Indonesia’s forest land covers 60 % of the country’s land area, which makes it the third largest area of tropical rainforest in the world. Indonesia’s forest is therefore important not only for the national economy and local livelihoods, but also for the global environment. Indonesian rainforests are also among the world’s richest in terms of biodiversity and cover a significant proportion of the planet’s tropical deep peat. The Government of Indonesia estimates that, for each year between 2003 and 2006, around 1.17 million ha of forest was cleared or degraded.

Operational phase 1 of Indonesia UN-REDD Programme was closed in October 2012. Since its inception in October 2009, the Programme has worked with relevant government agencies, NGOs/ CSOs, academics and the private sector at national level and in its pilot province, Central Sulawesi, where a multi-stakeholder REDD+ Working Group is very active. The Programme has been instrumental in the development of several decrees. A methodology for Reference Emission Level was developed and a National Forest Inventory database has been set up. The Programme will also prepare a REDD+ implementation plan for Central Sulawesi.

UNEP has been assisting Central Kalimantan with the development of a roadmap for green growth focusing on forest and natural resources. The agency has also helped the region develop a roadmap for green growth focusing on forest and natural resources. In 2012, Indonesia moved towards finalizing indicators for Participatory Governance Assessment (PGA) in the context of REDD+.

Progress against the Warsaw Framework for REDD+

Indonesia’s National Programme (completed in October 2012) has been complemented by targeted support on Participatory Governance Assessments (PGAs), policy-making on fiscal incentives and facilitation of cross-sectoral dialogue.

National REDD+ Strategy/Action Plan
The (former) Ministry of Forestry and REDD+ Task Force identified how findings and recommendations of the PGA can be utilized in the planning and preparation of regional REDD+ strategies and how this may be used. In 2015, two reports to inform the country’s REDD+ efforts and improve forest governance for REDD+ were finalized: i) Indonesia’s Forest Governance Index that builds on the first PGA to provide information on certainty over forest areas, fairness over forest resources, forest management transparency and integrity, and law enforcement capacity; and ii) an Evaluation of Indonesia’s online forest licensing system that polled over 160 forest license applicants and providers to identify, through eleven indicators, inefficiencies and suboptimal practices in the process of applying and obtaining forest licenses. Forest governance improvements was included as one of the key targets and policy directions in the results framework of MoEF’s strategic plan. An assessment
of a Multi-donor Approach was launched, the report addresses weaknesses in judiciary and law enforcement coordination on forest crimes and comes up with a set of recommendations on how to make use of the existing methodology.
