The project objective is to conserve forests as natural carbon stores and to establish carbon sinks through reforestation in the province of West Kalimantan. Working in collaboration with a forestry operation in the boundary zone of the national park, the project seeks to identify forest areas highly worthy of preservation and to designate these zones protected areas. Degraded forest areas between Betung Kerihun and Danau Sentarum National Parks that hitherto have been separated are to be rejoined through reforestation efforts at the community level. The project supports the capacities of governmental and non-governmental actors in their endeavours to develop and implement local REDD demonstration measures in Indonesia.
