On July 8 2015, UNORCID launched the “Forest Ecosystem Valuation Study (FEVS): Indonesia” Report in Jakarta. The study was undertaken by UNORCID with funding support from the United Nations Environment Protection Programme (UNEP). The FEVS report demonstrates the results and analysis of the multiple benefits provided by forest related ecosystem services for Indonesia’s economy and the impact it has on the livelihoods of the rural communities.

Dr. Nur Masripatin, the Director-General for Climate Change Control, delivered the keynote speech on behalf of the Minister of Environment and Forestry. She emphasized that, “the results of the study can help Indonesia achieve its green goals, through REDD+ implementation, by increasing awareness among politicans, at the national and subnational level, and internalising green economy principles in our development.” The FEVS report shows how critical provisioning services such as timber can add a substantial amount to the Indonesian economy and hence problems such as degradation in forest areas can lead to a significant decrease in source of revenue.

The study leader, Mr. Pavan Sukhdev, UNEP Goodwill Ambassador, explained the need for the project and highlighted the major findings in his presentation. This was followed by a discussion that was moderated by Dr. Efransjah, CEO of WWF-Indonesia. The event ended with the hope that this report will inspire and be the first step in preserving Indonesia’s tropical forests, as it highlighted that Indonesia’s forests play a critical role in not only climate change mitigation but also in supporting the country’s transition towards a green economy.
