JAKARTA: Environmental NGO World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Indonesia has urged that improvements be made to Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) infrastructure and management.

“The development of those components on the national level is necessary to accompany any environmental agreements on the international level,” WWF Indonesia director of climate change and energy Nyoman Iswarayoga said on Tuesday.

Nyoman added that Indonesian officials should participate in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Durban, South Africa, this month.

WWF Indonesia suggested that officials consider the safety mechanisms and financing of REDD+ and MRV (measurable, reportable and verifiable) programs in the country, with special attention paid to the negotiation process, at the meeting.

Additionally, WWF Indonesia also asked officials to consider the dissemination and mapping of climate change and the engagement of civil society and local communities, to access funds on environmental initiatives in the country.
