International Forest Carbon Initiative (IFCI)

The international community agreed in Bali that action must be taken now to address deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries and to establish the necessary systems and financial mechanisms to ensure long term emission reductions. The International Forest Carbon Initiative is Australia's contribution to this global effort.

The International Forest Carbon Initiative is a key part of Australia's international leadership on reducing emissions from deforestation. The Initiative will support international efforts to reduce deforestation through the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It aims to demonstrate that reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation can be part of an equitable and effective international agreement on climate change.

A central element of the Initiative is its focus on developing practical demonstration activities in our region, particularly in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. Australia has signed Forest Carbon Partnerships with both Indonesia and Papua New Guinea under the Initiative. 

 

Kalimantan Forests and Climate Partnership

Australia and Indonesia are currently working on a demonstration activity in the carbon rich peatland forests of Central Kalimantan – the Kalimantan Forests and Climate Partnership (KFCP). This Partnership is the first, large-scale demonstration activity of its kind in Indonesia. It trials an innovative, market-oriented approach to financing and implementing measures to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia. Australia has committed $30 million to establish the KFCP.

The KFCP is part of Australia’s International Forest Carbon Initiative (IFCI)
