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.
