Recently the impact of climate change has been an increasingly important policy issue to the Indonesian government. It makes serious programs to support the global climate change mitigation action. This article is aimed at analyzing the application of Indonesia’s climate change policy. The focus is on crucial problems that constrain its effectiveness both at international and domestic levels. The discussions indicate that Indonesia’s multilateral diplomacy to protect the environment is affected by the rise of global power politics as the consequence of the contestation between China and the United States.

To conclude, however, this author tries to offer some potential solutions for strategic planning and policy improvement.
