Climate Movement,Digital Climate Action

Climate Change Becomes a Global Concern, Including for Indonesia. Through the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK), Indonesia is once again promoting the steps of the Forestry and Other Land Use (FOLU) Net Sink 2030 at the subnational level, particularly in the Special Region of Yogyakarta Province, on Monday (20/5). This activity is part of a series of efforts to support Indonesia’s Long Term Strategy for Low Carbon and Climate Resilience 2050. The Relung Indonesia Foundation, as one of the NGOs engaged in environmental and forestry issues, was also invited to this socialization event.

Objectives and Strategies of FOLU Net Sink 2030

The FOLU Net Sink 2030 program aims to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions with a target of achieving -140 million tons of CO2 by 2030. This program focuses on the forestry and land use sectors with four main strategies:

  1. Prevention of deforestation.

  2. Conservation and sustainable forest management.

  3. Protection and restoration of peatlands.

  4. Enhancement of carbon absorption.

The Expert Staff of the Minister of Environment and Forestry for International Industry and Trade, Novia Widyaningtyas, emphasized the importance of collaboration from all parties to address the increasingly urgent climate change issue. “Indonesia has committed to the international community to control climate change since the Paris Agreement, and through Indonesia’s FOLU Net Sink 2030 program, we aim to achieve a GHG emission level of -140 million tons of CO2e by 2030,” she stated in a written statement.

Special Attention to the Java Region

The FOLU Net Sink 2030 program is designed with consideration for the characteristics of each region. For the Java region, the program is tailored to the carrying capacity and water retention capacity as well as the extent of critical land. The Special Region of Yogyakarta, with its high population density and minimal forest cover, becomes a primary focus in climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts.

KLHK collaborates with various universities such as UGM, IPB, Brawijaya University, and ITB to develop a detailed and effective operational plan. There are seven Operational Plans (OP) in the Java Region and six OPs that can be implemented in Yogyakarta, including OP1 prevention of the deforestation rate on mineral land, OP4 Forest Plantation Development, OP7 Carbon Stock Enhancement with Rotation, OP8 Non-Rotation Carbon Stock Enhancement, OP11 Biodiversity Conservation Protection, and OP12 Mangrove Management.

International support for the implementation of Indonesia’s FOLU Net Sink 2030 continues to flow, especially related to funding. This shows the world’s seriousness in addressing climate change issues and Indonesia’s potential to contribute to global climate change control.

As one of the civil society organizations invited to this socialization, the Relung Indonesia Foundation has the opportunity to closely observe the challenges and opportunities in the region. Through this event, it is expected that the Relung Indonesia Foundation can gain a deeper understanding of the current issues and plan future contributions to climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts.

The FOLU Net Sink 2030 program represents a concrete step by Indonesia in efforts to control climate change. Through collaboration among various parties and international support, Indonesia strives to achieve the GHG emission reduction target of -140 million tons of CO2 by 2030. The presence of the Relung Indonesia Foundation at this event is an important part of the multi-party collaboration to achieve the shared goal of preserving the environment and forestry.
