Indonesia’s forests comprises 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 Africa’s the Congo Basin. Spread over more than 18,000 islands, the country’s rainforests contain high levels of endemic specifies. Despite its reputation as a global biodiversity hotspot, the country is also known as one of top three greenhouse gas emitters worldwide, with 37% of emissions due to deforestation. 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).

  • REDD+ Activities in Indonesia

    The chart shows the REDD+ activities supported by the different donor institution types. The list of activities and definitions was drawn from broad agreement among REDD+ experts, including the civil society national partners collecting data across the initiative countries.

    It is important to note that the absence of support for an activity from a specific donor type does not constitute a lack of attention to the activity overall, since the activity could be well-funded through other donor types.

    In Indonesia, the activity that was supported by all donor types was stakeholder engagement. With such large amounts of REDD+ finance flowing into the country, most donors are providing funding to all activity types, with the exception of one of the public-private consortiums and the supranational institutions.

    Stakeholder engagement: Funding aimed at improving participation of non-governmental stakeholders through the design, implementation, and/or monitoring phases of REDD+, and/or funding that promotes media outreach.

    Rights and tenure: Funding directed at addressing issues of rights and tenure – including clarifying land, property and carbon rights.

    MRV and reference levels: Funding aimed at improving the monitoring, reporting and/or verification of REDD+, including changes in forest cover, forest degradation, biodiversity, or social and governance levels. Funding to define or implement reference levels to measure emissions, co-benefits and governance in country.

    Safeguards: Funding aimed at identifying barriers to forest conservation and enabling social and environmental benefits.

    Policy and law analysis & development, REDD strategy development & advocacy: Funding aimed at promoting research, advocacy and outreach to policymakers.

    Institutional strengthening: Funding aimed at developing in-country public institutions, ministries, staffing capacity and resources for REDD+.

    Forest carbon project design: Funding aimed at developing project design documents (PDDs) and validation activities. This includes credited projects that go to the market and those that want REDD+ payments.

    Improved forest and land management to reduce deforestation and degradation (implementation): Funding supporting protected areas, sustainable forest management, and reforestation management activities – including enforcement and compliance.

    Carbon offsets and performance-based payments for improved forest and land management: Funding aimed at carbon offsets, direct payments, actual benefits sharing, and actual payments such as incentive and performance-based payments.

    Other: Funding aimed at REDD+ activities that do not fall within the broad categories listed. For example, funding that is listed as technical support.

  • Proportion of REDD+ activities partially funded by initiatives in Indonesia

    The chart shows the number of REDD+ activities at least partially supported by donor commitments. The main activities included in projects were stakeholder engagement, law and policy analysis, and institutional strengthening. Approximately half of all projects addressed rights and land tenure, as well as practical steps to improve forest and land management. Activities which received attention from only a small portion (one-tenth) of the projects include forest carbon project design and performance-based payments.

    Stakeholder engagement: Funding aimed at improving participation of non-governmental stakeholders through the design, implementation, and/or monitoring phases of REDD+, and/or funding that promotes media outreach.
