Denmark continues its financial support to Indonesian forests


An initiative called “Promoting Sustainable Community-Based Natural Resource Management and Institutional Development Project” launched by Indonesia’s Ministry of Environment and Forestry has received 40 million Danish kroner from the Danish International Development Agency, along with USD 17.5 million from the World Bank’s Forest Investment Program. The money will be used to preserve 10 different nature reservations in Indonesia.

This grant complements our earlier support for the Ecosystem Restoration Concessions model, where forest-based livelihoods and management of forests with the involvement of local communities are also essential,” said Danish ambassador in Indonesia, Casper Klynge.

It is not that long ago that the Danish government granted 12 million Danish kroner to preserve the Jambi forest, also in Indonesia.
