Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) is a team of analysts and advisors that works with policy makers around the world to improve the most important land use and energy policies, with a particular focus on finance. CPI works in places that provide the most potential for policy impact including Brazil, China, Europe, India, Indonesia and the United States. Our work helps nations grow while addressing increasingly scarce resources and climate risks. This is a complex challenge in which policy plays a crucial role.

In Indonesia, at the national level, CPI partners with the Ministry of Finance to support the Ministry’s work to improve fiscal policies and instruments to encourage the transition to a green economy and the optimization of land and energy resources.
