The main goal of this assessment is to meet the needs of decision-makers at
multiple scales in Indonesia, as well as the needs of international
conventions. Through decentralization, local governments are becoming more
empowered, however their capacity to identify existing and potential
environmental problems and their impacts is very low.
Key features of assessment
The three provinces chosen as focal points have extremely high levels of
biodiversity and endemic species. Papua contains a significant portion of the
planet’s remaining tropical forests, as well as pristine coral reefs. Sulawesi
is noted for its high level of endemic species. Kalimantan has the greatest
number of reptile and butterfly species throughout Indonesia as well as
cultural heritage sites.
The total budget will be $50,000 from the MA, as well as in-kind contributions
amounting to $45,000 from the State Ministry for Environment, the Indonesian
institute of Sciences, UNDP and USAID.
