On February 12, 2013, Governor Teras Narang launched the socialization of Central Kalimantan Strategy and Action Plan for REDD+
for stakeholders in the Indonesian province. The Strategy and action plan for REDD+ (known locally as Strada, strategy daerah or regional strategy) is an important milestone for the REDD+ pilot province under the agreement between Indonesia and Norway regarding cooperation in reducing GHG emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, which was signed in 2010. The strategy was put into effect by Governor Regulation number 10
, dated May 15, 2012. Non-technical issues delayed the dissemination of the regulation to stakeholders until February. The launch, led by Governor Narang, was followed by a series of public meetings at the district level designed to reach as many people as possible prior to the regulation’s implementation.
