Today’s food and land use systems are typically extractive, destructive and reinforce major inequalities. They generate over $12 trillion a year in hidden environmental, social and economic costs.
Meanwhile, over half the world’s GDP depends on nature2 and is therefore at risk because of the ongoing destruction of terrestrial and ocean ecosystems linked to the way we currently produce food and use land.
Assessing impacts on ecosystem services under various plausible oil palm expansion scenarios in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia
This study assesses the impacts of oil palm expansion on key ecosystem services and analyzes the trade-offs among ecosystem services under four plausible future land-use scenarios in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia: business as usual, moratorium, zero gross deforestation and sustainable intensification.
Indonesia Green Economy Model (I-GEM)
The purpose of this Report is to describe in detail the components and results of Indonesia’s Green Economy Model (I-GEM) and its pilot implementation in Central Kalimantan and Jakarta. Incorporating the three key indicators and Systems Dynamic modeling, I-GEM shows valuable insights for Indonesia’s policies (like the RPJMN, RAN-GRK, MP3EI, etc.) and ultimately supports the mainstreaming of a green economy by guiding its implementation.
Forest Ecosystem Valuation Study for Indonesia
The FEVS report shows how critical provisioning services such as timber can add a substantial amount to the Indonesian economy and hence problems such as degradation in forest areas can lead to significant decreases in sources of revenue.
I-GEM: Measuring Indonesia’s transition towards a green economy
I-GEM aims to evaluate trade-offs and test the sustainability dimensions of policy interventions to inform planning. The first such model, which is also tailored to incorporate an additional set of three ‘Green Economy’ outcome indicators, namely Green GDP, GDP of the Poor and Decent Green Jobs, has been developed for Central Kalimantan (KT-GEM).
