General Project Description and Technical Data


This project will implement reduced-impact logging techniques (RIL) to decrease net greenhouse gas emissions associated with logging practices in East Kalimantan, on the island of Borneo. The project involves the development of guidelines and procedures for implementation of RIL techniques, on-site training in directional felling, and implementation of RIL techniques.

RIL will be introduced on two sites of concession land: Site 1 is 300 ha of forest land within the 223,500 ha Kiani Lestari concession, and Site 2 is 300 ha of forest land within the 300,000 ha Bulungan Forest Reserve of the Inhutani II concession. The forests are lowland dipterocarp forests, which have not been previously harvested, and are not densely populated. On-site training will be conducted in RIL techniques, followed by implementation of these techniques. RIL can reduce logging damage by as much as 50% through pre-cutting vines, directional felling, and planned extraction of timber on properly constructed and utilized skid trails. RIL techniques have been successfully implemented in neighboring Malaysia.

6. Cost

(a) Explanation of methodology for calculating cost data

Methodology for Calculating Cost Data


The estimated cost of implementing RIL in Kalimantan, Indonesia was developed based on the assumption that the costs and carbon-saving benefits in East Kalimantan are similar to that of Sabah, Malaysia. Research was conducted to support pilot projects in southeastern Sabah, Malaysia in 1992, in which a power company provided funds to a timber concessionaire to implement guidelines aimed at reducing logging damage. Based on this research, Pinard and Putz (in Retaining Forest Biomass by Reducing Logging Damage in Biotropica 28(3):278-295) estimated that it would cost U.S. $300 per ha to implement RIL guidelines in dipterocarp forests in Sabah.

The cost of applying RIL techniques to 600 ha (at approximately $300 per ha) in the Kiani Lestari and Inhutani II concessions is estimated to be $180,000.

The cost per tonne of carbon is estimated to be $5. This estimate is based on the project development and implementation costs divided by the GHG benefits. The project development costs are considered confidential by the project developer.

(b) Cost data-Project development

This information is considered confidential by the developer and therefore is not available.

(c) Cost data-Project implementation

Annual implementation cost information is not yet available.

7. Monitoring and verification of AIJ project activities and results

Item

Party(ies) that will be monitoring project activities

CIFOR scientists, KL and Inhutani II foresters, other Indonesian researchers and technicians

Party(ies) that will be externally verifying project results

Environmental Audit Committee (EAC) participants (see below)

Date when the monitoring plan became (or will become) operational (month/year)

3 months after project implementation begins

Types of data that will be collected

Biomass density, biomass growth rate, timber extraction volumes, residual damage, and soil carbon content

Description of Monitoring and Verification Activities and Schedule for Implementation


CIFOR scientists, KL and Inhutani II foresters, other Indonesian researchers and technicians will carry out field measurements necessary to monitor actual CO2 emission reduction and enhanced sequestration from RIL. All data produced will continue to be peer reviewed and published in appropriate academic journals. Monitoring will be conducted during the period in which all 600 ha of the project area have been harvested, and then will continue at lower intensity over the project lifetime. Future updates of CO2 projections will continue to be based on field measurements of established plots.

Project proponents are jointly responsible for ensuring that RIL areas are protected over the life of the project. Contractual terms will be established to monitor over the long term.

Researchers plan to monitor the hydrological effects of RIL in comparison to conventional logging in the study area. Studies of the biodiversity consequences of RIL are also planned.

External verification of project results and compliance with RIL guidelines will be carried out by an Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), which will meet at the project site on a quarterly basis for the length of the project (40 years). The EAC will be comprised of individuals external to, but selected by the hosts and principal investors in the project. The host and principal investors each chose one member of the EAC and then select a third forest harvesting expert by mutual agreement. This group will then choose additional members with scientific credibility to strengthen the legitimacy of the project.

C. Compatibility with, and supportiveness of, national economic development and socioeconomic and environmental priorities and strategies

Compatibility with Economic Development and Socioeconomic and Environmental Priorities


The forestry industry in Indonesia controls over 320 million ha of production forest. The anticipated standardization of certification guidelines after 2000 could have a significant impact on the Indonesian economy. This project will build local capacity to understand and implement sustainable logging systems in preparing for post 2000 certification standards. This project will also allow companies to begin
