Yayasan Madani Berkelanjutan (Madani) is a non-profit organization that aims to strengthen various local and national initiatives in saving Indonesian forests by bridging relations amongst stakeholders (government, private, civil society) in order to achieve innovative joint solutions of the land and forest governance.

Indonesia has committed to reducing carbon emissions with the target 29%-41% of the BAU level in 2030, which is reflected in the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). This target is a national achievement that certainly requires all parties' participation, including policymakers and the community at the sub-national level. In addition, low-carbon development is an important direction for green development policies and strategy which has been outlined in the 2020-2024 RPJMN. The concept of low-carbon development and the NDC target needs to be integrated into every aspect of development planning, both at the Central and Regional Governments. There is a need for synchronization of methodologies, institutions, and development planning between national and sub-national that supports the achievement of carbon emission reduction targets and the implementation of green development. This is an opportunity to facilitate and mobilize government support, particularly local governments, NGOs, and youth groups to implement and/or encourage the increase in ambitions for climate targets and actions in Indonesia.
