One Map Initiative at the Local Level/Inisiatif Satu Peta di Tingkat Tapak
One Map Initiative at the Local Level is a collaborative initiative to achieve a sustainable and equitable land use and planning in order to support the government to implement low-emission development.
One Map Initiative at the Local Level is a collaborative initiative to achieve a sustainable and equitable land use and planning in order to support the government to implement low carbon development.
WRI Indonesia aims to support the implementation of One Map Policy at the local jurisdiction through a collaborative effort called the One Map Initiative at the Local Level. The initiative is hoped to be able to accelerate efforts to solve land-related conflicts, improve people’s livelihoods through a more equitable land distribution as well as support the local government and private sectors to implement sustainability principles in their activities.

Indonesia is the sixth largest emitter in the world and in 2010, 62 percent of its total national emissions come from Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU), peat decomposition and peat fires. Burning and cutting forests to make way for plantations have largely contributed to these emissions.
Land and forest fires are largely influenced by weak land governance, which has driven various irresponsible parties to exploit natural resources without considering the environmental, legal, and social situation.
The weak governance is caused in part by the inaccurate, incomplete and outdated geospatial data and information, contributing to the overlapping licenses of concession holders as well as conflicts and uncertainties in Indonesia’s land use management, which ultimately presented difficulties for the country to reduce emissions and improve people’s welfare at the same time.
The ‘One Map Policy’, issued through the Presidential Regulation No. 9 year 2016 and initiated by the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs and the Geospatial Information Agency, opens up a new opportunity to finally address this issue. WRI Indonesia aims to support the implementation of One Map Policy at the local jurisdiction through a collaborative effort called the One Map Initiative at the Local Level.
This initiative aims to establish a sustainable and equitable land use and planning through the strengthening of the Local Geospatial Information Network (Jaringan Informasi Geospasial Daerah) in managing the accurate and trustworthy geospatial data and information as well as the establishment of a multi-stakeholder forum that involves key stakeholders such as the government, CSOs, private sectors, community groups and indigenous people to discuss and build an agreement regarding land boundaries and land use.
This initiative is based on multi-stakeholders’ collaboration led by the local government and supported by stakeholders as partners in operationalizing the One Map Policy to accelerate the sustainable development at the sub-national level.
