    Indonesia is collaborating with the three UN-REDD Programme agencies - FAO, UNDP and UNEP- on the development of an action plan that links its REDD+ efforts with its overarching goal of transitioning to a Green Economy.

    Indonesia?s second medium term development plan (2010 - 2014) contains specific policies and goals on mainstreaming sustainable development and natural resource and environmental management.
