Jakarta (ANTARA) - The Nusantara Capital Authority (OIKN) plans launching the Nusantara Regionally and Locally Determined Contribution (RLDC) document next week during the Conference of the Parties 28 (COP28) climate change event in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates.

"We are indeed planning to launch the Nusantara Regionally and Locally Determined Contribution document, also known as the Nusantara Net Zero Strategies 2045, during the COP28 that will take place in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, next week," OIKN Head Bambang Susantono remarked.

Susantono made the statement during a virtual seminar followed in Jakarta on Friday.

According to the OIKN head, the COP28, scheduled for November 30 to December 12 this year, will serve as the right momentum for the Indonesian government to promote the development of the new capital city (IKN) Nusantara to the international community.

He then affirmed that the OIKN is open to forge cooperation with various parties, adding that the authority will launch the Nusantara RLDC document to make Nusantara the first city in Indonesia that wields such a document.

"I believe this (launch of the document) will be a historical feat not only for IKN Nusantara but also for Indonesia as a whole," he remarked.

Susantono expressed belief that the Nusantara RLDC document would guide parties in Indonesia to take collaborative actions to respond to climate change and resolve likely problems.

He further explained that the Nusantara RLDC document is a living document, thereby translating to the fact that it will continue to adjust to technological developments and new approaches.

Susantono noted that the Nusantara RLDC document will contain a road map that will help IKN Nusantara to achieve four targets related to climate change, such as the one pertaining to Nusantara's vision of becoming a city that produces zero emissions by 2045.

"In the second target, we aim to fight against negative trends, such as deforestation. Hence, we will strive to make IKN a city surrounded by tropical forests that are blessed with biodiversity," he noted.

Meanwhile, the third target concerns the resolve to place IKN Nusantara as a role model for other cities in Indonesia in terms of resilience towards impacts of climate change, he stated.

"As for the final target, we seek to develop IKN as a contribution to the global efforts aimed at dealing with climate change," Susantono elaborated.

He noted that the authority envisions IKN Nusantara as an exemplary for cities around the world in resolving issues and challenges related to climate change.
