Trees and forests: An investment in climate resilience

06 – 18 November 2022, Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt

The Role of Standard to Accelerate Indonesia's FOLU Net Sink 2030 as part of Indonesia's NDC

This session will contribute to discussions on the urgent need to tackle climate change and reach 1.5 Degrees Celsius effectively and timely through a collective response under Indonesia’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) which also aligns with the enhanced transparency actions of the Paris Agreements as follows:

  • Sharing information, good practices, experiences and lessons learned, including as appropriate as these relate to science, planning, policies, and implementation of Indonesia’s FoLU net Sink 2030
  • Strengthening institutional arrangements to support the synthesis of relevant information and knowledge and the provision of technical support and guidance to Parties
  • Assisting developing country Parties in identifying effective actions, efforts, and challenges and gaps in a manner consistent with encouraging good practices
  • Improving the effectiveness and durability of actions.

Considering the diversity of ecosystems and drivers of emissions, various ways to mitigate climate change, and socio-cultural differences, Indonesia needs standardized systems to ensure the achievement of its NDCs. 

The NDC targets will be reached when stakeholders collectively act at multiple levels across landscapes, ecosystems, and geographical locations. Therefore, it is crucial to develop a capacity-strengthening program and knowledge-sharing platform for communities and stakeholders to plan the mitigation actions, measure the outcomes, and learn and adjust the implementations to reach maximum impacts.
