Conserving Biodiversities and Providing Benefits for People

A session by Ministry of Environment and Forestry

Date : Tuesday, 7 November 2017
Time : 13.00 – 14.30
Venue : Indonesia Pavilion at COP 23, Bonn Zone, Bonn, Germany


The adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals has paved a way toward more inclusive development of our interconnected societies in the world. One of core challenges for the next step is the elaboration of actual mechanisms to simultaneously pursue and materialize these goals. The Paris Agreement is one of such tools in which REDD+ is stipulated as a key emission reduction mechanism.

In Indonesia, there has been an attempt on the development of a method for incentivizing non-carbon benefits associated with REDD+. While it is still at the early stage of the development, this attempt has been exploring new opportunities of linking multiple stakeholders of communities, companies, government and NGOs together. The core innovation is the development of a method for integrating and quantifying ecosystems and environmental benefits through an accountable framework. The integration is based both on scientific and policy discourses.

This event aims to share tentative findings of such an on-going attempt and solicit feedback from professionals who are interested in or even conducting such experimentations in the world.

The presentation will elaborate the role of national park and biodiversity conservation of Indonesia in mitigating climate change through emission reduction scheme.

2. Operationalizing “the non-carbon benefits” of REDD+ in Indonesia (Dr. Zahrul Muttaqin)

3. Institutionalizing Climate Actions into National Park Management (Dr. Subarudi)

The presentation will focus on what institutional arrangements need to be designed to mainstream climate actions in national parks and to support the provision of sustainable funding for national park management.
