Indonesia REDD+ RBP for results period 2014-2016

Project Overview

Indonesia, with support from UNDP, is the first country in Asia-Pacific to gain funding by the Green Climate Fund (GCF) under its REDD+ Results-Based Payment (RBP) pilot program. The Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) welcomed the approval of this funding, totaling USD 103 million, as payment for emission reductions achieved from deforestation under its REDD+ program for the period 2014 to 2016.
 
The Government of Indonesia submitted the REDD+ RBP Funding Proposal, which it had designed with support from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), to address the underlying causes of deforestation and enhance forest protection in Indonesia, home to the third largest rainforest area in the world.
The funds will be invested in the implementation of the National REDD+ Strategy (STRANAS), which is aligned with Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Climate Agreement. The RBP project will focus on strengthening REDD+ coordination and implementation as well as supporting decentralized sustainable forest governance.

Expected Outcomes

The Government of Indonesia will use the REDD+ results-based payments (RBPs) to: 
 
1. Continue updating, building and strengthening its REDD+ architecture, as well as further strengthen government capacity to coordinate and implement REDD+ nationally. 
 
2. Further extend and enhance Social Forestry and Forest Management Units (FMU) operationalization, as two ambitious and innovative priority programmes which contribute strongly to the double objectives of sustainable forest management and rehabilitation, as well as community empowerment and poverty alleviation.  
 
Concurrently, both social forestry and FMU are also part of the focus areas through which Indonesia seeks to improve forest governance, thereby contributing to addressing the rate of deforestation and forest degradation and meeting REDD+ objectives.

Indonesia REDD+ National Strategy (STRANAS REDD+ or Strategi Nasional REDD+ in Indonesian) was developed in 2012 with implementation period up to 31st December 20201. The STRANAS is designed to serve as guidance for REDD+ implementation The STRANAS cover strategy for the implementation of all REDD+ activities, i.e.: deforestation, forest degradation, forest conservation, sustainable forest management and enhancement of forest carbon stock. It also includes guidance for investment in forest utilization including environmental services. There are three main programs in the STRANAS, namely.: (1) avoidance of deforestation, (2) avoidance of forest and peat land degradation, as well as conservation and sink enhancement through activities namely (a) forest conservation, (b) sustainable forest management, (c) restoration and rehabilitation of degraded area, and (d) creation of enabling condition and co-benefit for implementation of mitigation activity. The first three activities can be considered as core activities leading to direct emission reduction, while the fourth activity is considered as supporting activity. Other examples of supporting activities are program targeting improvement of community’s welfare, program/activity on biodiversity conservation, and improvement in provision of environmental services.

Key Results and Outputs

Output 1: Strengthening REDD+ coordination and implementation and overall REDD+ architecture 
 
This output aims to: 
Support the continuous updating and further development of the overall REDD+ architecture (Forest Reference Level, National Forest Monitoring System and MRV capacity, Safeguards Information System, etc); 
 
Strengthen the government capacity for REDD+ coordination and implementation at national and subnational levels 
 
This output will use a conventional up-front financing modality. 
 
Output 2: Support to decentralized sustainable forest governance 
 
This output aims to support the government of Indonesia in advancing its objectives of decentralized sustainable management of forests through the operationalization of Forest Management Units (FMUs), as well as in its complementary objective of devolving access to and management of forest land and resources to communities in adequate areas. This project will therefore support the implementation and further refinement of the Social Forestry and FMU programmes respectively, looking at opportunities for complementarity and synergies between them whenever possible. 
 
This project will support (i) activities related to operationalization of FMUs and licensing of social forestry respectively, and (ii) actual investments supporting sustainable forest management and sustainable livelihoods, both within and outside FMUs. This Output will directly benefit from acceleration activities supported through Activity 1.2, including the guidance developed and enhanced regulatory framework at national and subnational level, as well as from the trained facilitators that will be deployed to support FMUs. 
 
This output will use a performance-based payments modality.
