Economic and Fiscal Measures for Single-Use Plastic Reduction and Packaging Prevention in Indonesia

Plastic pollution, especially by SUP, is a serious problem worldwide and it also affects Indonesia. To support the Government of Indonesia in addressing plastic waste problems, The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ), which is supported by The German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV), has set up a programme entitled ‘Collaborative Actions for Single-Use Plastic Prevention in Southeast Asia’ (CAP SEA). The programme aims to reduce SUP waste with a clear focus on upstream strategies of prevention and preparation for reuse and recycling. It also fosters public-private sector partnerships to prevent single SUP in line with partner government’s plastic waste reduction policies.

With view of this, one activity in the CAP SEA programme in Indonesia is the establishment of a regulatory framework to implement potential economic and fiscal measures for SUP reduction, packaging prevention, and reducing packaging waste in Indonesia. The overall objective of the activity is to contribute to the development of a circular economy policy framework specifically for packaging and plastics.
