JAKARTA - On June 19, the U.S. Agency for International Development Mission Director Andrew Sisson signed an agreement awarding $5 million USD to the Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF) alongside the Ministry of National Development Planning Deputy Minister and ICCTF Board of Trustees Chairwoman Endah Murniningtyas. This contribution will fund Indonesian non-governmental organizations' (NGOs) climate change programs.

"From changing weather patterns that affect food production, to rising sea levels that increase the risk of coastal flooding, Indonesia faces a wide range of climate change-related threats," said USAID Mission Director Sisson. "The United States is proud to support the Indonesian Climate Change Trust Fund and continue our history of partnering with the Indonesian government to tackle important global challenges.  Climate change is a shared global priority that requires the action of governments, private companies, NGOs, and citizens, and it's impressive that this Fund involves all these stakeholders in Indonesia."
