Kalimantan

In Kalimantan, SEKALA has worked for the REDD+ Task Force and REDD+ Regional Committee of Central and East Kalimantan Provinces to provide baseline data and a base map assessment of Central and East Kalimantan. It is also helping to institutionalize an integrated cadastral mapping and survey system for the provincial government of Central Kalimantan

SEKALA has also worked with the World Resources Institute (WRI) to develop a method for identifying degraded land and piloting land swaps in the Kapuas Hulu district of West Kalimantan. This work

is known as the Palm Oil Timber and Carbon Offset (POTICO) project and it involves Free Prior Inform Consent (FPIC), land use negotiation and community mapping processes.

Previously SEKALA worked with The Nature Conservancy (TNC) to assist the local government to undertake spatial analysis required for setting up REDD+ in Berau, East Kalimantan. During this time, SEKALA was able to establish good networks in East Kalimantan and worked on key spatial data for East Kalimantan, such as topographic data, spatial plans, forest and peat maps and other land use data. This data was analysed to produce maps that showed data inconsistencies and allowed stakeholders to determine which areas should be prioritized for REDD+ initiatives.

SEKALA has also worked with Fauna and Flora International in West Kalimantan to work on a landscape scale orangutan conservation initiative in Ketapang and to establish a REDD+ demonstration project in Kapuas Hulu.
