During the meeting, Indonesia and Norway agreed to continue to strengthen cooperation in the field of environment.

“We are committed to continuing to build on the momentum that has been generated. Collaboration today is very important and I believe we can achieve the common goal of creating a sustainable future for future generations,” Siti said in a MoJ press release as quoted on Sunday (29/6/2024).

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said cooperation between Indonesia and Norway continues to strengthen and has a significant global impact in addressing climate and environmental challenges. One of the key achievements is through effective sustainable forest management.

During the meeting, Indonesia and Norway discussed a key factor in sustainable forest management, namely the Forest Monitoring System. The system became an important instrument for decision makers, combating climate change, and improving people's livelihoods.

The Forest Monitoring System includes the provision of real-time early warning systems that assist in the detection of threats to forests, including deforestation, forest degradation, forest fires, and others. In addition, further measures will be carried out on the basis of the various knowledge gained from Norway, in particular regarding peat.

The plan includes the development of peat governance model plots with natural succession or revegetation according to existing conditions, such as in Riau or South Sumatra. In addition, another model plot already planned in Central Kalimantan will be carried out with Japan.

Support from Norway is also being considered for the International Tropical Peatland Centre (ITPC) with research in Bogor, which was established by cooperation between Indonesia, the Republic of Congo and Peru in 2018.
