Indonesia’s Preparations for UNFCCC COP 15


The UK Foreign Office assisted Indonesia to analyse the current context and prepare proposals for submission to COP 15 in Copenhagen. This required assessing land use change, avoided deforestation, spatial planning and evaluation of the budgetary implications of such changes (particularly in the province of Papua). This project involved extensive field work with local community in Papua, documenting and assessing land use change, followed by analysis with National officials in Jakarta to assess potential policy responses, their likely effectiveness and their costs of implementation.
