When Joe Biden announced his victory based on the electoral count, it was met with great joy by decision-makers in the international community. He now has two items on his list of priorities. The first is a rush program to face the pandemic challenges with a new team of advisors, and the second is to rejoin the Paris Agreement and put the United States climate program back on its rightful track.
The news was met with great positivity from most countries, except for some outliers.
Most countries are rejoicing because a Biden victory means that America stands a good chance of getting back on the world map.
The announcement of the COVID-19 program and team leaders is very inspiring, as it can be said that nothing can be done until we have the pandemic crisis under control.
Whether coincidentally or not, a big pharma has announced a 90 percent effectiveness result for its potential coronavirus vaccine. It promises to be in the markets in a few months, with distribution to ordinary Americans by the middle of next year and the rest of the world by the end of next year.
Patience is still needed, but hope is already palpable from the beginning.
When it comes to the climate issue, the US rejoining the Paris Agreement will reactivate a host of programs that had been shelved at the beginning of the Donald Trump presidency. We look forward to the revival of full international cooperation once the Biden presidency restores US commitment.
The evident stagnation in the western community should transform into new dynamics in mitigating global climate change.
Swift and immediate actions at an unprecedented pace and scale will use this window of opportunity to form a more sustainable and inclusive future.
The pandemic has been a wake-up call: The environmental crisis has been with us for far too many years, and it is rapidly becoming a comprehensive catastrophe that will be greater than any pandemic.
Both the US coronavirus program and the country’s reentry to the Paris Agreement have a special relevance for Indonesia. First, because Indonesia is a major victim of the coronavirus, we stand to gain from the US program to accelerate vaccine distribution.
In the climate issue, with the longest coastline in the world after Canada, Indonesia is a potentially serious victim of climate change and global warming.
The US reentry will reinvigorate International cooperation and reset the calendar as soon as the next Conference of Parties (COP).
Indonesia has a lot to gain from a new Paris Agreement calendar, as all agenda items pertain to international cooperation.
That is where Biden will bring us great benefits, regardless of the pros and cons of American politics. It is our hope that America will once again be a member of the community of nations to contribute its share in accelerating global development.
In addition, the Indonesian scientific community will have a channel to participate in these global issues.
So the outcome of this American event, which is very important in its own right, has a significant impact on Indonesia. Indonesia can switch its focus from nonproductive activities like bickering over identity politics and instead concentrate on applying its shared values in a spirit of mutual cooperation.
On Dec. 14, the Electoral College will hold its meeting to elect the 46th president of the US. The projections to date ensure a Biden victory to return America to the global fold. We hope for the best.
