On 7 May 2014, the Agriculture Forestry and other Land Use (AFOLU) Working Group (WG) of the Low-emission Development Strategies (LEDS) Global Partnership (GP) held its second meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia, one day after the close of the Forests Asia Summit convened by the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR). Forty-five people, including representatives from government, the donor community, academia, the private sector, NGOs, and global research organizations, attended the meeting.
The meeting consisted of two parts (see agenda in Annex 1 of the attached report). In the morning session, participants reviewed and offered inputs on the WG’s purpose, strategy, and activity plan. They also suggested institutions and individuals who should be engaged to participate in the WG. The afternoon session was dedicated to thematic presentations and discussion on forest monitoring, low-emission land use planning, and capacity building for climate smart agroforestry. Discussions and recommendations from each session are elaborated in the report.
