Dear Members and Friends,

Ahead of the climate-change talks in Paris, Indonesia committed itself to a bold reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, pledging to cut them by at least 29 percent from “business as usual” levels by 2030. Yet owing to deforestation and expansion of farmlands, Indonesia remains one of the world’s largest emitters of CO2. Many observers doubt its ability to meet its targets. 


Devastating fires remain an annual occurrence in peat wetlands in Sumatra and Kalimantan, blanketing much of the region in noxious smoke, as well as doing serious harm to the people who live there. The World Bank reckons fires in 2015 cost the economy $16 billion in that year alone. So in January this year President Joko Widodo set up a Peatland Restoration Agency intended to end the problem for good. But is it too little, too late? 


Please join the Jakarta Foreign Correspondents Club for a panel discussion on Indonesia’s progress managing its forests and peatlands so as to meet its environmental commitments, featuring:


1. Nazir Foead, Head of Peatland Restoration Agency

2. Aida Greenbury, Asia Pulp and Paper

3. Dharsono Hartono, Rimba Makmur Utama

4. Cifor (name to be confirmed)
