With 108,000 km of tropical coastlines and over 17,500 islands, Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world, making it a hotspot for marine and terrestrial biodiversity. Its geographical location also makes it one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world (earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions) and among the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change (rising temperatures and sea levels, floods).
Indonesia has the top economy in Southeast Asia and sixteenth largest in the world and is a member of the G20. The country has experienced consistent economic growth since the Asian crisis of 1997 and the democratization of the regime in 1998. This growth, combined with a tripling of the population in sixty years, has created opportunities as well as major challenges, including increasing demand for energy and transport, rapid urbanization, overexploitation of natural resources, and environmental pollution.
In light of these challenges and in keeping with Indonesia’s sustainable development priorities, AFD is helping the country pursue low-carbon development as part of its fair and resilient transition.
AFD’s office in Jakarta opened in 2007. It is attached to the Southeast Asia Regional Office based in Bangkok.
