Forestry and Environment
Indonesia is the second mega-biodiversity country in the world after Brazil. Indonesia also has no less than 90 types of ecosystems. Although only has 1.3% land area of the world, Indonesia has 25% of fish species in the world, 17% of bird species, 16% of reptiles and amphibians, 12% of mamals, and 10% of flower species.
Indonesia, which consists of about 17,500 islands, has the world’s largest tropical forest after Brazil with an area of about 114 million hectares and covers more than half the tropical forests which now belong to Asia.
However, certain traditional economic development pattern will always give a hard pressure on the environment and the support capacity for human life in both present and future. Green Economy which is now being pushed to be used is an effort to improve human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcity. Green Economy is the concept of low-emission development, efficient resource management and social equity upholding.
Penabulu believes that sustainable development is almost entirely lies on the right economic concept. It is clear that the development of low emission or green economy still requires strong support from civil society organizations in Indonesia. Employment and income growth should be driven by investments that reduce emissions and pollution, increase energy efficiency and resource utilization, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
The program encourages institutional strengthening of civil society organizations, cooperatives and groups of small and medium enterprises in management and technical capabilities of conservation, strengthening community in the management of natural resources, development tools and guidelines, facilitate policy dialogue at national and local level as well as the best documentation of best practices and the lesson learned.
