Together with its national host partner, the Indonesian Business Council for Sustainable Development (IBCSD), The Forests Dialogue (TFD) convened over 40 Indonesian practitioners and community members and approximately 30 international issue leaders for a four-day dialogue in Riau, Sumatra during April 29 – May 2, 2015.
Indonesia has among the highest rates of deforestation in the world, as well as huge export markets for commodities associated with deforestation, including palm oil and wood products. At the same time, some of the largest agribusinesses in Indonesia are leaders in the deforestation-free space, and the government has taken important steps to improve forest governance. Meanwhile, a new tool for implementing deforestation-free commitments—the high carbon stock (HCS) approach—is being refined and tested in Indonesian landscapes.
