Prakarsa C20 Japan 2019

Presiden Joko Widodo menjadikan infrastruktur sebagai sektor prioritas sebagai upaya untuk mendorong konektivitas dan mengurangi ketimpangan. Namun dalam praktiknya pembangunan infrastruktur kerap menyisakan pelbagai persoalan lingkungan, sosial, dan Hak Asasi Manusia.

Negara-negara G20 di bawah Presiden Jepang menjadikan Quality Infrastructure Investment sebagai salah satu isu prioritas. Ini berarti pembiayaan infrastruktur tak hanya harus mematuhi standar ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) namun juga harus mendukung tujuan pembangunan untuk peningkatan kualitas hidup, konektivitas, dan pelayanan publik dengan menggunakan sumber daya yang ada secara bertanggung jawab dan berkelanjutan

ResponsiBank Indonesia sebagai bagian dari Fair Finance Asia berkesempatan untuk mengisi sesi “Responsible Investment for Quality Infrastructure” dalam pertemuan C20 pada 23 April 2019 di Tokyo, Jepang. Sesi ini diisi oleh Toshiyuki Miyoshi (Direktur Divisi Kebijakan Pembangunan Kementerian Keuangan Jepang), Petter Matthews (Direktur Eksekutif CoST: The Infrastructure Transparency Initiative), Han Chen (Manajer Kebijakan Energi, Program Internasional Natural Resources Defense Council/NRDC) dan Dia Mawesti (Sustainable Development Officer Prakarsa) dan dimoderatori oleh Bernadette Victorio (Program Coordinator Oxfam in Cambodia).


President Joko Widodo made infrastructure a priority sector as an effort to encourage connectivity and reduce inequality. But in practice infrastructure development often caused various environmental, social, and human rights issues.

The G20 countries under Japan Presidency put Quality Infrastructure Investment as one of the priority issues. This means that infrastructure financing must not only comply with ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) standards, but also support development goals to improve quality of life, connectivity, and public services by using existing resources responsibly and sustainably.

ResponsiBank Indonesia as part of Fair Finance Asia had the opportunity to raise our concerns on Quality Infrastructure Investment in the “Responsible Investment for Quality Infrastructure” session at the C20 meeting on April 23, 2019 in Tokyo, Japan. The session conducted a fruitfull discussion between civil society and government official represented by Toshiyuki Miyoshi (Director of the Development Policy Division of the Japanese Ministry of Finance), Petter Matthews (Executive Director of CoST: The Infrastructure Transparency Initiative), Han Chen (Energy Policy Manager, International Natural Resources Defense Council / NRDC) and Dia Mawesti (Sustainable Development Officer Prakarsa) and moderated by Bernadette Victorio (Oxfam in Cambodia Program Coordinator)
