Launch of the Indonesian National Carbon Accounting System (INCAS)

May 26, 2016

The implementation of Indonesia’s National Carbon Accounting System (INCAS) was a success for the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry, as FTA scientists were involved in the preparatory work. INCAS was launched at the Global Landscapes Forum 2015 in Paris, France, alongside COP21. Indonesia has set itself an ambitious target: lowering its greenhouse gas emissions by 41% by 2020. Now it has the powerful tool needed to keep track of its progress. High-level representatives from Indonesia and Australia launched a new system for tracking efforts to protect and restore forests and peatlands on the archipelago.
