Gustya Indriani is a Consultant at OPML Jakarta working on climate change, energy, natural resource management and poverty reduction issues. She holds a Bachelor degree in Environmental Engineering from Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB) Indonesia, an MSc in Environmental Engineering from Hamburg-Harburg University of Technology (TUHH) Germany and a Master degree in Global Technology Management from Northern Institute of Technology (NIT) Germany.
Gustya has an extensive knowledge on climate change and energy, due to extensive work in these sectors since 2004. Her previous assignments on these issues required her to identify opportunities of combatting climate change through various sectors, including by implementing renewable energy activities in rural areas of Aceh and Sulawesi. Gustya’s other projects also include work on: natural resource management, poverty reduction, sustainable development, environmental economics, governance and political economy analysis.
She worked for an NGO focusing on climate change, energy and sustainable transport from 2005 – 2009, then working for DFID from 2009 – 2012, predominantly focusing on climate change, as well as on disaster/humanitarian and governance projects.
Gustya has been working for OPML since 2012, and throughout this time has been involved in a variety of projects, including those on political economy analysis, which required close liaison with many Indonesian governmental departments and officials, programmes, donors, NGOs and community members.
She has experience in conducting monitoring and reviews of programmes, both in her former position as a DFID staff member, as well as during her time as a Consultant at OPML Indonesia. Her previous job in the oil and gas industry, combined with her involvement in the Indonesia Mining White Paper study and political economy analysis of energy security in Indonesia, gave her experience in the mining sector; this enriches her background on environmental and climate change issues.
