PT HKD plans to carry out restoration and forest protection, community development and biodiversity conservation activities as part of the project.

Based on this MOU, USAID SEGAR will recruit an accredited organization to conduct a Land Use and Land Cover Change (LULCC) assessment of PT HKD’s concession area and surrounding villages in Ketapang, West Kalimantan. The classification procedure will refer to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Good Practice Guidance for Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry (GPG-LULUCF) as well as other reliable reference methodologies/approaches.
