Environment
Indonesia is highly vulnerable to natural disasters like flooding, tropical storms, and tsunamis. Indonesia continues to recover from the 2004 tsunami crisis today. Moreover, Indonesia currently faces man-made environmental problems such as deforestation, overfishing, pollution, and wildlife trade.1 Indonesia lost 1.87 million hectares of forest every year between 2000 and 2005.2 The coast of Indonesia supports the majority of the worldâ's coral species and 30% of the worldâ's fish species, making the coastline ecosystem highly valuable.3 60% of Indonesiaâ's population lives along the countryâ's coast, further exacerbating the demands placed on coastline ecosystems.4

Indonesia, a vast polyglot nation, grew more than 6% annually in 2010-12. The government made economic advances under the first administration of President YUDHOYONO (2004-09), introducing significant reforms in the financial sector, including tax and customs reforms, the use of Treasury bills, and capital market development and supervision. During the global financial crisis, Indonesia outperformed its regional neighbors and joined China and India as the only G20 members posting growth in 2009. The government has promoted fiscally conservative policies, resulting in a debt-to-GDP ratio of less than 25%, a fiscal deficit below 3%, and historically low rates of inflation. Fitch ...See More and Moody's upgraded Indonesia's credit rating to investment grade in December 2011. Indonesia still struggles with poverty and unemployment, inadequate infrastructure, corruption, a complex regulatory environment, and unequal resource distribution among regions. The government in 2013 faces the ongoing challenge of improving Indonesia''s insufficient infrastructure to remove impediments to economic growth, labor unrest over wages, and reducing its fuel subsidy program in the face of high oil prices.
