In this financial year (2009-10) DECC has allocated just over £18,500 to the work of the UK-Indonesia Working Group on Environment and Climate Change. The second meeting of the group will be hosted by the Indonesian Government in July 2010. This is a working group between the UK and Indonesian Governments and as such no civil society organisations are expected to participate in the meetings.

The UK Government have an overarching memorandum of understanding covering its work with Indonesia in addressing climate change. Provision is made within this for enhancing capacity building and engagement of key stakeholders, including civil society, compatible with strategic directions developed under the Indonesian National Climate Change Council.
