About Ambitious City Promise (ACP)
Ambitious City Promise (ACP) is a project that aims to support the creation of a “City Promise” in contributing to national GHG mitigation targets through their own ambitious mitigation plans and activities in Southeast Asian large cities in Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam. The aim can be achieved through establishing strong GHG reduction commitments, local climate action plans directed by concrete targets, enhanced multi-stakeholder engagement, and integrated strategies.
ACP is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) through its International Climate Initiative (IKI). The project is implemented by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability in close cooperation with Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) who successfully implemented the Promise of Seoul, a comprehensive climate action that involves community participation in its implementation. In Indonesia, the project is implemented in DKI Jakarta as a model city, Tangerang and Bekasi City as satellite cities.
Through ACP project, ICLEI and DKI Jakarta Provincial Government developed Ikhtiar Jakarta document, a document outlines the stakeholders’ commitment which was developed using the participatory and inclusive approach. Moreover, this project provides an online citizen engagement platform which individuals can pledge to show their concrete action in reducing GHG emission in DKI Jakarta.
The project also allows religious groups to be involved in accelerating climate action by developing the Interfaith Guidebook to tackle climate change based on the following six religions: Islam, Protestantism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism. The guide consists of three books, namely: Religious Perspectives on Human and Climate Change, Eco-Worship Building and Eco-Preaching. These guidebooks will be used to raise awareness of climate change and promote the behavioural change of people to reduce GHG emissions by adopting sustainable lifestyles in daily activities.
