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.
