CIFOR and partners have been implementing a Global Comparative Study on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (GCS-REDD+) since 2009. Through this project, CIFOR is fostering the co-creation of knowledge and learning exchange at all levels, ensuring policymakers and practitioners have access to – and use – the information, analyses, tools needed to design and implement effective, efficient, and equitable REDD+ policies and actions. Science and Policy Dialogue series are one of the key components introduced in GCS-REDD+ Phase 4 aiming to tailor research to country-level needs, policies, and targets pertaining to forest-based climate mitigation. As we learned from the first Science and Policy Dialogue, From COP26 to G20: How research can support aligning forest, finance, and development planning in Indonesia, there is a great opportunity for research to support national commitment to transform FOLU sectors into a carbon net-sink by 2030.
This side event of the Science and Policy Dialogue series is established as a platform to share the knowledge and lessons learned from CIFOR and partner’s research on the role of subnational actors, particularly women and youth, to help achieve the government’s climate mitigation target in an effective, efficient, and equitable manner. We aim to invite students and general public, particularly from- and/or have interest in conducting research in East Kalimantan, to attend to this knowledge-sharing event.
