CPI partners with government, business, and civil society—at both the national and regional levels—to support Indonesia as it reconciles its climate goals and development objectives. CPI works to implement the Production & Protection approach to realize sustainable and equitable land use in Indonesia. At the national level, CPI partners with the Ministry of Finance to understand, develop, and adjust fiscal policies and mechanisms that encourage the transition to a green economy and the optimal use of land and energy resources. CPI also closely collaborates with Ministry of Environment and Forestry and Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources. In efforts to accelerate green investment, particularly in the energy sector, CPI works with public and private financing institutions.
CPI’s Indonesia program is led by Dr. Suzanty Sitorus.
- CPI’s Production and Protection Approach to Landscape Management (PALM) aims to make a significant contribution to the development and realization of Central Kalimantan’s green growth strategy. In partnership with the University of Palangka Raya and the PILAR Foundation, CPI is supporting the province’s transition towards sustainable oil palm production while protecting vital natural landscapes.
- CPI, in partnership with The Nature Conservancy and GIZ, is working to support East Kalimantan on sustainable land use through Low Emissions Palm Oil Development. CPI’s work, particularly focused on the Berau District, aims to optimize agricultural productivity for sustainable land use and to develop a strong sub-national fiscal policy to support regional economic growth.
- Fiscal Policy for Sustainable and Equitable Land Resources Management aims to advance Indonesia’s fiscal policy frameworks at the national and local levels, while supporting sustainable and equitable land and resource governance. Through a series of analytical studies, policy workshops, and stakeholder meetings, CPI is demonstrating the linkages between fiscal policy and land and resource issues, and building the technical capacity of government and non-government actors to design and implement effective land use and fiscal policies.
- The Clean Energy initiative supports accelerating renewable energy investment and reducing Indonesia’s dependence on fossil-fuel based energy. The initiative includes policy work and advisory support to public and private entities, engaging national and international groups sharing the same objectives.

Indonesia’s Village Fund: An Important Lever for Better Land Use and Economic Growth at the Local Level
April 3, 2018
In keeping with its goals for sustainable economic growth and an inclusive and equitable economy, Indonesia is committed to avoiding deforestation. As the drivers of deforestation often originate from activities outside of forest borders, it is not enough to solve deforestation by conducting segregated actions targeted to specific forest areas. Indonesia must also work to strengthen the rural economy and improve regional collaboration by working across various administrative jurisdictions that encompass forest governance. To ensure the success of this jurisdictional approach, improved economic power and village governance are key.
