UNDP aimed to consolidate information of forest land use so that it can be utilised by all stakeholders in a combined effort to implement REDD+ projects in Indonesia. Through the Government activities and support of NGOs, CSOs, academics and national and international institutions involved in community mapping and related field work, important information has been gathered regarding the communities and businesses directly involved in land use during the 80s, 90s, and recently. Implementation of REDD+ is reliant on information about Indonesia’s current landscape including demographic data on the communities who use the land and cadastral maps regarding the land’s administrative and/or traditional boundaries. This information will enable REDD+ to facilitate communities in designing sustainable methods whereby they can share the benefits of forest conservation and enhancement of carbon stocks through afforestation and reforestation. The purpose of this assignment was to “coordinate the collection and assessment of data relevant to the requirements for REDD+ implementation”. The objectives of this assignment were as follows:
LTS worked closely with Daemeter on this assignment.
