The Director General of Forestry Planning and Environmental Management, Ruandha Agung Sugardiman, said that preserving forests in the achievement of Indonesia's FOLU Net Sink 2030 is part of Indonesia's contribution to climate change control to the world.
As the commitment of President Joko Widodo or Jokowi that has been conveyed to the world, Indonesia's FOLU Net Sink targets the absorption rate of greenhouse gas emissions from the forestry sector and other land uses by 2030 to be balanced or even higher than the emission level.
"The forestry sector accounts for the largest portion of the greenhouse gas emission reduction target with a contribution of around 60 percent in meeting the carbon neutral target or net-zero emission," said Ruandha in Pontianak City.
Indonesia's FOLU Net Sink 2030 consists of an Operational Plan as a follow-up to Presidential Regulation 98 of 2021 regarding the implementation of carbon economic value and Ministerial Decree 168 of 2022 concerning Indonesia's FOLU Net Sink 2030 for climate change control.
The Ministry of Environment and Forestry has also prepared a Strategic Plan and Work Plan as the basis for implementation at the regional and regional levels. The GHG emission absorption target to be achieved in 2030 is -140 million tons of CO2e.
To do this, Ruandha describes three main actions in the implementation of Indonesia's FOLU Net Sink 2030 Operational Plan. The three main actions are reducing emissions, maintaining sequestration, and increasing carbon sequestration.
Forests are an important key to the success of Indonesia's FOLU Net Sink 2030. Sustainable forest and land fire control can prevent deforestation and release emissions into the atmosphere.
