II. Organizational Context
The East Kalimantan Jurisdictional Emissions Reduction Program (ER Program) is a national project to reduce deforestation and forest degradation. This program covers 12.7 million ha of East Kalimantan Province of which 6.5 million ha (54%) is still covered by tropical rainforests which are home to a wealth of globally significant biodiversity, and that support indigenous and other local communities.

The ER Program supports a combination of enabling conditions and promotion of sustainable management practices to address the underlying drivers of emissions. As much as 86.3 million tCO2e of (gross) emission will be reduced over a five and a half-year period (2019-2024) by this ER Program. The Accounting Area for the ER Program covers the entire boundary of the East Kalimantan Province, covering seven districts and three cities, 103 sub-districts, and 1,032 villages (BPS, 2017), and is not only limited to the state forest in the East Kalimantan Province.

The ER Program is implemented by all beneficiaries with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) and the East Kalimantan Provincial Government as the responsible bodies for managing the proposed ER Program. Relevant agencies in the central, provincial, districts and village governments will be involved in the project implementation following the directions of the MoEF and East Kalimantan Provincial Government.
