Reducing Our Carbon Footprint: The Action Starts From You!

Saving energy at home, taking public transportation, using a bike or electric vehicle to work and school, not wasting so much food, and more activities are some ways to take actions regarding our climate crisis. However, this kind of action is run by individuals, and maybe some of you think that implementing this kind of action is not really necessary. Because, if one individual doesn’t, there are still the others who perform the actions.

The fact is, based on the Emissions Gap Report (EGP) 2020, the global average of emissions was 6.3 TONS OF CO2 EQUIVALENT PER PERSON. Wow, that is really a big amount of carbon, right? Imagine, if there are 7,8 billion people in the world, and a single individual producing 6.3 tons of carbon, that will be 49.140 tons of carbon EVERY YEAR IN OUR EARTH. Now, do you really think this is not necessary?

At this point, based on the 2022 Emissions Gap Report, by the end of the century there will be a global temperature rise in place to a 2.8°C. When we still stay on today’s practice in limiting carbon emissions, it will only reduce the temperature rise to a 2.4-2.6°C, outrageously far from the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to well below 2°C, preferably 1.5°C.

To prevent this climate disaster and reach the Paris Agreement goal, the average emissions-per-person per year need to significantly drop to around 2-2.5 tons by 2030. To achieve that number, only a serious action and an urgent system-wide transformation can deliver the enormous cuts needed by 45%. So, how can we preserve a liveable climate and make a commitment to this serious action?

The actions needed for these kinds of goals not only come from the big system, but also from the smaller and the smallest system living in our world. The climate agreement by the UN, the policy made by the government, the programs made by some corporations and organizations, and other bigger actions can only make the goal if we also start the actions from the bottom: ourselves. 

Save energy at home, take public transportation or start to walk or bike, consume more plant-based products, not waste food, reduce, reuse, repair, and recycle, using sustainable energy, and the most important is to speak up and take actions. Reducing the carbon footprint from our individual practices will help tackle the climate crisis, and the actions start from you!

After a sideline discussion at the Ocean Conference 2017 in New York City and a follow-up Conference on the Archipelagic and Island States Forum in Jakarta in 2017, a common understanding among AIS participating countries was born. The Archipelagic and Island States Forum was then formally established through the adoption of the Manado Joint Declaration during the first Ministerial Meeting of the participating countries on 1 November 2018.

The Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum is a platform designed to include island states and archipelagic countries regardless of their region, size, and development level. A global initiative that brings together 51 archipelagic and island nations to take part in a collective forum addressing challenges of ocean resource usage for sustainable economic growth, climate change resiliency, ocean pollution, emergency management, and the enhancement of sustainable fisheries.

 

The Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum stands as a visionary platform, purposefully crafted to encompass the participation of 51 diverse archipelagic and island nations from across the globe. Its overarching mission is to facilitate a collective forum aimed at addressing the pressing issue of sustainable development. Within this forum, these nations come together to forge international partnerships and foster cooperation in their shared commitment to sustainable development. By uniting their efforts and expertise, the AIS Forum plays a pivotal role in harnessing the collective power of these island states to tackle the environmental, economic, and social challenges they face while striving to build a more sustainable and interconnected world.
Five years after the establishment of the AIS Forum, leaders from AIS countries have agreed to strengthen commitment for collaboration among nations. On 11th October 2023 in Bali, Indonesia, at the First High Level Meeting of the AIS Foru,, 32 AIS countries agreed to adopt the Leaders’ Declaration on the Solidarity of the Archipelagic and Island States. The adoption of this declaration marked a significant step for the AIS Forum to further elevate its position in the global scheme. The Declaration focuses on four collaborative areas, which are:

Our Team offers an insightful glimpse into the exceptional individuals who comprise the driving force behind the Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum. These dedicated professionals work cohesively to realize our mission and objectives. The AIS Forum, as a platform, is thoughtfully designed to incorporate the active participation of 51 archipelagic and island states from various corners of the world, uniting them within a collective forum to address the critical concerns of sustainable development.

The AIS Forum’s role is to facilitate close cooperation between archipelagic and island states in its four working areas. The forum has fostered connections and collaborative projects through its partnerships with private enterprises, government authorities, universities, NGOs, media and global or regional organisations. This approach aims to create a network of experts, researchers and policymakers who can provide insight and support to the AIS programme.
