Making knowledge work for forests and people
Bridging the gaps between knowledge and practices on forested landscape governanceMore information
Land in Indonesia is divided into two main categories: state forest area and non-forest area (APL). A state forest zone consists of both protected and production areas, while APL land is mostly designated for agriculture and human settlement.
Forest and agricultural lands are affected by changes and hazards due to natural factors as well as anthropogenic ones. Climatic factors are common causes for such changes and disasters, oftentimes combined with other factors such as market drivers or policy factors, creating more intense impacts.
Law No. 32/2009 stipulates that the Government and Regional Governments are required to make a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) or KLHS to ensure that the principle of sustainable development has become the basis and is integrated in the development of an area in the form of policies, planning and programs (Kebijakan, Rencana dan Program/KRP). Damage to natural resources and the environment will be more effectively prevented if the KRP formulation have considered environmental problems and threats from the beginning.
Support the achievement of a productive and sustainable landscape through governance programs that include strategies to improve food security, responsible use of forest and land, and mitigation and adaption to climate change
