The Ministry Affairs


coordinating Economic

The ministry has been instructed by the president through Presidential Instruction 5/2008, which instructs the Ministries of Forestry and Environment to issue REDD regulations and gives a clear mandate to coordinate REDD implementation BAPPENAS is responsible for overall development coordination which includes the management of financial/technical assistance from Development Partners.



It is the coordination the implementation of bilateral and multilateral aid projects which includes the REDD pilots financed by AusAID and BMZ (The German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development) BAPPENAS is working towards the establishment of a climate change multi donor trust fund. BAPPENAS has initiated project ideas, presented in the national development response to climate change or yellow book, to initiate the

development of equitable and efficient REDD value chain and payment mechanisms. It is responsible the development and management of a national REDD fund. Leads international coordination and overall coordination with line ministries 5. Ministry of Finance It is responsible for the design and implementation of payment mechanisms insofar it concerns resources. This includes a possible 30% (pending upon interpretation of the tax legalization) levy on REDD generated revenues. Payment mechanism and a possible national fund. Involvement in setting of a Badan Layanan Umum (General Public Services) and in the oversight of a BLU, It is responsible for spatial planning and oversees the implementation of law 26/2007 It is managing the state owned estate crop companies and is responsible for the development of palm oil production in Indonesia. MoA is generally seen as one of the most significant drivers of deforestation. 8. Ministry of Trade and Commerce. It is responsible for trade related issues and its policies impacts on prices and trade volumes of palm oil, pulp and paper, plywood and other forest related products. It is responsible to update and manage spatial and mapping data for the whole country Special autonomy law has let these province to control its forest management

1. IFCA (the Indonesian Forest and Carbon Alliance) It has conducted a series of studies on different aspects of REDD organized through the set up of working groups. By the time of COP 13 in December 2007 each of the working groups had developed their technical papers to a comprehensive nd 2 draft stage The council comprises of six working groups of government officials to deal with issues of adaptation, mitigation, technology transfer, finance, forestry and post-Kyoto aims. The exact roles and responsibilities of the forestry working group and possibly links to the IFCA group are yet to be defined; potentially it could play an important role in establishing a favourable policy and regulatory framework for REDD in Indonesia It is a newly established body in the Ministry of Forestry which has been given authority to advise the Minister on policy, strategic plan, implementation of programs and activities, and facilitate any initiatives from stakeholders related to climate change adaptation, mitigation and transfer of technololgy, including clean development mechanism and reduced emission from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD). Managed by FORDA, Ministry of Forestry.

After the World Bank commenced to reduce its support to IFCA, coordination faded and oversight was lost


The National Climate Change Council (NCCCDNPI) – PP No. 46/2008

It is a newly established body which has been given significant authority to advise and oversee implementation of both climate change adaptation and mitigation policies. This national counsel is being established and will be the future UNFCCC focal point. The final arrangements with regards to the role of the Ministry of Environment remain unclear.

This project tentatively aims to support “The implementation of strategies for forest conservation and sustainable forest management results in reduced GHG emissions from the forest sector and improved living conditions of the impoverished rural population”. The project will be working in 2 to 4 districts in Kalimantan, mostly located in what is called the “Heart of Borneo” which encompasses the provinces of East and West Kalimantan The project focuses on a district implementation model. This project aims to support “The Securing natural carbon sinks and habitats of special significance in the Hearth of Borneo through community empowerment, forest restoration and collaboration with the private sector”. The project will be working in the Leboyan forest corridor and the Bukit Baka Raya National park (West Kalimantan). The project is intended to secure forest cover within the Heart of Borneo landscape to maintain carbon stocks, secure important wildlife habitats and to reduce vulnerability to climate change.  The partnership encompasses the following key areas: o Policy development and capacity building to support participation in relevant international negotiations and future carbon markets; o Technical support for Indonesia to develop its national forest carbon accounting and monitoring system; and o Development of largescale project based demonstration activities, and the provision of related enabling assistance, to trial approaches to REDD. This includes the Kalimantan forest and carbon partnership and a second demonstration project, of which at the time of writing no

specifics were known. the World Bank is moving from technical assistance towards financing. The bank played a key role in coordinating IFCA of which outcomes are perceived as reasonable successful despite the fact that currently the process is somewhat stagnating. Nevertheless the Bank anticipates that Indonesia will participate in the forest and carbon partnership in which case it is eligible for readiness support. The World Bank foresees that in the Indonesian case, the Forest Investment Fund would be a key vehicle in supporting REDD. Eligible activities could include: o Shifting agriculture to non-forest lands, o Restoration of degraded forests o Protection of forests against fires, etc. o Build capacity for better forest management The forestry investment could be supportive to finance industry restructuring programs such as re-allocating planned palm oil development from peat land soils to mineral soils, closure of saw mills/plywood mills, developing alternative employment for households depending on timber processing facilities etc. The GoJ has activities through a program loan, implemented together with the French Government and technical assistance activities. o A Program Loan of 500 million USD to which Japan contributed 300 million and France 200 million. The loan is managed by JBIC. The program loan is a budget support mechanism in which disbursements are made dependent upon progress in climate change policy

development and implementation. REDD implementation regulations are included as a performance indicator. o JICA is working on pilots in Sumatra on a small scale in South Sumatra and Jambi, mostly in Peat Swamp areas (Berbak National Park). JICA provides support to the development of a National Carbon Accounting System through provision of satellite imagery and through developing links with its pilot projects  Dutch Government assistance is focussing mostly towards peat/low land management. Key activities include a second phase of Dutch funded but NGO implemented program Central Kalimantan Peatland Project (CKPP). CKPP could be aligned with the AusAID funded KFCP program. Furthermore, the Dutch Government might fund a low land development initiative with a significant spatial planning component. This initiative covers around 750,000 ha of forests. Development of the first forest protection project - to be approved by leading international standards for reducing emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD) – It is expected to prevent 100 million MT of CO2 from being emitted over the next 30 years. The project is designed to deliver significant amounts of carbon credits for future sale on the voluntary carbon markets. The project achieved certification against the Climate, Community & Biodiversity (CCB) Standards in February 2008. As the first of its kind, the project is likely to have a significant impact on the design and implementation of REDD projects in the future in Indonesia The project‟s activities are predicted to reduce deforestation of Aceh Province‟s endangered Ulu Masen forest by a 85%, thereby bringing about real reductions in greenhouse gas

emissions. The 3.3 million carbon credits predicted to be generated annually will help to finance the conservation of the forest‟s rich biodiversity and development projects for local communities, who are some of Indonesia‟s poorest. The parties are assessing three project areas ranging in size from 300,000 hectares to one million hectares.

RMU is working on a concession for which it is proposing an environmental service permit. The area is located in Katingan district. GER is working on a voluntary market initiative in the Malinau district (overlaps with GTZ project area). The CER project consists of 325,000 ha of forest with a possible extension to over 2 million. A MOU has been signed between the district government and GER. GER has submitted a request for a permit to the department of Forestry. TNC is working to establish a district based REDD program in Berau in East Kalimantan. TNC builds on an existing integrated development and conservation program. Indonesia is the major focus for this initiative with three projects („the projects‟) currently in development. These projects aim to achieve local and national support for the preservation and sustainable management of forest landscapes that range from 57,000 hectares to 500,000 hectares JP Morgan is working with CIMTROP on a reduced peat land emission approach which is meant to be proposed for inclusion in CDM (Clean Development Mechanism).
