FORCLIMEForests and Climate Change Programme
Technical Cooperation (TC Module)
The programme's overall objective is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the forest sector while improving the livelihoods of Indonesia's poor rural communities. In order to achieve this goal, the programme team will support the Indonesian Government in the design and implementation of various legal, policy-related and institutional reforms aimed at the conservation and sustainable management of forests at the local, provincial and national levels. The geographic focus of FORCLIME is Eastern Indonesia and the Provinces of Central Sulawesi, Papua and West Papua. Support for the local implementation of international forest policy mechanisms, including REDD+ under the Climate Change Convention and the Access and Benefit Sharing Mechanism (ABS) set out under the Convention on Biological Diversity is an essential feature of the programme, and is resulting in decision-makers with experience of how international concepts can be implemented on the ground.
All German development cooperation agencies contribute to FORCLIME, providing technical (GIZ) and financial (KfW) cooperation
As part of a joint effort, German Financial and Technical Cooperation is supporting our Indonesian partners in programme implementation building and in harnessing the broad expertise of GIZ and KfW in relation to financing activities that are being aimed squarely at sustainable development.
