Environment and Climate Change
Indonesia is the second mega-biodiversity country in the world after Brazil. Indonesia also has no less than 90 types of ecosystems. Although only has 1.3% land area of the world, Indonesia has 25% of fish species in the world, 17% of bird species, 16% of reptiles and amphibians, 12% of mamals, and 10% of flower species.
Indonesia, which consists of about 17,500 islands, has the world’s largest tropical forest after Brazil with an area of about 114 million hectares and covers more than half the tropical forests which now belong to Asia.
However, certain traditional economic development pattern will always give a hard pressure on the environment and the support capacity for human life in both present and future. Green Economy which is now being pushed to be used is an effort to improve human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcity. Green Economy is the concept of low-emission development, efficient resource management and social equity upholding.
Penabulu believes that sustainable development is almost entirely lies on the right economic concept. It is clear that the development of low emission or green economy still requires strong support from civil society organizations in Indonesia. Employment and income growth should be driven by investments that reduce emissions and pollution, increase energy efficiency and resource utilization, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
The program encourages institutional strengthening of civil society organizations, cooperatives and groups of small and medium enterprises in management and technical capabilities of conservation, strengthening community in the management of natural resources, development tools and guidelines, facilitate policy dialogue at national and local level as well as the best documentation of best practices and the lesson learned.

The first CARE package arrived in Le Havre, France, in May 1946, the first of a wave of responses to millions in need of food and relief supplies at the end of World War II. Known then as the Cooperative for American Remittances to Europe, it consisted of 22 American charities of civic, religious, cooperative and labour backgrounds. CARE took possession of 2.8 million USA army surplus packages in 1946, each containing enough food to feed ten people for one day, or one person for ten days. The packages contained staples such as butter, dried milk, canned meat, and sometimes even chocolate and chewing gum.
More than seven decades later and counting, CARE has evolved to become one of the largest poverty-fighting organizations in the world, providing relief to people hit by disasters and emergencies, and contributing to economic empowerment that strengthens livelihoods over the long term, starting with women and girls who are often marginalized and among the world’s poorest. From communities facing severe drought in Ethiopia to families torn apart by wars in Syria and Yemen, these are just a few of CARE’s activities in more than 90 countries.

The Australian Consulate-General in Makassar promotes business, education, people-to-people and cultural links between Australia and eleven provinces in eastern Indonesia: East Kalimantan, South Kalimantan, South Sulawesi, Southeast Sulawesi, West Sulawesi, Central Sulawesi, Gorontalo, North Sulawesi, Maluku, North Maluku and West Papua province. The Consulate-General also provides consular and passport services to Australian citizens in these provinces.
Eastern Indonesia is a vast area of over 11,000 islands and more than 51 million people who have a diverse and deep cultural and linguistic heritage. It is an area rich in mineral and natural resources, has extensive mountain, coastal and island zones of great natural beauty, and seas rich in fish and other marine resources.
Australia has a long history of trade and contact with the peoples of eastern Indonesia. For example, since at least the 1700s, Makassan traders sought sea-cucumber (trepang) and other resources from northern Australia for on-sale to merchants from imperial China. Strong relationships were built between the Makassans and the indigenous people of northern Australia. Today, our trading and business links with the eastern provinces of Indonesia are growing fast as the east opens up and new ports, bridges, airports, and industries are built. Tourism, education and agriculture are key areas of growth where Australian businesses, institutions, experts and social enterprises play an important role. Our mining and mining service companies have long been well established in the eastern islands, and will continue to be important contributors to economic growth in the region.
The Consulate-General in Makassar develops and maintains a wide range of networks across all our eleven provinces, drawing on the skills, knowledge and experiences of people from both our countries. We see great potential for building stronger trade and investment links in agriculture, mining services, sustainable tourism and new technologies; strengthening connections between schools and educational institutions in Australia and eastern Indonesia; building connections with our growing alumni groups; and strengthening links between regional governments in eastern Indonesia and regional Australia.
