Indonesia Gets Australian Climate Aid

Australia has allocated 45 million Australian dollars (USD44 million) to help Indonesia deal with the adverse effects of climate change.

Of the amount, 30 million Australian dollars will be used to help develop an Indonesian carbon accounting system, while the remaining 15 million Australian dollars will back the Asian nation’s climate adaptation measures.

The funding forms part of Australia’s 599 million Australian dollars fast-track climate pledge announced in June.
