sustainable development, global HRM, global environmental governance, green economic diplomacy


Objective: This study analyzes the development of global human resources and green economy diplomacy in the Indonesian context and their impact on Global Environmental Governance, focusing on the renewable energy sector and the environment. This research highlights important issues related to environmental sustainability and the Indonesian government's efforts to promote sustainable practices through Global HR development and green economic diplomacy.


Methods: The research methodology involves a theoretical analysis and literature review. The HR Global Environmental Competency Model and Green Economic Diplomacy serve as the conceptual frameworks for the analysis. Data collected from various sources, including academic journals, books, government reports, and relevant publications, are systematically analyzed.


Results: The analysis reveals the Indonesian government's commitment to sustainable development and the implementation of policies and programs supporting renewable energy, investment in the renewable energy sector, and environmental protection. The HR Global Environmental Competency Model and Green Economic Diplomacy play crucial roles in enhancing human resources and promoting sustainable practices. These initiatives contribute to the strengthening of Global Environmental Governance in Indonesia.


Conclusion: The findings indicate that the Indonesian government's efforts in developing global human resources and implementing green economic diplomacy have a positive impact on Global Environmental Governance. However, this research has limitations in terms of its focus on Indonesia's renewable energy sector and the lack of empirical analysis. Future studies should involve empirical research, engage various stakeholders, and conduct comparative studies with other countries to gain a more comprehensive understanding of best practices and challenges in Global Environmental Governance.
