MOP) based by recommendation by the Executive Board (EB), as qualified to validate proposed CDM activities as well as verify certified emission reductions. The DOE’s primary roles are validation and verification of CDM projects. Validation includes independent evaluation of a project activity against requirements of CDM on the basis of the Project Design Document (PDD). Verification is the periodic independent review and ex-post determination of the monitored Green House Gases (GHG) emission reductions.

As per July 2010, only 48 projects are registered by the CDM-EB, 122 are approved by the Designated National Authority (DNA), and 134 projects have been or are being validated. Compared to other countries, Indonesia is considered slowly developing. For an example, the registered projects in: China – 963, India – 537, Malaysia – 83, Indonesia – 48, Korea – 45, and Thailand – 38. One of the influencing factors of the slow project development was identified as the lack of a national DOE. Presently, at the global level, only 34 DOEs are accredited by the CDM-EB, and there are approximately 3,300 outstanding CDM projects world wide, which leaves about 100 CDM projects for a DOE to validate. Therefore, the first day FGD came to a recommendation that a national DOE is needed to: speed up the project validation processes, may be cheaper in costs, better understanding of local problems, and better communication due to lack of language barriers. Even though some challenges are also foreseen, like: lack of trained personnel, probability of lack of trust from buyers, and increasing competitiveness among existing DOEs.

The second day there are several entities who are interested in becoming a national DOE, which include: PT. Surveyor Indonesia, PT. Sucofindo.
