FY 08 was full of exciting achivements for CI Indonesia. At the end of 2007, the Indonesian government hosted a hugely successful gathering on climate change that brought together climate change experts, international governments, NGOs, businesses, communities, indigenous peoples and many other stakeholders , for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP 13).

The next biggest achievment in FY08 after the Bali conference was the Intergovermental Programme for Climate Change (IPCC) report released in 2008 that brought biodiversity issues right into the public eye.

Another important achievement for CI Indonesia in FY08 was the facilitation of the 2004 CBD commitment to double the size of the terrestrial protected area by 2010 and the marine area by 2012.This time in FY 08, we collaborated with the Indonesian Government to create additional parks and along with the Raja Ampat government, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), several local NGOs, and the Ministry of Forestry and the Ministry of Marine and Fisheries to declare several MPAs (Marine Protected Area) in Raja Ampat (900.000 ha), off the west coast of Papua. These MPAs support the highest known levels of marine life biodiversity in the world with over 600 coral reef species and 1,476 reef- fish species.
