President SBY has also appointed him to head the Judicial Mafia Eradication Task Force, and the Special Task Force on REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation).

Previously, he was the Head of Rehabilitation and Reconstruction Agency (BRR) in Aceh 2005-2009.  As the Head of BRR, he led the reconstruction effort with funding of nearly US$8 billion, of which 70% was foreign assistance. The reconstruction outcome has become an international role model for post-disaster management.  Dr. Kuntoro also played a significant role in the Indonesian energy and natural resources sector, where he was the Minister for Mining and Energy (1998-1999) and CEO of PLN (state electricity company), 2000-2001.
