Landscape and Jurisdictional Approaches in Indonesia: Policy Brief
This policy brief demonstrates the development of landscape and jurisdictional approaches (L/JA) in Indonesia and highlights how this emerging approach helps achieve sustainability targets and goals. L/JA are management frameworks that balance and harmonize different and sometimes conflicting land-use demands. The approaches employ a long-term and multi-stakeholder collaborative plan appropriate to each local area.
CDP has several recommendations for the policymakers and relevant stakeholders in Indonesia, namely:
- To set a common vision and sustainability goals of the landscape/jurisdiction through establishing a multi-stakeholder platform
- To have a strong environmental policy framework that facilitates the implementation of the long-term goals of the landscape/jurisdiction and transcends the jurisdictional administrative periods
- Governments need to lead the roadmap to achieve the common goals and look behind for the best practices of LA/JA
- The importance of robust data collection, reporting and monitoring of L/JA
