Setelah melewati penyusunan oleh tim ahli, akhirnya rancangan dokumen tingkat emisi feferensi Indonesia untuk deforestasi dan degradasi hutan (forest reference emission level/FREL) dalam kerangka REDD+ memasuki tahap final. Draf submisi FREL Indonesia ini disusun bersama-sama Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), BP-REDD+, Kementerian Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan, Kementerian Pertanian, Lembaga Penerbangan dan Antariksa Nasional (Lapan). Juga, Badan Informasi Geospasial (BIG), Institut Pertanian Bogor (IPB), United Nations Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia (UNORCID) dan The Nature Conservation (TNC).
Ministries and government institutions like BP REDD+, the Environment and Forestry Ministry, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), the Bogor-based Institute of Agriculture (IPB), the United Nations Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia (UNORCID), and the Nature Conservation (TNC) were involved in formulating the Forest Reference Emission Levels (FREL). Now the Managing Body for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (BP REDD+) is familiarizing all stakeholders with FREL as the final step before it is passed as a state document. The government is set to subject the state document for discussion at the 20th United Nations Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCC), which will be held in Lima, Peru, on December 8.
