The Green Prosperity Project seeks to address critical challenges to economic growth while supporting the Government’s commitment to a more sustainable, less carbon-intensive future.

Green Prosperity (GP) is one of MCA-Indonesia’s projects under the Indonesia Compact signed by the Government of Indonesia with Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to catalyze sustainable development program at the local level. The objectives of this US $332.5 million project are:

  • To increase agricultural productivity and household livelihoods by improving land use practices and management of natural resources, and
  • To reduce reliance on fossil fuels and emissions of landbased greenhouse gases by expanding renewable energy.

To achieve its objectives, the GP Project aims to develop, finance, and implement green growth projects at the districtlevel that promote entrepreneurship, strengthen district-level spatial planning, expand access to renewable energy, and improve environmental stewardship. The GP Projects’ main activities include:

  • Participatory Land Use and Planning
  • Technical Assistance and Oversight
  • Green Prosperity Facility – grant financing
  • Green Knowledge – knowledge sharing

The GP Project is strategically placed to bring together the key partners for development success; national and local governments, donors, the private sector, civil society, and local communities – to collaborate together in landscapes throughout Indonesia where their efforts will have the greatest long-term impacts. Establishing public-private partnerships will streamline design and implementation of project activities, and increase the likelihood of success.

Private sector partners will be invited to participate in projects that expand existing projects, or implement new projects that introduce innovative business models that can be replicated in other areas. Projects will involve local communities and governments in activities to improve the clarity and implementation of government policies and regulations in support of low carbon development. Communities will increase household incomes and build capacity for natural resource and environmental management. The GP Project’s holistic landscape approach will be a highly relevant development model for Indonesia and other countries.
