Restoration Target vs. Degraded Land in National Parks by Region
Restoration activities in Indonesia remain concentrated in the western part of the country, including in Sumatera, Java, Bali and Kalimantan. This trend follows the distribution of restoration target laid out in the MoEF’s strategic plan, whereby western Indonesian regions take up 85% of the total target. However, this distribution might not necessarily reflect the needs for restoration.
Based on MoEF’s land degradation classifications (critical and very critical) and 2013 spatial data on land degradation, the extent of degraded land in all national parks in Indonesia nearly reached a million hectare. That said, even if MoEF’s 2015-2019 restoration target is achieved, it will only contribute to recover 10% of the total degraded land in all national parks.
