Provincial Council on Climate Change: East Kalimantan, Indonesia

Provincial Council on Climate Change: East Kalimantan, Indonesia

Key messages

  • The Provincial Council on Climate Change multistakeholder forum (MSF) had a locally-rooted leadership that strengthened participants’ ownership of the process and thus their perception of its legitimacy.
  • MSFs working independent of government structures can connect more easily with different actors, as “sectoral egos” within government institutions can hamper communication and coordination. A local government decree issued for this MSF was key to challenging political dynamics in the region and to avoiding MSF disbandment.
  • Engaging both community and private sector stakeholders who have been absent from the MSF would likely increase its effectiveness in enhancing sustainable land use.
  • Although active participants in the MSF recognize its key achievements in multi sectorial coordination, the MSF’s annual monitoring activities do not yet contemplate reflections on its processes’ equity and effectiveness.
