REDD + Partnership Low Carbon Development Pathways

Brief Overview

Indonesia’s Green House Gas emissions are the third largest than any nation. Deforestation on forests and peat land contributes 85 percent of Indonesia’s emissions. Kemitraan is committed to contribute significant reduction in greenhouse gas emission from deforestation, forest degradation and peat land conversion through conducting a policy dialogue on international climate change policy, in particular international policy on REDD+, and collaboration in supporting the development and implementation of Indonesia’s REDD+ strategy.

 

The program purpose is to intensify multi-stakeholders engagement in the implementation of REDD+ and low carbon development pathways at national and sub national level in Central Kalimantan.

 

With CLUA support, Kemitraan will continue its facilitation roles in mobilizing its network of resources and knowledge to create opportunities that would narrow the gap of knowledge and subsequently build stronger base of engagement in forest and climate governance, especially in following up national and international commitments on reducing emissions. Kemitraan and its partners are keen to conduct all of proposed activities to pursue equality of rights and access to participate in addressing forest and climate challenges
