Climate Change and UN Support
The UN in Indonesia is committed to help reverse the threat of climate change, by strengthening measures for environmental sustainability and climate change mitigation and adaptation in targeted vulnerable provinces, sectors and communities. UN agencies are working closely with the Indonesian Government, and stand ready to support the implementation of climate change schemes through programmatic activities such as UN-REDD and institutional mechanisms such as the Indonesia Climate Change Trust Fund (ICCTF).
The UN and UNDP have been supporting the Indonesian-Norwegian REDD+ Initiative with activities in support of the establishment of the National REDD+ Agency, issuing the REDD+ National Strategy, and implementing/monitoring the 2-year moratorium of licenses on forest and peat lands.
As of September 2011, the UN system has entered into an agreement with the Government to support the National REDD+ programme through a one-door UN joint support mechanism (UNORCID) with the participation of FAO, UNDP, UNEP and other agencies.
