Just to note, that the Government of Indonesia through the Ministry of Finance has compiled a Green Development Planning and Budgeting Strategy. This strategy uses the most effective economic policies and instruments that need to be implemented, through scenarios that show the level of resources that need to be provided for green development investment with the aim of reducing Indonesia's vulnerability to the effects of climate change and the risks of environmental damage and minimizing losses and damage to natural resources due to the development of economic growth.

In line with the national policy framework, WWF actively encourages the implementation of green planning and budgeting by developing an analytical tool called green budget tagging or "Green Budget tagging".

 This tool is a method to see how much planned public budget allocation can be used effectively and efficiently to achieve sustainable development goals.

WWF Indonesia has increased the capacity of regional governments in several priority provinces and districts: Merauke Regency (Papua Province), West Kalimantan Province includes, Melawi Regency, Sintang District, Kapuas Hulu Regency, West Kutai Regency, Mahakam Hulu Regency Wakatobi Regency (Southeast Sulawesi Province ) and East Seram District by conducting training and workshops on Marking Green Budgets.
