Governors' Climate & Forests Fund (GCF Fund) is pleased to announce its first Request for Proposal (RFP) through a grant generously funded by the US Department of State. Under the request, Civil Society Organizations are invited to partner with GCF states or provinces to submit proposals to address collective needs to improve forest carbon assessments and capacity. Funding will be provided to proposals which: a) strengthen or improve GCF state and province forest carbon assessments and capacity with the objective making significant progress towards IPCC Tier 2 or 3 forest inventories, and b) strengthen or improve subnational REDD+ programs and MRV methodologies and capacity that support national REDD+ strategies. Under this round of funding, the GCF Fund expects to support projects in all GCF tropical forest countries: Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Indonesia and Nigeria. While projects will be funded at the provincial or state level, all proposals should align with and support national-level REDD+ strategies.

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.
