The Danish Embassy visited Bogor Agricultural University for a seminar on climate change, deforestation and impacts on local people on 10 March.
The seminar marked the beginning of an ambitious international collaborative research project, which will look at how policies and regulations on reduced emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) impact on local people’s livelihood, and how it is possible to further empower local communities.
The project is unique as it is a cooperation between Bogor Agricultural University, two Danish and two Vietnamese Universities. In addition, the research programme falls well in line with the Indonesian-Danish cooperation to support the climate change agenda in Indonesia, including through support to the newly established REDD+ Agency.
