Building resilient policy strategies

The Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN) has worked closely with local building experts and policy makers in Indonesia over the past two years to refine a set of strategies aimed at enabling the decarbonisation of the built environment through policy reform.

These seven key strategies  have been developed through a bottom-up and highly participative process. They aim to support public and private sector stakeholders to better work together toward achieving common decarbonisation goals. 

It is anticipated that these strategies can be effectively applied in many parts of the world where similar policy development and implementation challenges are present. 

Primarily targeting policy makers, these strategies are housed within a living, operational document that provides ‘know-how’ and guidance toward well adopted and effectively implemented policy reforms with quantified and data-driven contributions toward reaching NDC targets. 

The strategies rely on an in-depth analysis and understanding of the status-quo and the building regulatory framework. The main goal is to foster vertical-horizontal coordination, to avoid ineffective overlaps and provide opportunities for up-scaling interventions as well as synergies of action.

7 Policy Strategies

The 7 policy strategies come from a bottom-up approach through a variety of means, including:

  • Consultation with local experts
  • Insights from GBPN’s international network
  • Desk research 
  • Workshops and Focus Group Discussions with public and private stakeholders
  • Webinars
  • Direct inputs from GBPN’s live pilot projects at a national and subnational level
  • Understanding of how to implement policy reform and regulatory programs at a national level.

This is a fundamental point of difference for GBPN, as our teams are engaging deeply with local experts, local regulatory processes and laws, the evidence-base and the GBPN collective intelligence.
