All German development cooperation agencies contribute to FORCLIME, providing technical (GIZ) and financial (KfW) cooperation supplemented by services from CIM.
In a joint effort German Financial and Technical Cooperation will support the Indonesian partners in Programme implementation building on the broad expertise of GIZ and KfW in financing activities towards sustainable development.
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. To achieve this goal, the programme team will assist the Indonesian government to design and implement legal, policy and institutional reforms for the conservation and sustainable management of forests, at local, provincial and national level. Support to REDD+ demonstration activities is a key feature of the programme, providing decision-makers with experience of how REDD+ can be implemented "on the ground"
Advice on strategy development for REDD+ and forest development at national, provincial and district levels
Technical advice on a framework for the implementation of REDD+ demonstration activities at various levels, including participatory land use planning and forest zoning
Innovative design of mechanisms and regulations for district-based REDD+ initiatives
Facilitation of monitoring, reporting and verification
Support to forestry administration reform processes such as the establishment of forest management units and related monitoring and inspectorate systems
Support to nature conservation and benefit sharing within the Heart of Borneo (HoB) Initiative
Development of payment for environmental services schemes to support sustainable livelihoods in rural areas
Capacity building for sustainable forest management and nature conservation
The government of Germany commissioned KfW for financial and GIZ for technical support of FORCLIME. REDD demonstration activities financed by KfW are – together with other initiatives (i.e. AusAID; TNC; WWF) – among the first REDD "on the ground projects" in Indonesia (and worldwide). The REDD pilots are meant to demonstrate that local development, sustainable forest management, biodiversity conservation and climate protection go hand-in-hand.
GIZ works with the Ministry of Environment and Forestry on national policy and sector strategies, to gear these strategies towards the requirements of emission reductions. Effective stakeholder participation is a critical success factor in all planning and strategy development processes.
