Using Indonesian forests: Institutional reform and massive public participation are crucial to mitigate climate change

Using Indonesian forests: Institutional reform and massive public participation are crucial to mitigate climate change

Indonesia is home to vast tropical forests, but with deforestation rates approaching 1.8 per cent annually, it is also among the world’s major emitters of greenhouse gases. Plans to use Indonesian forests to mitigate global climate change present opportunities to explore significant financial benefits to Indonesia, forested regions, and forest communities, while sorting out Indonesian forest governance. Doing so will require Indonesia to prepare itself with changes in forest institutions, regulations and massive public awareness to attract wide participation of the many stakeholders who play a role in Indonesia’s forests.
