General

The objective of the programme is to support Indonesia and the provinces of Papua and West Papua to improve spatial plan processes and implementation in order to prevent deforestation and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Technical assistance will be provided to improve the revision and implementation of Papua and West Papua provincial spatial plans; to improve transparency and build constituency in spatial planning at provincial level; and to foster national policy dialogue and engagement to support Papua’s commitment to protect its forest. Support will be focused largely on two provinces – Papua and West Papua – and relevant national ministries (particularly Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Agrarian and Spatial Planning), which offer the potential to realise significant reductions in emissions through improved land use planning and economic development strategies which recognise the value of forests to the provincial economies.
