KONTAN.CO.ID - JAKARTA. The G20 India high-level conference meeting on Saturday (9/9) in the first session raised the theme of One Earth.
On the occasion to speak, President Joko Widodo criticized developed countries about real efforts to protect the earth that are only limited to rhetoric on paper.
Therefore, President Jokowi encourages the acceleration of the low-carbon economic transition as one of the efforts that can be made.
"Unfortunately, the funding commitment of developed countries is still limited to rhetoric and on paper, whether it is climate funding of US$ 100 billion per year, or loss and damage funding facilities," Jokowi criticized as uploaded on his official Instagram account on Saturday (9/9).
The President invites the leaders of the G20 countries to take real action to protect the earth's sustainability.
"Our earth is sick. Last July, the world's temperature reached its highest point and is predicted to continue to rise in the next five years. This will be difficult to withstand unless the world massively and radically blocks it," he said.
The President reminded me at the G20 meeting last year in Bali, Indonesia, that he initiated the G20 Bali Global Blended Finance Alliance.
Indonesia itself has taken several real actions to protect the earth, among others, by efforts to suppress deforestation to mangrove restoration.
