Forest and Climate Changes Programme
Description

The programme's overall objective is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the forest sector while improving the livelihoods of Indonesia's poor rural communities. To achieve this goal, the programme team will assist the Indonesian government to design and implement legal, policy and institutional reforms for the conservation and sustainable management of forests, at local, provincial and national level. Support to REDD+ demonstration activities is a key feature of the programme, providing decision-makers with experience of how REDD+ can be implemented "on the ground"

FORCLIME’s Assistance

  • Advice on strategy development for REDD+ and forest development at national, provincial and district levels

  • Technical advice on a framework for the implementation of REDD+ demonstration activities at various levels, including participatory land use planning and forest zoning

  • Innovative design of mechanisms and regulations for district-based REDD+ initiatives

  • Facilitation of monitoring, reporting and verification

  • Support to forestry administration reform processes such as the establishment of forest management units and related monitoring and inspectorate systems

  • Support to nature conservation and benefit sharing within the Heart of Borneo (HoB) Initiative

  • Development of payment for environmental services schemes to support sustainable livelihoods in rural areas

  • Capacity building for sustainable forest management and nature conservation

Financial Cooperation (FC)

The government of Germany commissioned KfW for financial and GIZ for technical support of FORCLIME. REDD demonstration activities financed by KfW are – together with other initiatives (i.e. AusAID; TNC; WWF) – among the first REDD "on the ground projects" in Indonesia (and worldwide). The REDD pilots are meant to demonstrate that local development, sustainable forest management, biodiversity conservation and climate protection go hand-in-hand.

Technical Cooperation (TC)

GIZ works with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry on national policy and sector strategies, to gear these strategies towards the requirements of emission reductions. Effective stakeholder participation is a critical success factor in all planning and strategy development processes.

Description

Funded by the United Kingdom’s Climate Change Unit – The British Embassy, the Asia Foundation’s environmental governance (SETAPAK) program is focused on improving forest and land governance in Indonesia. Good forest and land governance will allow Indonesia’s decentralized governance to ensure transparency and accountability in the management, protection and distribution of benefits from natural resources to achieve pro-poor sustainable growth.

Improving land governance to protect forests and communities in Indonesia

SETAPAK has been working to improve forest and land governance in Indonesia since 2011. The program promotes good forest and land governance in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ensure that the benefits of natural resources are distributed sustainably and equitably.

Indonesia hosts the world’s third largest area of tropical rainforest, which is being destroyed at a rate of 8,400 square kilometres annually. Indonesia’s peatlands are also a vital resource, yet approximately 120,000 square kilometres have been disturbed, in some places irreparably. These changes are responsible for 80 percent of Indonesia’s greenhouse gas emissions, which are the third highest in the world. They also increase the risk of natural disasters such as floods, harm animal and plant life, reduce state revenues, cause land conflict, and affect livelihoods detrimentally.

These issues are critical for Indonesia and the world. To ensure that our responses are strategic, efficient and coordinated, SETAPAK works to promote good forest and land governance in Indonesia.

Shared Resources – Joint Solutions (SRJS)
Description

Shared Resources – Joint Solutions (SRJS) is a 5-year strategic partnership between IUCN NL, WWF Netherlands and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Together with over 50 NGOs and civil society organisations in 16 low- and middle-income countries and international partners, we aim to safeguard healthy, biodiverse ecosystems in order to protect climate resilience, the water supply and food security. We do so by strengthening our joint capacities to increase our influence in multi-stakeholder partnerships with governments and businesses. Together, we are working to strengthen our leverage in successfully advocating for inclusive and green development.

Within the SRJS Initiative, measures were planned to enable civil society organisations (CSOs) with improved understanding and capacity to lobby, advice and interact with businesses and governments on transparency and compliance with environmental standards and laws. The IUCN Environmental Law Centre supports the SRJS initiative to strengthen and support CSOs in environmental lawyering through a mix of tools, including webinars, Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), and workshops.

The program in Indonesia runs on three landscapes, namely Aceh, Papua and North Kalimantan. In North Kalimantan this program focused in Bulungan.
