The Forest Investment Programme in Indonesia

The Forest Investment Programme in Indonesia is implemented by the World Bank and the Ministry of Forestry of Indonesia. The project aims to help Indonesia reduce institutional barriers to sustainable forest management and REDD+ implementation at the national and sub-national levels.

Specifically it aims at strengthening the institutional, financial, and technical capacity and support policy dialogue with regards to the development of Forest Management Units (FMU).

FMUs are a means of investing in participatory forest land-use planning and of engaging local communities and other stakeholders to improve livelihood and economic activities through sustainable forest management.

Sustainable forest management provides at the same time strong benefits for climate change mitigation. The here available case study provides an analysis of the climate change mitigation impacts of FMUs as policy tool in Indonesia.
