Forest & climate protection program
GFA supports the Government of Indonesia in the formulation, implementation and monitoring of its Forest & Climate Protection Program. The program will contribute to the implementation of Indonesia’s climate policy through the introduction of the REDD mechanism. Forest protection measures and sustainable forest management aim at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from forestry while improving the living conditions of impoverished strata of the rural population. The program’s focus will be on creating an enabling national framework, piloting REDD activities at district level, defining benchmark emission levels and monitoring carbon stocks.
