Indonesia’s forests comprise 131 million hectares, or approximately 60% of the country’s overall land area, making it the third largest area of tropical rainforest in the world after the Amazon and Congo Basins. Spread over more than 18,000 islands, the country’s rainforests contain high levels of endemic species. Despite its reputation as a global biodiversity hotspot, the country is also known as one of the top three greenhouse gas emitters from deforestation worldwide. This combination has made Indonesia a high international priority country for forest conservation and REDD+ development activities.

In recent years, the Government of Indonesia has taken steps to curb deforestation and climate change. The national REDD+ taskforce was appointed in 2011 and helped to launch the National Strategy in 2012. National strategy implementation is currently supported by both the UN-REDD Programme and the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF).
