New database key to fighting deforestation

Indonesia is poised to for the first time submit data to the global benchmark known as the forest reference emissions level (FREL). FREL is calculated by a team of experts from BP REDD+, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), the Environment and Forestry Ministry, the Agriculture Ministry, the Geospatial Information Agency (BIG), the Bogor Agriculture Institute (IPB), the United Nations Office for REDD+ Coordination in Indonesia (UNORCID) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC).
