A World Bank study that cited Indonesia as the world’s third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases was wrong, an Indonesian report sent to the United Nations on Monday said.

Indonesia is seen as a key player in forthcoming international climate talks because its greenhouse gas emissions from peatbogs and deforestation are a major contributor to warming.

But the World Bank report which put Indonesia after the US and China was not accurate, according to the government’s Second National Communication — a formal report on the state of emissions.
