Project Description

According to ADB website, the Project Preparation Technical Assistance (PPTA) for $500,000 will enable preparation of a $17 million grant project aimed at reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) in West Kalimantan, one of the top five provinces contributing to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Indonesia with a mean deforestation rate of 132,500 ha per year. The project will address drivers of forest loss, such as commercial and illegal logging, forest conversion to agriculture, mining and uncontrolled fires, by (i) implementing community-focused REDD+ pilots, (ii) strengthening forest management units (FMUs) in the province through enhancing capacity for spatial planning and livelihood support, and (iii) harmonizing provincial and national policies for forest carbon stock improvement.
