"Green development" in Indonesia: harmonizing land-based investment and GHG emissions in East Kalimantan

This presentation given by K. Obidzinski, H. Komarudin, A. Dermawan and A. Andrianto focuses on the the gap between development targets and ENV sustainability and the way to harmonize DEV and ENV agendas. It also aims to stimulate discussion about the relationship between DEV and Climate Change initiatives in the province. Kalimantan is one of Indonesia's 6 economic centers. The main economic activities are the extraction of energy and mineral resources, timer and the cultivation of oil palms. But MP3EI (Masterplan Percepatan dan Perluasan Pembangunan Ekonomi Indonesia)-goals, clash with environmental sustainability. Concerns exist especially relating to concessions for oil palm plantations, timber plantations and coal mining, since they would affect several M Ha of forest land. The circumstances call for a "green economy" approach, whose challenges are still to be overcome.
