The Indonesian forest and land-use sector represents a significant source of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, a function of having one of the world’s largest forest estates, coupled with high rates of deforestation, forest degradation and large areas of degraded peatlands. As such, the Government of Indonesia (GOI) has commited to reducing GHG emissions by up to 26% below ‘business as usual’ levels by 2020, and by up to 41% if international assistance is forthcoming. Up to 80% of these proposed reductions will be gained from changes to forest and peatland management. Indonesian efforts are expected to be enhanced through access to international finance that will support policy, planning and on-site activities to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, and the role of conservation, sustainable management of forest and enhancement of forest carbon stocks, commonly known as REDD+.
