Indonesia has done various efforts as part of its contribution to control climate change, Indonesian Ambassador to Germany Eddy Pratomo said.He is the chairman of Indonesian delegation to the the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Bonn, Germany from June 3 to 14, 2013.

Indonesia`s Berlin Embassy spokesman Ayodhia Kalake told Antara here on Saturday that during the meeting in Bonn the partner countries signed UN Convention to discuss a new legal framework to control climate change to be adopted in 2015 and implemented starting in 2020.

Kalake said that during the UNFCCC in Bonn, Indonesian delegation explained various efforts to control the climate change.

Indonesia admitted that the efforts were not simple matters because of limited funds and capacity.

"But Indonesia stated that it has a strong national commitment and that it should be supported internationally in the form of funds and technology," he said.

Besides the UN Convention, the global climate change control relies on Kyoto Protocol which requires industrialized countries to reduce emission.

The partner countries discussed increased action of emission reduction, adaptation to the horrific impacts of climate change, and provision of funds and technology for developing countries from 2013 to 20120.
