CI is pioneering is an initiative in Indonesia, the Sustainable Landscapes Partnership (SLP), an important new vehicle for demonstrating the concepts that are being discussed this month at the World Climate Summit (WCS) held concurrently with the UNFCCC's COP17 in Durban, South Africa.
The SLP began as a partnership among CI, USAID, The Walton Family Foundation and the Government of Indonesia, with $20 million in funding over a five-year period. The initiative is an innovative public-private partnership focused on developing proof-of-concept REDD+ and low emissions development projects. Initial goals of the SLP are: conserve more than five million hectares of high-biodiversity habitat in Indonesia; prevent more than 100 million tons of CO2 emissions through conservation and sustainable management of tropical forest and peat landscapes; and support the creation of markets for sustainably sourced products and supply chain efforts.
