Indonesia finalizes forest reference emission levels

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.
