Indonesia has enormous potential for renewable energy, from hydropower, geothermal, wind, underwater currents to solar power. However, renewable energy development requires massive investments, technology transfer and global climate funding – which implies international support. 

The Inter-Parliamentary Union is an international organization for parliaments around the world. Founded in 1889, the organization has 179 parliamentary members and 13 associate members. The IPU’s mission is to promote democratic leadership and political processes, and work with parliaments and parliamentarians to meet the needs and aspirations of the people. 

The IPU Assembly is the only global forum that assembles parliamentarians worldwide to discuss and promote various international agendas of common interest. Through this forum, members of parliament representing the public interest will adopt critical resolutions related to security, democracy, social issues, economic challenges and development faced now and in the future.
