Governors' Climate & Forests Task Force

The Division of Forest Planning is the spatial planning directorate within the Ministry of Forestry. It is responsible for the Forest Resource Inventory System (FRIS), which is integrated into the related National Carbon Accounting System (NCAS), which monitors all terrestrial carbon. Together these form the basis of the national Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system for REDD+ in Indonesia.
Earth Innovation Institute was born as the international program of the “Amazon Environmental Research Institute” (IPAM), an independent Brazilian research institute founded in 1995. Our emphases on scientific research, policy and market analysis, combined with our commitments to strong local partnerships, allow us to support people making positive change on the ground. These people include farmers, timber producers, traditional fishing communities, businesses, and governments committed to sustainable, low-emission rural development. We seize opportunities where we can have the biggest impact in securing long-term supplies of food and timber production, in maintaining and rebuilding ecosystem services, and in lowering greenhouse gas emissions. Our work now focuses on the tropical forest frontiers of Brazil, Indonesia, Colombia, Peru, and Mexico, as well as on improving and refining California’s climate policies.

The Governors’ Climate and Forests Task Force (GCF) is a unique subnational collaboration between 22 states and provinces from Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, Peru, Spain, and the United States. The GCF seeks to advance jurisdictional programs designed to promote low emissions rural development and reduced emissions from deforestation and land use (REDD+) and link these activities with emerging greenhouse gas (GHG) compliance regimes and other pay-for-performance opportunities. More than 20% of the world’s tropical forests are in GCF states and provinces, including more than 75% of Brazil’s and more than half of Indonesia’s. The GCF includes states and provinces that are leading the way in building comprehensive, jurisdiction-wide approaches to low emissions development and REDD+ as well as the only jurisdiction in the world (California) that is considering provisions that would recognize offsets from REDD+ as part of its GHG compliance system.

The Ministry of Forestry (MoF) is responsible for managing the national forest estate, which was reported in 2012 to be approximately 118 million hectares (55% of the land surface). MoF is responsible for overall forest management, which includes improving and managing public access to forest areas. MoF, with the support of the Ministry of Environment, has been leading initial steps in the REDD+ process, such as setting up the Indonesia Forest Climate Alliance. Furthermore, with financial and technical support from Australia, Germany, the UK and the World Bank, MoF is currently developing demonstration activities for testing and initiating a global REDD carbon market. Within MoF, the Directorate General of Forest Plan (DGPlan) is responsible for the Forest Resource Inventory System (FRIS), which is integrated into the National Carbon Accounting System (NCAS).
The Partnership for Governance Reform ('the-Partnership') is a multi-stakeholder organisation working with government agencies and civil society organisations (CSO's) to advance reform at both national and local levels. The Partnership build crucial links between all levels of government and civil society to sustainably promote good governance in Indonesia.
