CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Indonesia

CIFOR-ICRAF has a long history of research and engagement in Indonesia, having signed a MoU with the Indonesian Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MOEF) in 1993. With one of our headquarters based in Bogor, West Java, we work closely with MOEF, as well as with the Ministry for National Development Planning, provincial and local governments, communities, NGOs, universities and the private sector to help Indonesia meet its commitments to national and international agreements such as Agenda 2030, the Paris Agreement, Nationally Determined Contributions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and the Bonn Challenge.

Our work focuses on issues critical to sustainable national development, such as landscape restoration, climate change, REDD+, improved livelihoods through agroforestry, wetlands, sustainable and inclusive value chains, oil palm, land-use planning for low-emission development, biodiversity conservation, fire and haze, peatland restoration, bioenergy on degraded land, tenure and gender equality.
