GBPN is implementing a ‘Policy Strategy for Decarbonizing the Buildings Sector in Asia’ which organizes regulatory reform, technical assistance and capacity-building support through a policy cycle of policy planning, adoption, implementation and learning.
By focusing on the developing and implementing residential building energy codes we aim to avoid between 3,907.8 Mt CO2-e and 5,887.0 Mt CO2-e between now and 2050. Incorporating non-code policies such as energy performance certification and investment incentives in our strategy – would boost this to 8,251.9 Mt CO2-e cumulatively over 2021 – 2050).
GBPN aims to achieve this abatement potential to support adoption and implementation of building energy and climate policies in S.E. Asia with a focus on expanding the coverage of residential energy codes in Indonesia, and also developing the capability of policy makers across S.E. Asia to implement them.
