IOJI and ICEL Support the FOLU Net Sink 2030 Policy through Rapid Regulatory and Institutional Assessment
To achieve Indonesia’s climate targets and commitments as outlined in the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) and Long-Term Strategy on Low Carbon and Climate Resilience (LTS-LCCR) 2030, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (KLHK) is preparing the Forestry and Other Land Use Net Carbon Sink policy by 2030. IOJI, along with the Indonesian Center for Environmental Law (ICEL) and KLHK, is conducting a Rapid Regulatory and Institutional Assessment (RRIA) for the FOLU Net Sink 2030 to identify the potential strengthening of legal, policy, and institutional aspects of the FOLU Net Sink 2030.
