IDH and Sustainable Landscape
Indonesia is a strategic intervention country for IDH, with 9 commodity programs supporting improved environmental and social sustainability through public-private partnerships across the archipelago focusing efforts on avoided deforestation based on landscape approach. The central concept for driving change in these landscapes is production-protection-inclusion: using a combination of donor and commercial funding to support investments in improved production practices, in return for a delivery of conservation, protection and restoration targets beyond the concession boundary. The program in Indonesia is being implemented in the Provinces of South Sumatra, Jambi, West Kalimantan, and Aceh.
