Following the descriptions of deforestation and forest degradation in Indonesia and their underlying causes in Chapter 1, Chapter 2 presents more in-depth discussions on aspects of forest management and arrangements relating to REDD+, such as land tenure and carbon issues.
As a country with large expanses of tropical forest cover, Indonesia plays an active role in forestry-related international forums as well as bilateral and multilateral agreements. They include:
United Nations Forum on Forests (UNFF; see Rusli and Justianto 2007)
Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD)
Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)
