FORCLIME

 Forests and Climate Change Programme

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.

Embedded in an overall framework for Readiness, REDD demonstration activites shall provide alternative income opportunities supporting more carbon-sensitive land-use, sustainable community development and biodiversity conservation. Demonstration activities shall address different drivers of deforestation and degradation and will be implemented in cooperation with different stakeholders. Activities include community forestry (focussing on forest dependent communities supporting their land use rights and livelihoods) and support to less destructive forest management practices in (certified) forest concession areas like Reduced Impact Logging (RIL).

KfW’s Approach

The FC component will contribute to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD). Hereby, KfW aims at the implementation of strategies for forest conservation and sustainable forest management resulting in reduced GHG emissions from the forest sector and improved living conditions of the impoverished rural population. With its commitment in the FORCLIME Programme, KfW seeks to demonstrate the viability of a pro-poor REDD-mechanism in Kalimantan.

Therefore, KfW uses a district based approach in order to prepare selected pilot areas for national and international carbon markets. KfW finances measures to achieve readiness in three districts of Kalimantan (Kapuas Hulu, Malinau, Berau), realizes an investment programme for REDD demonstration activities and develops an innovative and fair incentive payment scheme. All KfW efforts are closely aligned with different project partners, such as government institutions, communities, NGOs, private sector and concession holders.

FC Module conducts several activities in order to achieve following output:

  • output 1: measures to achieve readiness financed
  • output 2: investment programme in REDD demonstration activities realised
  • output 3: innovative and fair incentive payments and compesation schemes developed and tested

Programme Phasing and Activities

The FORCLIME FC Program consist of following component:
  • Livelihood: improvement of livelihood and capacity building
  • Forest ecosystem management: forest ecosystem assesment, support to FSC certification, best practice of concession management, qualified data and information
  • Documentation and dissemination: documentation of lessons learned, documentation for FSC, CCB, VCS validation, and dissemination
  • Carbon management: carbon accounting, remote sensing, GIS, and terestrial inventory, benefit sharing financing/ carbon payment
  • Carbon management and land use planning: land use planning, carbon monitoring at site and district level, support community to conduct carbon monitoring

Investments in Demonstration Activities:

  • Financing REDD Demonstration activities "on the ground" in 3 districts of Kalimantan; addressing main drivers of deforestation/ degradation, focussing on different types of forest lands (e.g. production forests, protected forests, conservation forests);
  • Linking pilot schemes to emerging voluntary carbon markets.

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.

FORCLIME's Assistance

  • Advice on strategy development for forest development and REDD+ at the national, provincial and district levels;
  • Technical advice on a framework for the implementation of REDD+ at various levels, including a climate financing mechanism;
  • Support for forestry administration reform processes such as the establishment of forest management units and community forestry schemes;
  • Support for nature conservation and the Access Benefit Sharing Mechanism;
  • Development of environmental-service payment schemes in order to support sustainable livelihoods in rural areas;
  • Support for the marketing and sustainable use of Non-Timber Forest Products by local communities and policy measures aimed at a forest-based bioeconomy, including cooperation with local universities; and
  • Capacity building for sustainable forest management and nature conservation

Technical Cooperation (TC)

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.
