Indonesia has two government bodies mandated to deliver Forest and Landscape Restoration (FLR) in about 24.6 million hectares of forest and peat ecosystems.
Our analysis suggested that the 100,000 Ha restoration target in conservation areas largely overlooked degraded lands in eastern Indonesian Islands. The lack of budget allocation keeps restoration achievenment low and restoration partnerships with public, private and communities could fill the gap.
WRI Indonesia conducted research to understand community's motivation to participate in restoration. People were more inclined to participate in restoration when they are aware of the benefits. Ensuring that local communities received restoration activities information will increase their participation.
