Together with its partners, SNV aims to contribute to Indonesia's low-emission development under its overall climate change strategy: the project will strengthen the capacity of the Aceh and central government in the provice to create economic growth in the land use, land-use change and forestry sector by supporting low-carbon development economic growth in Aceh province that is compatible with sustainable natural resources management and ecosystem concerns.
A way to achieve this will be through supporting the national REDD+ strategy to design and streamline REDD+ strategies in the existing development planning frameworks as well as by implementing sustainable- participatory- transparent- low-carbon and economically sound land-use decisions. The projects' objectives are to:
- Harmonise economic growth with climate change mitigation: support the creation of a Green Economy
- Build consensus on climate change and forest management concepts:
- Developing capacities at the local level in the province to implement activities in line with low-carbon development
