The Indonesian delegation to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, Mexico, is hopeful that the meeting will agree on the provision of new funds to address the impacts of climate change, its chief said.

The funds would be used for adaptation and mitigation efforts, including REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) plus program, transfer of technology, and capacity building, Rachmat Witoelar, head of the Indonesian delegation to the Cancun meeting, said in a press statement here Thursday.

Indonesia would try its best to represent the interests of all developing countries when the meeting reached a negotiation stage, he said.

"Indonesia will still become a locomotive of the negotiations by bringing up crucial issues important for developing countries, such as adaptation funds provision, CDM mechanism reform, and capacity building implementation," he said.

Witoelar, concurrently a special envoy of the Indonesian president for climate change issues, said the Indonesian delegation would also push for an agreement on the preparations and implementation of the REDD plus program.

The 16th Conference of the Parties (COP) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is being held in Cancun, Mexico, from November 29 to December 10, 2010, with around 15,000 participants from 192 countries attending.

Witoelar hoped that the Cancun meeting would be able to produce a readjusted and balanced agreement for all parties as mandated in the Bali Action Plan.

"Indonesia has a very clear hope from this on going multilateral process in Cancun," he said.

Advanced countries must have commitment and are obliged to cut their gas emissions, he said.

"For them (advanced nations), this should be an obligation. While countries which are not parties to the Kyoto Protocol, must also reduce their emissions at equal rate to those of the parties," he said.
